Shotei yummy smoothie

This morning as I arrived from my morning class, my son Rey greets me with his demonstration of shotei. For those who don't practice a martial art shotei is a palm heel strike. He was actually executing very good technique as he followed me into the kitchen. "What are we doing?" Was the question of the morning. "Making a smoothie." I responded. Apparently I was mistaken since my usual morning smoothie has been renamed into the Shotei Yummy Smoothie! Because as its made, shoteis are executed and frankly its just plain yummy. I have to agree with both, the name and the critique. Thanks Rey.

Our Connections

As I was perusing my facebook friends, I took a quick glance over to the friends its suggests. I started to see that many of these people and myself had several mutual friends in common. This is the default of facebook, and for the most part it suggests people you are connected to in some way. I scrolled over some of the names and was pleasantly surprised over and over again how I was connected to completely diverse groups of people, whose connection seemed to be knowing me. What it brought home was that we are all connected in some way, even when you think you aren't.
