Trying to bring a little lightness to each day

There is no shortage of serious and worrying news these days, every place we turn. In an effort to make the dinner time a little more happy, fun, and inspirational I am breaking a long standing rule
that I was brought up on:  NO TV during dinner (I did notice, however, that if my dad was home and there was a ice hockey playoff game on, the TV was on).

As most of you know, TED is a nonprofit organisation devoted to the spreading of new and innovative ideas. It started out as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment and Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.

So my idea is that we’ll set up a laptop or even a phone, because the visual is often not  important, and watch/listen to a different TED talk during dinner.

I also saw, but have yet to explore, a new series focused on education during the  COVID-19 pandemic.  To support millions of students, parents, and teachers affected by COVID-19 pandemic, TED-Ed is working with expert educators and TED speakers to share video-based lessons and activities with families throughout the world every day for free.
