Remembering Ray Anderson

Remembering Ray Anderson:

"Ray Anderson, the advocate of sustainability in business, died on Monday at age 77. Share his powerful TEDTalk — in which he explores the personal, ethical and practical motives for building a responsible business." Truly, he was an inspirational businessman with a big heart that could change the world we live in. If you haven't heard him speak, please take a moment and learn a bit about the heart and economics of sustainable business. No excuses can be made anymore. Industry, itself is the only entity powerful enough to lead this change and it must start from within.

"If not now, then when? If not me, then who?"

So, I have to get a good handle on my options and I've been taking notes on varying plans of action. What's MY plan, you ask? I plan to be one of the first infected, so I can be the first to come after YOU! So, what's your plan?

Hurricane Kit? Does it come with Rum?

It's a serious wake-up call when moving back to Houston to see so many co-workers preparing Hurricane Preparedness Kits with things like batteries, waterBOB, canned goods, extra gasoline. Wanna know what's in MY Hurricane Kit? It's a box with a note that says..."Get the hell out of Houston."
