The death of HWH PR client, Andre Blay, the creator of home video, was recently announced. Andre was the one who thought of putting movies on tape. Our PR agency pioneered the category with Andre’s company Magnetic Video. We reported to Jack Dryer and later Len White. Steve Roberts at Twentieth-Century Fox did the deal with Andre. They were all fabulous to work with. RIP to a very special human being.
I’m looking for people to participate in a huge book exchange. My favorite librarian started it. You can be anywhere in the world to participate. All you have to do is buy your favorite book (just one) and send it to a stranger.
You’ll receive a maximum of 36 books. It’s going to be so much fun. If you are interested in participating, please let me know. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will send you the details. Thank you.
Paul McCartney To Play Live YouTube Concert Tonight
Be sure to catch Paul McCartney tonight on YouTube live concert to celebrate his new album, Egypt Station.
The 76-year-old rocker will play songs from his Beatles, Wings and solo days at a
secret venue in New York.
The gig will be streamed at 5 p.m. PT, 8 p.m. ET Friday. That’s 1 a.m. Saturday in the UK and 11 a.m. Saturday in Australia.
I am writing this so late I have no idea if this post will reach you. I was going to take another day off, but I woke up just before the DigiDame distribution deadline of 3am. I went to sleep very early, and now will probably be up for an hour or two.
That’s okay. I feel very refreshed. I loved this segment of Million Dollar Listing New York because one of the lead real estate brokers, Fredrik Eklund, meets one of his mentors, real estate developer Larry Silverstein, developer of the World Trade Center, (Twin Towers) and now the developer of the rebirth of the entire Ground Zero area.
I can clearly remember meeting some of my tech heroes early on, and being thrilled to know them so I could carry their inspiration with me every work day. Lucky for me, I had quite a few, so I could rotate them as needed. I’m not sure why at this point, in my senior career, it still thrills me. It’s always great to be surrounded by people that give you hopes and dreams, even in retirement. In my opinion, positive energy, keeps many ailments at bay.
I can hope, can’t I?
No DigiDame today. See you soon.
I think someone was reading my mind. As we get older, I worry that many of us are going to need a lot more assistance in doing household chores, visiting doctors, and preparing meals.
Obviously, I was not alone in my thoughts. A start-up in Miami has dedicated itself to pairing up college students with seniors who need help. I think this is such a wonderful idea.
Go to http://www.joinpapa.com if you need assistance. Encourage a college student that you know to get involved. Pricing is outlined on the website. I am told that every student goes through intense training and is completely vetted. I have included a phone number so you can call and ask all kinds of questions.
