Three Things To Inspire Your Weekend #50


Quote of the day: 
If you remember me, then I don't care if everyone else forgets. -Haruki Murakami


Where does inspiration to spread love and happiness come from? A good answer may be derived from the stories that are shared below.

The first is of 18-year old Philip Soussou. As all 411 seniors at Boston Latin School in the US arrived for their final day of classes they stumbled on portraits of themselves along the corridors.
Philip sketched self portraits of his entire class as a parting gift, using charcoal and worked on the project sometimes late into the evening. He worked on it everyday for four months and although he didn't know each student personally, he got names from the school registry and used Facebook and sometimes his phone camera to take photos without giving anything away.

American home improvement and retail store Lowe's presented two of its newest hires on social media, Owen and his service dog named blue, both employed to greet customers at their new store in North Regina, Saskatchewan. A message on the store's twitter page goes, “Our recent hire couldn’t find a job due to brain injury & a support dog. So meet Blue, our customer service canine!”.



As seen on Arch Daily, 'Valeria House', by architects Luciano Kruk, María Victoria Besonías. Located in Valeria del Mar, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Its great design is simplistic, 'It is ground in a new development, with lush vegetation and crossed by tall dunes'.

  6. What a nice way to start a weekend.

    Phillip Sossou has some serious talent. How neat that he so generous with his sharing of it.

    I love that Lowes acknowledged their new employees. Corporations sometimes come across as cold and uncaring.

    Have a great weekend, Blogoratti.

Folks tent to"remember" me... guess that is a "good" thing (if only remembered for the "Rumors") ...

  33. Best spell caster of the year revealed by google. save your crumbling marriage now.

    BEST AND GENUINE SPELL CASTER ONLINE TO HELP SAVE BROKEN MARRIAGE AND BROKEN RELATIONSHIP
    Am Jerry miler, I live in London, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she left the house with our kids to her parents' for almost 5 months. All efforts to bring them back proved abortive. Friends and Family were all in concern and my very close mate gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and he quote; “There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spiritual matters, I searched for a spell caster on the internet, his advert was everywhere, i found his number and called him on his mobile number +2347052958531. Although I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and I had no choice than to follow his advice, because I never dream of losing my lovely wife and I was desperate. So I did all what he told me to do and i did. He told me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, until the second day when my wife called and said she was coming HOME…..It was like a joke to me!!! That’s how I got my family back through spiritual means and our relationship is now stronger than ever. One of the price I was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by Dr Ewan. And this is his email too if you wish to contact him and solve your problem too covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com , my advice to you out there is to visit this great Dr Ewan and tell him your problems. He's capable of handling anything spiritual and spell casting. Thanks a lot for saving my marriage. covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com. You can also add him up on watsapp on +2349057353987, you can also call him on his mobile number +2347052958531
