The Dollar Affect

Posted: 2nd January 2013 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

There has been a lot in the news about recently about America’s financial situation, something about falling off a cliff, but today’s blog is about a much more simple American idea. Shawna Wood has set up a not for profit organization, with a simple plan to get every US Household to donate a dollar a […]

Post Pals

Posted: 28th December 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

Post Pals is just fantastic, I stumbled across it via a Tweet from former YDIR winner Alice Pyne and I just had to make sure I updated the blog as soon as possible, so dog walked, dinner eaten, Master Ydir in bed here it is.  If my word press app has worked you should see […]

Joe’s Diner 292 U.S. 24 Wabash, IN 46992

Posted: 11th December 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

In my internet travels I stumbled across a great story of a waitress doing it right. Fellow blogger Ashley Leavelle (this a a link to her blog) witnessed someone not just doing their job but doing a great job of doing their job. I’ll put her experience in quotes as I love that function, plus […]

bInspired by vInspired

Posted: 11th December 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

After the great title the pressure is on to write a blog that at least matches it, but at usual the quality of the writing will always be vastly overshadowed by the brilliant job or thing being done by someone else. Today’s YDIR goes to vInspired which is a charity that is focused on helping […]

Posted: 22nd October 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

Growing Skills

Posted: 25th August 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

Hello, Please accept my apologies for the lack of blog recently, which is entirely down to me getting distracted by lots of things, such as the day job, potty training (not for me, but for Master Ydir I got the hang of that quite some time ago) and a wedding amongst other things. The lack […]

Better Late Than Never

Posted: 9th July 2012 by Mr. YDIR in Daily YDIR

I should have posted this two weeks ago, and part of me thinks that the moment has passed and it is too late to say thanks and you’re doing it right, but then part of me knows that Dusty (site creator) wouldn’t agree with that kind of thinking and all of me would have to […]
