My -Way, not Driveway, is the moment that we are being trained for in a busy, flexible media driven world of little screens and connected entertainment. The idea is easy enough to grasp: If I can’t link you to it, then it is not worthy of your time…and gadget…and home bandwidth/speed.

Here are a few of the best of the best to spend your break and lunch…and waiting at the Dr’s office….DMV…(red light) or travel time viewing: All of these are found on YouTube
