Think About This: "Every day, just as a tree grows, so do we as beings. As you change, observe how your beauty changes. Within change is the beauty of life’s mysteries. The mysterious thing called life is not a mystery at all but a natural evolution toward perfection." ~ Ron Rathbun
How cool is this…JESSICA STOWELL is a grad student now…at USC. It’s her Alma Mater, btw, and in sunny warm LA. She’s getting a Master’s in Communication Management in the Annenberg Program for Online Communities. It focuses on the technology, content and marketing for building an audience for companies online. It is a wonderful opportunity for her – they only accept 12 students in the program and had almost 30 people apply. Jessica is a promo pro who has worked for Magid as well as Hearst’s KCRA in Sacramento. Well Dunne! Jessica.
With AMERICAN IDOL set to kick off the new season (with the one and only ELLEN – wahoo!) this very evening comes a nice little twist. CHUCK HARRELL, who spins his creative magic at FOX KTVU in the Bay Area, has a family tie goin’ on. Chuck’s nephew, BRYAN, not only is in contention for a ticket to LA via his Atlanta audition, but Bry is also in the promo. Must be pretty talented to land in the promo, eh? Watch tonight and see how this all goes….
Think About This: "Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be a loving expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting. To children, to the poor, to all who suffer and are lonely, give always a happy smile. Give them not only your care, but your heart." ~ Mother Teresa of Calcutta
