Appreciating the Nightwatch by Rembrandt

Long one of my favorite paintings, this video helps you really appreciate the mastery of Rembrandt's work.

HT: Barak Epstein for sending to me.

A touch of class as a speaker's gift

I was recently a speaker at the MarTech event in Boston.  It's a great event and, when I arrived, they handed me a gift card in an envelope.

It's not uncommon for hosts to do that for speakers and I was grateful.

Later, however, when I got back to my room, I saw that it was actually a gift card for $100. 

With that card, I was able to put $50 towards two classes that were seeking to improve their level of Holocaust awareness. (There were many things to fund. I just chose those).  Here they are.

Making History Come Alive: Bus to the Museum of Tolerance
Maus: A Survivor’s Tale

I just thought that was a wonderful idea and a much more meaningful gift than a standard Amazon gift card.
