I get products sent to me daily to try out. I unfortunately don’t have time to do a post for each item that I get to review. So I want to make sure these items get seen and learned about. The only other solution I could see to do is to do a April’s DVD and Book Product Roundup 2019 on the products I like and want my readers to know about. I hope you enjoy these as much as I and my other reviewers did.

Did you ever hear the joke about the doctor, accountant, and lawyer going in a bar to discuss their estate plans?

After every story, there is a section for fundraisers and a section for donors. Why fundraisers? Two reasons: A planned gift is approximately two hundred times an annual gift and according to Giving USA, 5% of all donations are from corporations, 9% from planned gifts. Bottom line: Dead people give more than corporations, yet who do nonprofits approach? The most over-fished pond: corporations Weisman believes that whether you are uber rich or drive for Uber, you can make a difference in this life and the next. Hence the lessons learned section for donors. The people range from the great granddaughter of a slave who works as a cleaning lady to a multi-millionaire oil man.

Before the inspired nonsense of Monty Python, David Letterman and the Far Side, there were Droodles. With a few squiggles in a simple square, these clever drawings created absurd scenes like “Ship arriving too late to save a drowning witch” (used by Frank Zappa as an album cover), “Octopus signaling for a left turn” and “Clam with buck teeth.” And they were all the creation of one brilliant and unpredictable man: Roger Price.
At the height of their popularity in the mid-1950s, fans enjoyed the Droodles TV show, a Droodles daily newspaper column, Droodles magazine features, Droodles cocktail napkins, even Droodles in ads for Lucky Strike cigarettes. Like hula hoops, drive-in movies and UFOs, Droodles were one of the biggest fads of the 1950s.
Now Droodles make their triumphant return to delight a new generation that can use some laughs. The Ultimate Droodles Compendium includes every one of Roger Price’s 352 most famous Droodles in delightful new full-quality reproductions, with Price’s inspired text and quirky footnotes. There’s more: a Roger Price/Droodles reminiscence by beloved media critic Leonard Maltin, a full history of Roger Price and Droodles by Emmy-winning writer Fritz Holznagel, and comments from comedy legend Carl Reiner, Boing Boing’s Mark Frauenfelder and Carla Sinclair, and others.
Our culture makes it so that even the most organized and efficient among us feels the pressure of the ticking clock and the possibility and regret of missing out. Modern life has evolved in a way that sets us up for stress, pressure, and overload. New norms and attitudes tap into deeply-wired psychological impulses that make it harder than ever to take control of your time. Many of us also have innate personality traits that make the struggle even worse.
No wonder time can become a tyrant that leaves us chronically stressed and discontented. Unlock an approach to life that bestselling author Valorie Burton calls “living timelessly.” You will come to understand
1) the gradual changes that have led us to a place where having too much to do and too little time to do it is the norm,
2) the vision for what it could look like if you were free from the stress of time and how to blast through the obstacles to those possibilities, and
3) the practical steps to choosing the meaningful over the urgent so that your life is unhurried yet purposeful and reflects the values and impact that are unique to you.
