It’s Always More Fun To Share With Everyone

Curious George Soundtrack CoverMy two-year-old son loves the movie “Curious George.” This means we watch it at least once a week. If it weren’t for the fact that I really enjoy the music, mostly original tunes by Jack Johnson, I’d be sick of it by now.

For Christmas, Grant (read: My thoughtful wife, Nancy) got me the “Curious George” soundtrack and sing-a-long album. One song I found particularly appropriate to sample a few lyrics here is “The Sharing Song,” which I gather is written by Adam Topol and Zach Gill but sung by Johnson.

It’s always more fun to share with everyone.
It’s always more fun to share with everyone.

If you have two, give one to your friend.
If you have three, give one to your friend and me.

It’s always more fun to share with everyone.
It’s always more fun to share with everyone.

If you have one, give is something you can learn.
You can still share just by taking turns.

With that in mind, I’m happy to point you to the far right column just above my Utterz widget to see an ever-changing list of my Google Reader shared items. Not that I have some elevated opinion of my own online reading, but I think you’ll find the articles I add to that feed informative, entertaining or somehow useful.

You can also see my shared items by clicking here. You can subscribe to that feed by clicking here.

And just in case you were looking to add your Google Reader shared items to your blog sidebar in a style-friendly code not offered directly from Google Reader, I found an easy-to-follow, 10-minute instruction how-to on Andrew Grant’s blog, Shiny Things. The entry can be found here.

If you’re on Google Reader, friend me so we can see one another’s shared items via the new social elements they’ve added. My profile is under jfallsman. I’m on Google chat only from home (nights and weekends).
