Drink Ovaltine to Wake Up Gay

When I lived in Detroit, the attic of the house I lived in was full of old magazines. My mom took 3 of them, one of which was from the month that she was born. My brother-in-law's brother was over for Christmas and was thumbing through the magazine when he noticed an ad that promised to help him "Wake up Gay." Everyone got quite a kick out of it, so I scanned the page and thought I'd post the whole thing here.

Steve Jobs 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

Rogerio posted this, this morning (with Portuguese subtitles) and I thought it was excellent. (It's similar to "The Last Lecture".)

Ironically, it struck me that his 3 main points jived quite a bit with what we've been studying in our gals' Bible study. (We're reading through the book Peacemaking Women -- which isn't a traditional Bible study by any means, but it's still full of Scripture and is absolutely fantastic in terms of learning to love and forgive others.) I'm hoping, at some point, to tie Steve's thoughts to Tara and Judy's (perhaps on dandelion wine - now called Whispering Weeds) and if I do I'll post a link here.
