Daily Awesome = Space Oddity IN SPACE!

How does one get so much pleasure from something so simple?  The daily awesome is not so much in the technical definition of “awesome”  of expressing awe in the remarkable or outstanding but more in the informal sense, that sometimes you have to slow down and appreciate some of the common, everyday things we take for granted.

Commander Chris Hadfield is the first Canadian to command the International Space Station.  His tour is over and he is coming home to Earth but not before he left us with one final video. Not sure why I avoided it all day. Perhaps I felt it might be cheesy even when everyone said it was so good. Chris sings a revised version of David Bowie’s Space Oddity IN SPACE!!  Commander Chris Hadfield you are AWESOME!

Daily Awesome = Swancers Unite

How does one get so much pleasure from something so simple?  The daily awesome is not so much in the technical definition of “awesome”  of expressing awe in the remarkable or outstanding but more in the informal sense, that sometimes you have to slow down and appreciate some of the common, everyday things we take for granted.

So what happens when your swimmer kids have long waits between events?  Well those funny, goofy swimmers make a dance and become “Swancers.” Check out this little bit of deck dancing. I think it’s awesome!
