YouTube Download?

Have you ever bookmarked a great YouTube video and then got disappointed when you went back to view it again and it was either gone or made private?

Yeh, me too.

So I googled for a way to download them and was rewarded with many software options claiming to make that possible.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

So Brandon and I were just discussing what we would do if one of us won tomorrows half a billion dollar lottery drawing. We each wrote it on a piece of paper (so one didn’t influence the other) then exchanged them.

I said I’d want a little self-sufficient log cabin in the middle of the forest, and to do something with the bulk of it for dogs (i.e. rescue abused). With that amount, something could be set up to last long after I am gone and reach dogs in need far beyond the reach of local shelters and rescue leagues. No I would not give money to friends or relatives. I don’t have any that are in need of funds. They may want more but none need it – big difference. People in general, well we need to learn to help one another – all of us, not just those with money. Few help “man’s best friend” and that is where my heart reaches out to.

Brandon said he thought it would be fun to spend life traveling all around the world (simply, not first class) and randomly give strangers, seemingly in need, a locked briefcase full money. Locked because by the time the person opened it, we would be gone, totally anonymous. He would put a letter inside telling the person to do something good for the world once his/her basic needs were met, and that we would be watching to see what they did. Of course we would not be watching, but Brandon thought it would be fun (for him) to make them think they were being watched and perhaps in some way held accountable.

All is well.

Sorry it has been so long since I posted here. I appreciate all the email expressing concerns. All is well.

When we arrived up here we discovered there had been a fire in the house that morning. That, along with other concerns, made us decide it wasn't the house for us. So we headed to a storage facility and unloaded there. Next we checked into a motel. Then we looked at one another and said, "Now what?"

I was granted a leave from work, and extended vacation time. We took advantage of it and really checked out the area. It paid off. We found a great house with lots of potential and proceeded to make it our own - Home.

We also decided to take a break from busy life and just spend time together, settle in, relax, sprout and grow.

I am not happy to see the old Blogger interface is finally gone. I do not like the new one - an understatement. So much so I am not sure I will continue blogging here. Time will tell I guess.
