Scarlet Fever

.
Wales is going crazy at the moment after the rugby team reached the semi-final of the Rugby World Cup for the first time since the inaugural tournament in 1987.
.
To give you an idea, here's a YouTube clip doing the rounds at the moment.  Apparently it's been adopted as the 'unofficial team' anthem and I admit there's a few lyrics in there that made me chuckle.  Take the cup home?  I certainly hope so.....

Job's Gone

.
I've woken to the sad news this morning that Steve Job's has lost his long battle with health problems.  Not many of us will leave this life and be able able to say, "I changed the world" but from my viewpoint this man could and did.  Iphones, Ipods and Ipads are now a common sight but without his vision who know's if and when the rest of mankind would have caught up with his thoughts?  Admittedly he didn't do it all by himself, and of course Apple aren't a perfect company, but it saddens me more than usual to know that we've lost a huge influence on what will be created tomorrow.
.
I came across the following video of Steve making an address to Stanford University a couple of years ago, and there are a number of 'golden nuggets'' there which have helped me with my general outlook on life. If you haven't already, I recommend you watch it too.
