Marring the Beauty – Spend Those Dollars Online Folks

I dropped into Hubbards last weekend and with dismay saw more signs at the exit to the old highway. Where there used to be one or two signs about local business, now there are numerous ones mostly targeting travelers, but this fall I see new ones. Ones for roofing, construction, soil fill. So what does this say? Those who spent

Energize Me.

In my youth I was enthralled with the ability to take my music remotely – more than the portable tape recorders of my older siblings. I enthralled in the walking, bilking and just plain hanging out ability to listen to my cassettes. Indeed the Walkman from Sony changed my buying patterns – dropping being tied to the family turn table

Wipe Me with a Porterhouse Please.

Recently while grocery shopping I noticed a new product which might help me keep my stainless appliances up to par.

Evoking (the Wrong) Response with Facebook Ads

Once mighty Corel evoked some response by telling folks on Facebook that they should switch from Adobe CS to its photo editing software.

African Spam Moves from email to Facebook

  It starts out with this. Usually they have one person in common as a friend. Be Aware. Mine was from Mirah ILge   You can respond like I did, but you are not talking to an individual but a bot – something which looks for a response and then sends this out. No doubt since what I said has

Comment with Reach

I recently had a complaint with my local radio station. When I commented on their page, I also took the time to post it to my own timeline. Copying and pasting the same text will ensure that you are replicating the same message. To start though, use the @ symbol in front of the name. In this case I used
