No Truer Words to Live By

I worry about the direction we are heading as a nation, and what type of country my son will inherit when he is grown. It seems that fewer and fewer people take the time to worry about or care for the greater good, but rather they focus only on self interests or how does this benefit "me."

On this holiday, I'd like to share a few words from Dr. King that I wish we all would embrace and truly live by.

"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity."

"Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies - or else? The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken, or else we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation."

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'"

and finally (although I could continue for much longer)...

"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. "

Rather than hope for a better world, make a personal, small effort toward change. Donate your time, let that car merge, pick up the piece of trash off the ground and put it in a waste basket, smile, say thank you. So, enjoy this holiday and thank you!

The History of the Sandbox Threads Logo

Sandbox Threads is not yet officially a year old, but the planning was well underway by this time last year. The hardest part of was finding the "right" name. We came up with many, many good names only to find out that the web address was already taken.

For several weeks, Sandbox Threads was We liked the name, but it really didn't have much to do with kid clothes, and we were never really sold on the name, and we didn't like the .net. For about a day, we decided that Retro Bambino was an option, but it was quickly discarded because it was too gender specific.

Finally, one night while my wife was sleeping Sandbox Threads hit me pretty much out of nowhere. I was so excited that I woke my wife up to tell her (this never works). She didn't remember the next morning, but when I told her, she loved it, and Sandbox Threads was born.

Above is the visual history of the progression the logo of Sandbox Threads has made. I miss our first logo (and by far longest lasting logo), but I also really like our new logo and color scheme. We hope you agree.
