The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one November 4-6, 2011. I’m on the road, so it’s up to you to spread the word and cheer for each other!

Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others. Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.
What can you do in the Brag Basket?
- introduce yourself
- share some great news from this week
- congratulate a friend
- laugh about something wonderful that you tried that failed
- applaud for each other
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. We all cheer, and everyone feels great. It lets you meet each other a bit. Reading each others’ stories brings us a bit closer to being a community.
How does it work? You write a comment on this post.
This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

I want to BRAG big time about Becky and Sheila for great Tourism Currents track at Blogworld LA. Their positive energy comes through in every tweet and photos people are sharing.
I also want to brag again on my girl Jeanne Robertson. She was in 5 cities in 5 days. She is remarkable. btw, at 68 she is busier and more popular than ever. She credits modern tools like Facebook and YouTube for her new career. She has been a professional speaker for 48 years.
Gee, when Becky said “you are in charge of the brag basket” she probably didn’t mean just me. What wonderful things have y’all been doing this week?

I would like to BRAG on our local media KWCH-TV, KAKE-TV, KNSS-1330AM and Power 98.9 who have all helped get the message out this week about the urgent need for platelets.
Platelets are the part of your blood that help with clotting and right now there is a dangerous shortage across the country.
If you have a few extra hours a month to volutneer, consider giving whole blood or platelets. THANKS!

I wanna brag on the beaches of North Carolina and the value of a good friend. I spent the past week drinking coffee with Lisa as we watched the sun rise over Top Sail Island. No agendas, no meetings, no work — just two girls having fun. I was taken care of — and that my friends, is the value Lisa gave to me this week. Love and coffee.

I taught myself how to edit together widescreen and normal-aspect videos. This is an important step in developing the training program I’m putting together.
Cuba, Missouri’s chamber has a new website, and this blog post leads you there.

Our little town of Sonora has been chosen as one of the host cities for the 2012 Amgen Tour of California. This is one of the top cycling tours in the country and is considered a proving ground for teams heading for the Tour de France. We will be hosting day 4 of the 7 day tour and organizers expect up to 10,000 people to attend, more than doubling the city’s population. It’s an honor to be chosen and a great opportunity to show people what’s special about our piece of the Central Sierras.

Thank you so much, folks for taking great care of the Brag Basket and each other while I was away. Cheers to you all!
