FOHBro, Thanks for the "man hug" - Glad we are now FOHBROs - At this point I'm a little wary of any next step involving chef knives, a small slice and blood mixing.

They are TOO Cute FohBro! Have a great Papa Day brother and even if they give you a Smurf coffee mug or an Elvis tie, just love them and use them cause a REAL man can pull off wearing an Elvis tie and sipping off of a Smurf mug! LOL.
Peace Brother Michael!

Michael, I've tried your link to "Follow" you on Twitter, but it's not working presently. Tried Twitter search, with no results! I'm FLPizzaGirl on Twitter. What's your user name? I'm trying to recruit my restaurant worker friends on Twitter to join FOHBOH w/ Direct Messaging! Great Forum! Truly enjoy your feedback! Sorry I tend to disappear from time to time due to time constraints of business related Social Media vs Personal!( Good point on that- TRUST factor!)

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
