We shut down the office on Friday, Oct 5th and made our way down to Imperial Beach to help Habitat for Humanity build a few homes for families in need. It was a pleasant, end of summer day of manual labor for us and we couldn’t have been happier helping out. We had a blast, all while serving the local community – something we enjoy doing from time to time. Thanks to everyone who helped support the cause!

For some people the best part of watching the big game is seeing all the hilarious commercials advertisers come up with. Although there wasn’t anything too over the top, there were definitely some funny moments, including my personal favorite… M&M’S “It’s That Kind of Party” ad. Thanks to Ad Age, you can watch all of the spots that ran nationally during the game – all in one place.
Last week, TIME Magazine released their picks for the Best Websites of 2011. In making the selections, 5 sites were chosen for each of the following categories: Music & Video, Family & Kids, Sports, News & Info, Financial & Productivity, Shopping & Travel, Health & Fitness, Social Media, Games and last but not least, Education. Google + is an obvious addition to this year’s list in the Social Media category; the fast growing music sharing/discovery service turntable.fm also made the list. If you have a couple extra minutes and want to do something you can feel good about, head on over to Freerice.com, which presents you with multiple choice answers to some relatively easy questions and donates rice to the U.N. World Food Program for each correct answer. Freerice is responsible for the donation of hundreds of millions of grains of rice each month.
We traded our computers & desks for aprons & hair nets as the team volunteered to serve up food and positive vibes to some of our neighbors in need.

For the record, Google+ launched on June 28th.
