The Whole Point of Social Networking

Perry Belcher has this whole social networking thing figured out:

Take 10 minutes to watch and listen. (One caveat, he does drop a couple of bombs as he's talking, so screen before sharing with your children. But those notwithstanding, the philosophy of what he's saying is dead on.)

Nathan Clark George

What a day!

I had the privilege of attending the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention in Nashville just for the day today. I met lots of great folks, and reconnected with others.

One of the men I met was Nathan Clark George, whose music and family have inspired and entertained many as they travel together around the country.

The learn more about the George family, see the Charlottesville VA Daily Progress: Keeping the show on the road. I look forward to knowing him better and hearing more great music from him.

Be sure to pick up his CD "Pull Up a Chair" and the DVD documentary of his family by the same name. Both are available from Franklin Springs Family Media.
