Offered For your Consideration:
Full Monte "Carson" is a stunning 2016 Black Gelding By Full Medal Jacket and out of a great mare named Queens Banker, who is a daughter of Prince Stanley and is out of a Money Broker Mare. With his soft, slow, strong legs he will no doubt be a contender for those early Futurities if that's your goal. He is also quiet minded, gentle and kind! He's been handled and worked with daily. He ties, clips, ponies etc and will make a great show horse! NSBA BCF and SIF enrolled as well as AQHA IF.
Inquire within! Show home is a must!

PROUD!!! and

PROUD!!! and ... maybe a little excited !!! ❤

Wow!!!! Another successful Breeding and Foaling Season is in the books!! We say it year after year

Wow!!!! Another successful Breeding and Foaling Season is in the books!! We say it year after year, but we truly could not do this without the support of each and everyone of you!! Thank you mare owners for trusting Full Medal Jacket to give you the Foal and future show partner you have always wished for, to our supporters and Fans who reaffirm what we see in Full Medal Jacket and his offspring and to all the vets and breeding facilities that assist in getting these amazing mares in Foal!! It is truly an honor to provide FMJ to you all, we are anxiously waiting for the two year olds to start showing and the yearlings to get in the pen for a few Lounge Line events!
Thank you just does not seem adequate but we truly are! We look forward to watching your FMJ offspring grow up and their future show career!!
Thank you Amanda Ulrich Hampel of Hampel Design for another beautifully created ad!! You are the best and we are Thankful to have you on the team!!!

I just launched my first book, The Burned-Out Blogger's Guide to PR! Thank you to Michael Arrington for this awesome review:
"It’s indispensable for startup founders, and they’ll love it. Bloggers and reporters will cry over how perfectly it describes their frustrating lives. And PR people will groan and say it’s all nonsense."

Listen up musicians:
Check out Philip Kaplan's new service DistroKid, which lets musicians quickly get their music on iTunes/Spotify/Amazon/Google Play. Unlimited song uploads for $20/year, and you keep all the royalties. You can upload songs whenever you want (you don't need to package them as an album), and they show up in the stores in 2-4 hours. It looks great and is already getting rave reviews from people involved in this business.

Much of the tech industry — Apple, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter, many others — is asking the NSA for more transparency, including allowing them to disclose how many requests for data each company receives.
Big thumbs up on this. Thanks to all involved — particularly those who demanded internally that it happen.
It's bad business if everyone distrusts the internet (and if the NSA request counts are small enough, they'll help combat that), but I don't think this outweighs these companies' desire to do the right thing.
This won't (and should not) end the discussion, but it will hopefully lead to progress.

Unless there is something to factually dispute, I found Sean Parker's post (http://techcrunch

Unless there is something to factually dispute, I found Sean Parker's post (http://techcrunch.com/…/weddings-used-to-be-sacred-and-oth…/) defending his wedding and critiquing Internet journalism to be completely reasonable (and even funny at times). The ridicule he's received reminds me of the mean, make-fun-of-this-guy groupthink teenagers routinely engage in.
If I were a billionaire I'd probably have an elaborate fantasy wedding too. Because that's the point of becoming a billionaire. So you can do stuff that makes others mock and scoff but lets you live out your dreams. Obviously there's the potential for gluttony and selfishness, but it's possible to do it responsibly, and alongside significant amounts of philanthropy — checkboxes he appears to have checked. He earned it, let him spend it.
To those of you who made fun of the length of the post: grow up. He's defending himself from a huge public onslaught. That takes facts, a lot of carefully crafted words, and yeah, a few more minutes of your time. These snarky, easy jokes are part of the problem.
Finally, the fact that Sean Parker is now saying things like, "in its present form, social media may be doing more harm than good" is important. He helped build Facebook and mentored Mark Zuckerberg, the most powerful person in social media.

The first trailer for Ender's Game

The first trailer for Ender's Game.
Have been anxious about this, but Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham is a great choice, and the glimpses of the Battle Room mesh pretty well with what I've always imagined. Okay now I'm kinda giddy.

What happens when you combine Medieval England with the Zombie Apocalypse?
Literary awesomeness. If you have a Kindle, check out The Scourge. Beyond being a super-fun read, it really makes you think about how people must have acted during the Black Death.
