Comments04/04/2017 #18 Randall BurnsThank You @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher , always great to hear from you. if you were hoping that it wasn't going to fall then you already knew that it was going to, (your intuition was already there). It is a matter of perspective but I don't think it would be as good of a story, or a message, if it didn't fall. Makes me think about how many great stories I've missed out on because everything went well and "as planned".04/04/2017 #13 Dean OwenI am in awe of your talent! I do hope you get a chance to see (or even participate) in the annual Harbin Ice Festival:
http://edition.cnn.com/2017/01/09/travel/harbin-winter-festival-china/04/04/2017 #12 AnonymousIce sculpting!!!! Awesome! My snowmen were sculptures to my young Canadian eyes. Oh home sweet home I miss you. Though I suppose home is wherever I am and really, San Diego's sunshine is its own slice of paradise for now for certain. Loved this!!! Your pen sculpts things too! :)04/04/2017 #11 Don 🐝 Kerr@Randall Burns Ah Jeez my son, what a beauty Husqy. You must have ripped it up some good! Great story again. Reminded me of my dad, he ran a sawmill, and the first chainsaw he introduced me to back in the early '60s. Seven freakin' hp!!! Sounded like a Zero diving on to the Indianapolis!04/04/2017 #10 Aaron Skogen#9 I remember watching! Yeah, from memory, I thought they opened Strange Brew with The Great White North in the background too . . .
Regardless, those guys were hilarious. I still LMAO when I watch that show. It never gets old.
Being from MN and knowing many Canadians, I always felt a sort of kinship with our friends to the north.
I may have to watch a few episodes of SCTV via the Internet tonight. A laugh would do me good 😉.04/04/2017 #9 Randall Burns#7 Thanks for the great feedback @Sara Jacobovici, @Kevin Pashuk, @Aaron Skogen
- Great version of "Oh Canada", I had to stand up in my office while watching. :-)
- Sthil's are excellent saws! The title photo is actually from the 'SCTV" show, Canada's answer to SNL, a regular sketch that they did, (Bob and Doug McKenzie), called "The Great White North", was the predecessor to "Strange Brew". Note, this was "back in the day" when they could still smoke and drink beer on TV, LMAO!! A lot of Canadian actors got their start on "SCTV", Martin Short, John Candy, Dan Aykryod, just to name a few, hilarious show.03/04/2017 #6 Sara JacoboviciYes, i agree with all, @Randall Burns; you are a great storyteller, mood music and all! Love your attitude towards your sculpture falling. Love your story of the beer encounter with a fellow Canadian, eh. Love the diversity of images and sounds and how you pulled it all together. Please keep sharing your stories. Hope you enjoy this Vancouver version of O'Canada. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc3OO0IUPjE03/04/2017 #5 Aaron Skogen@Randall Burns, I'm a Sthil guy myself, but that Husky is a no doubt a good saw. The closest I've come to ice sculpting was cutting my dock free after leaving town for week at thanksgiving. I came home to find it locked into six inches of ice. . .
"My brother, he's a genuis eh!"
Being a Minnesota farm kid and one who's dad had a sawmill, I can relate to "haven't we all. . ." In both contexts 😉.
Loved the Strange Brew intro photo! Great story Randall!

beBee can differentiate itself by becoming a place where corporate executives as well as editors and journalists from major platforms gather and engage.
It would take a team of committed Ambassadors and bees to comb through their own contacts, generate a list and reach out to as many Fortune 500 executives, other executives, journalists, and editors as possible.
We can come up with some standard communication pieces, divide up the list, and assign individuals to leverage their existing contacts, reach out.
An alliance with CEO . com would be extremely helpful.

Comments07/02/2017 #18 debasish majumderi guess, personal contributions with rich values and pertinent appeals are most significant in an affinity based platform, where the platform will become a 'Brand' of distinction. so the potentialities and sincere endeavor with rich constituents are essentially to enrich a brand's value. there only lies the gravity of a person. apart from affinity and associating skill, a brand cannot be popular. so personal brand, i guess is relevant, moment the person is having the capacity to contribute or share his skill to usher majority, and thus the platform on which he or she is sharing makes the platform a unique 'brand'. however, lovely insight @Javier 🐝 beBee! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.26/01/2017 #6 David B.
