11 Seconds of Glory – 22 Hour Time Lapse of Seeds Growing

Just because I think this video is super sweet, I am posting it here to my blog. This is a time lapse I started last night and it ran until tonight for about a total of 22 hours. It snapped a photo every 5 minutes and then created the video. I would love to do a lot more, but not sure I have the equipment to do it for a full growing season. In any case, enjoy this time lapse of a handful of green bean seeds growing for 22 hours, compressed to 11 seconds :)

The McIntyre Square Foot Garden Begins

Amy and I decided that if we were going to be back in Tennessee we would do one of the things we have always wanted to do… and that is grow a garden! We strive as best as possible to eat healthy (and organic when possible and applicable) and growing our own food and using our own compost bin seemed like the next logical step. So here we are. Embedded below is a slideshow of pictures form our garden. We are growing everything from seeds (with the exceptions of strawberries which we bought roots and blackberries which we bought a 6″ plant).

I will post more photos as we go, but this is pretty fun so far :) We created a square foot garden that is 8 feet wide, 4 feet long and 1 foot deep (separated into 32 squares). We will be planting something different in all of the different square feet (hence the name).

For those of you who are interested in some of the details, here you go:

  1. We made our own soil using peat moss, vermiculite and 3 kinds of compost (commonly referred to as Mels Mix)
  2. We created our own gardening plan and will have a mix of around 25 fruits and veggies and 5-10 flowering plants and herbs rotated through out the growing seasons
  3. We will also be using my dads Topsy Turvy Upside Down tomato growers to grow tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, hot peppers and green peppers (you should buy these!)
  4. You can see all the photos as we go in our Square Foot Gardening Photo Set

CNN Uses change:healthcare to Show People How to Save Money on Healthcare Expenses (video)

Finally people are starting to catch on! The place I work, change:healthcare, is on a mission. That mission is to add transparency to the confusing world of healthcare and to help normal people like you and I make better decisions regarding where we spend or money for health related expenses. The truth is, you know more about a local pizza joint from the internet than they guy who delivered your child or prescribed your latest medication. That is just wrong… not to mention that there is a good chance that you paid too much money. This is where change:healthcare steps in.

GoDaddy UK Commercial from Mevio with Candice Michelle

Just found this video commercial from when I was working at PodShow. It was a lot of fun to be a part of (even though I was just behind the scenes). This I believe was for GoDaddy UK in cooperation with Mevio in the UK. The video is the “I want to be a GoDaddy Guy” spoof and features Candice Michelle, the GoDaddy Girl. Enjoy!

BTW, if you want to see some of my behind the scenes photos of the event, click on over to my flickr set to see them.
