    The Bucket List.  It’s your ever-growing ‘do before I die’ list that is full of vacation destinations, adventures, and good times.  I don’t have a bucket list myself, but that doesn’t mean I hate the idea of bucket lists.  I don’t.  I just hate buckets lists...

I am happy to announce my national television commercial debut!

Earlier this year, I licensed some footage to Google for them to use in their newest Android commercial, titled '100 Billion Words'.

The video they used is one I took of my friend John interacting with some novice monks in Myanmar while we were hiking to some nearby tea villages.

The clip can be seen at :38-:40 in the commercial. You can view the commercial on YouTube via this link, or just keep an eye out when watching TV anywhere in the US!
