“Red Bull Social Opinion Leader”? Thanks, Red Bull Oman!

ImageGot a call from Red Bull Oman today saying they wanted to deliver a case of Red Bull to me. No arguments here! ;-) Met up with Roopa and Bannia at City Centre Seeb and was surprised to see it was a case of 24 cans!  When I asked what is was for, they said it was a prize for being a “Social Opinion Leader”! Nice! A big thanks to Stacey and the entire Red Bull team in Oman! And of course a huge thanks to Roopa and Bannia for taking the time to drive out to MCC to personally deliver the case!

Once I got the case home, my son, Gershom, had his own ideas of what to do with the cans:ImageThe unofficial “Red Bull Tower Engineer”! :-)

Awesome Video Showing the Beauty of Oman

This video was posted on youtube 2 months ago from some tourists who obviously enjoyed themselves in Oman.  Their video includes a lot of fantastic spots in the Sultanate and it also captures the beauty of Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa just outside of Muscat.  

If you’ve never been to Oman, I’m betting that this video will at least make you think, “Hey, I’d love to check that place out!” :-)
