Haven’t I seen that shirt before?

You may remember that back in January, we invited everyone along on a 7 month adventure. A good-sized group of women (and some men, too) joined in and finished the first month, which was all about food, in February. Everyone did it in different ways: some of us ate only 7 foods all month long, […]

more of the story: bruce

A couple of weeks ago, we showed this video at FN. Bruce Patterson has an amazing story of survival as a parajumper (or PJ) for the Air Force. Now, Bruce has been a part of our staff for the past few years, and one thing we’ve learned about him is that he is definitely understated. […]
