Meeting TED!!!!

I certainly hope you didn't pop onto my blog thinking I actually met someone named Ted!.. No no no..

TED is an incredible website that I visit often when I need some cranial stimulation.
Have any of you met TED?
if not.. and you have some casual down time (yeah whats that these days) I would encourage you to do so.

TED    http://www.ted.com/ is a forum where you can view mini talks on a plethora of topics (almost anything).

Its where people share their ideas, views, etc.
You can find mini talks (about 20 minutes on almost any topic).

One of my favorite talks is by Brene Brown on :The Power of Vulnerability
Incredibly insightful.. but it does run about 20 minutes (so please give it its due course).
After viewing this.. I have concluded.. Yes I am vulnerable.. and I am OK with that.

There are so many different topics.. David Blane addresses a medical group on how he conditioned his body to hold his breath for 17 minutes.How I held my Breath for 17 Minutes

You can review all of the speakers and topics.. I just find this to be an incredibly easy way to get some knowledge without having to leave my pajamas!!

Be well


  1. sites like this make me wish I had faster internet! I have wildblue satellite service but I still can't watch videos and the like. But it beats dial up!
    But I agree, learning while in pj's = awesome

  2. I know of that site and I go there from time to time, but I'm a lame-o and can never decide what I want to hear, so I've never watched one. - Okay - I'm totally going to find something to watch now! You've inspired me.

  3. Sounds very cool. I will check it out.

  4. I downloaded the TED app to my iPad, but I've never really used it. I will have to actually check it out. :)

  5. Your GREAT excitement about TED Talks reminds me of my EXACT reaction when I discovered TED and TED-like sites. It just became another wonderful part of my life. I spent months putting together a comprehensive website which links to dozens of video talks and lectures sites. I believe Brene Brown's talk was excellent and is much the talk across blogs world-wide. Please keep sharing your enthusiasm about TED with your readers. Jim Melfi, founder, VideoTalks.org.

  6. Love TED!! There is a lecture about marine animals that blend into their environment that is literally the coolest thing I have ever seen! I'll try and find it and send you the link.

  7. Thank you so much for your comment on my blog tonight.

    I am so sorry that you lost your husband, I don't know what I would do if my Walt went before me.

    As to the Book, I only wish that I had it in hard copy, I would send it to you. But I have it on my Kindle.

    But YES, you should really read this book! It will make you feel so much better. And you will be comforted to know that just by thinking about our lost loved ones, they will be there with us.

    The book also helps us to know what our loved ones that have crossed over, went through. He says that even if they were suffered a horrific death (Heaven forbid), such as an auto accident. That they didn't feel anything, or at least they do not remember feeling any pain, once they die and the spirit leaves the "earthly shell", etc....

    I am so sorry to run at the mouth, but I am so excited about what he discloses in this book. I feel that it is a perfect read for you.
