Got Plate Envy? The Chesapeake Bay Trust has a New License Plate (E-123)

Slowly you are beginning to see the newest Chesapeake Bay license plate in Maryland. Since 2003, we’ve seen the familiar plate with Claudia the crab and Wade the Blue Heron designed by Annapolis designer Joe Barsin.

Now there’s a new plate in town designed by Tina Cardosi and TM Design from Frederick.

After getting our own plates, we spoke with Tina about the process and how they came up with the idea, and how it made it’s way to my rear bumper. And then, we spoke with Dr. Jana Davis from the Chesapeake Bay Trust to learn about the other side–how much it means to the Trust, what it actually pays for, why a new design was wanted, and what lies ahead!

Have a listen and then get in touch with the MVA and get your plate!

5 Minutes…20 Slides… Do You Have What It Takes For Ignite Annapolis 4? (E-122)

Ignite Annapolis is here. Well, not quite yet, but it is coming up on Thursday, March 14th. Go mark your calendars now!

Ignite is a community building program that puts 16 people on the hot spot for 5 minutes. They develop a topic for which they have some passion–from silly to mundane to highly technical to comedic to … well you get the picture. Virtually anything. They develop 20 slides to illustrate their topic. And then Ignite gives them 5 minutes to explain it all and the slides are pre timed. The event will leave you scratching your head. Crying. Laughing. Thinking. But most importantly, it will leave you talking. Talking with your neighbors and some of the 600 people that shared the experience.

This week, we sat down with Liz Thibodeau and Kathleen Booth who are two of the organizers for Ignite 4. We talk about the concept, its growth, the way it builds community and how to become involved as an attendee, speaker, or sponsor!

If you need a break (and don’t we all), this is a perfect way to press a reset button on the winter-doldrums.  Have a listen!
