So that being said as I said previously I am planning to come back to blogging Jan 1, 2013 especially if that Mayan Calendar thing doesn't work out ( on the other hand did you know there are criminals in Florida filing your taxes - boo yah no more taxes for me! )
What else...um oh in fine tradition I think I should tell you some of those fun Summer things to do because why else are you reading my blog? Are you a zombie? Ok, without further ado here is my Summer what to do and where to go edition
Ok one way to get a Groove on is to listen to a lot of music and I adore KFog's Acoustic Sunrise and Sunset if just because it introduced me to a lot of cool music. So check out this event in Palo Alto
FOURTH ANNUAL WORLD MUSIC DAY FESTIVAL
The Palo Alto City Council has declared Sunday June 17 as World Music Day.

This is a fun and unique family event. For more information, please visit http://www.pamusicday.org
On Wednesday June 20th Connect with the best person to connect with because that is why you connect with them right? Check out Kristy Rogers amazing connects When people feel "safe" with you, their best tends to come out. There are two very different ways to inspire a sense of safety and most of us are only aware of one way-our way. Our default mode works well with those like us and can be unknowingly offensive to others. You will gain clarity and insight of the two modes so you can encourage others to be their best when they're around you.
$20 pre-registration | $30 day of & at the door | Free for PBN co-partners
We look forward to connecting with you.
