Hi everyone!


FYI to those who used the photo booth at the Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore during our visit there, the pictures are posted online for you to view.   Go to and check them out.  Very fun!

Hi Thomas, an iPhone shot will be a start. Can you send them to I'll send them to Zohar, too. Thanks!

I have them, taken with my iphone, not very sharp, so you are only able to read the big print. I can send them to your email if you give me an address.

Contact Rich Cox or Chris Sams... the Co-Poobas for the SF conference.  Both are on this site.

I don't know where to post this so sorry. I wanted to sign up for the SF Conference deal, but I can't access the page I have tried with Chrome, Firefox and Safari. I could make a phone call (old school), but to whom? Any ideas anyone.

They did. Just not in diamond patterns.

The Spread the joy activity is basically this.

Get the groups into teams of 3.

1Person is the big cheese, 1 the Top Banana and the 3rd the Head Honcho.

It starts off with one of them (say the Big Cheese) in charge. They now have 2 minutes to give commands to thier 'staff' of two to go out into the world (room) and 'spread the joy' i.e. "Find someone with nice shoes and tell them how nice their shoes are". the two staff then run off, action their instruction then come back for more. At the end of 2 minutes the whistle blows and then the boss has 30 seconds to get 'whatever they want/need' from their staff. This might include personal praise, or a back rub or whatever comes to mind.

Then a new boss comes in and the whole thing repeats, then the last new boss takes their turn.

I may have some of the timinings off but that is essentially it.

I'm sure if you ask Matt he will be able to give you full details.
