I’m trying to stay true to one of my 2011 initiatives which is “Teach your(our) children Well…” and of course by children I mean the young and the young at heart. I am constantly on a quest to learn something new or to approach learning in a different way. As I laid out in a previous article the knowledge is out there for the taking it really is, you just have to be willing to put in the time and effort.

I will be posting videos like the above from time to time as part of a “classroom” series so that the idea of learning/teaching can become an active part of what we do here at GFM. To get the full benefit of these types of videos you have to constantly return to them
