Blue Beanie Day Video

Monday Nov. 30, 2009 is the 3rd annual International Blue Beanie Day in support of Web Standards.

I’ve been one of the chief instigators of Blue Beanie Day since 2007.

This year, I made a video to help promote it.

Fiesta Freedom Ride – Ford Fiesta Movement

This video is my official entry in the Ford ‘Fiesta Movement’ contest. Ford is looking for 100 agents to test drive the new Fiesta for 6 months. The 100 winners will get FREE use of the Fiesta, plus gas and insurance for 6 months (and looks like the winners will also get a Sony Webby cam to video all their adventures).

I filmed this video in Dearborn, Michigan on location at Henry Ford’s home, my home, Ford world headquarters and the Henry Ford Centenial Library (also in Dearborn).  Several Vos family members show up in the video.

Please re-post this link ( ) on your blog or Twitter it to all your friends.  I need your help to create a lot of excitement with this video by March 23rd, 2009.

When I reach my goal (driving the Fiesta for 6 months and making more cool videos), I’ll be posting more fun, fun, fun, fun Fiesta videos on another new website I’ve created:

My Taylor Guitar

This guitar is a Taylor…  and my older guitar is a Gibson.

My Taylor Guitar

I learned to play on the Gibson guitar when I was 16 years old. The Gibson served me well for many years, but developed a hairline crack.  Then a couple years ago I sold a car, and bought a new Taylor guitar.

Still Singing After All These Years

I’ve been writing music for over 28 years, and I’m finally getting around to publishing a few of my songs.

Doug Vos singing

I played guitar and sang a few songs I wrote at my wedding, back in 1980. Once in a while I play my guitar at someone else’s wedding — although mostly my daughters play their string quartet music — for violin, viola, and cello.

Music, photography, and other good stuff!

I’ll be posting some of my music (songs I wrote and recorded), and some of my photography, as well as other creative items.
