FBI Digital Billboards - New York City Times Square

The FBI began this national wide initiative by posting 100 of digital billboard in 23 cities and some other organizations joined them so now there are over 1500 billboards in 40 states. When I first heard it I thought of the "Wanted" signs in the post office and that is was it is on in digital format like a digital photo frame. Last Sunday on the drive from Atlantic City (NJ TPKE) I saw one of these billboards. Honey was thought I was insane because I got a little excited and jumped in his lap blocking his view of the road. I just wanted to see if there was someone on there I knew. That is the next question, would you report someone you knew? Or would you report someone you identified from the poster?

Some of the cases in which the billboards assisted to make the arrest:
  • In Tennessee, a man was on a 2 week robbery spree

  • In Virgina, a man arrested for money laundering - he turned himself in

  • In New Mexico, a young kid wanted for bank robbery - he was driving in the car with his mother and she noticed her kid on the billboard - he turned himself in that evening

Well, there will be one of these billboards posted in New York City, Times Square.

You Have Every Reason To Smile - So Do It!

Smiling is the cheap way to look good and feel good instantly. This morning I tried it. I smiled during the walk to my office, on the phone and to everyone in the office. I gotta tell you I'm feeling pretty darn good right now. The funny thing is everyone is smiling back, so not only am I feeling darn good right now but my smiles are making other people smile back - it's infectious I tell you.
This is definitely worth sharing....so go on ahead and smile today I heard sunshine is good for your teeth.
