As a self-proclaimed sponsorship geek, I am very interested in Papa John’s Super Bowl strategy – particularly as it plays out against rival Pizza Hut. http://promomagazine.com/eventmarketing/news/papa-johns-super-bowl-sponsor-0114/
Papa John’s has purchased rights to be the Official Pizza sponsor of Super Bowl XLIV this week in Miami. Now get this: Papa John’s will not buy a 30-second TV… Continue

First to start with my tutorial on the Google Wave Meeting Agenda Template. While this may not be the best way to currently hold one's meetings with the increasing amount of bots, features, apps, and gadgets that are being added to wave very soon exporting one's Meeting Wave into a usable and trackable document is not long… Continue

So this is just awesome!! Low and behold i had to do another Power Point presentation for school next week. Boo000…. However, I found Prezi. Now this web application is just too cool.

Just this morning, my daughter decided she was going to make her white animal balloon she got yesterday at a charity event into a zebra, so she asked for a black marker. Both my husband and I told her it would pop, and her reply was “no it won’t.” She grabbed the marker and marked away – making the albino animal balloon into a beautiful zebra – and it didn’t pop.
Her intention was to make that zebra, and it didn’t matter to her that her parents said it wouldn’t work. She jumped out… Continue

The landscape of business is intensely challenged during a recession. This process forces marketers to precisely redefine their brands and know exactly what they stand for during tough times. There is a tremendous challenge to interacting with and engaging a nervous recessionary consumer without interrupting their life. Build your brand personality to highlight ease of use and unmistakable experience to encourage your target consumer to spend time learning about your brand, even though they may… Continue

"I know you don't know what this is..."
It was the beginning of a sales pitch that was headed for doom. When the dulcimer player was attempting to sell the activities director on granting her a paid spot on the activities schedule, she made five fundamental errors.
1. She didn't introduce herself. She showed up at the front desk, saying, "I'm here to see the activities director. The receptionist didn't know if she was a family member, or whether she had an appointment. It… Continue

"Daddy, are you awake?"
"I said, are you awake?"
"I want to watch TV."
"I don't want to watch football."
"You weren't watching it, you were asleep."
"But people don't snore when they rest their eyes."
"How does meditation make you make that noise?"
"Nuh-uh. I don't believe you."
"I'll ask Mommy."
"No, she's — oh, I guess she's meditating too."
"Why can't I watch my… Continue

Ahhh... to be an American in 2010!
Did you know that the majority of people in the U.S. that are below the poverty line have cable TV? In many countries, the average person doesn't even have shoes. We're complaining in this country that our poor don't have broadband Internet access.
(This is when I sound old...)
When I grew up in Connecticut, none of my neighbors had air conditioning. We used to stay in the basement on hot days because it was cooler down there.… Continue

iPhone owners are a funny bunch of people. We already know we're the hippest mobile phone users on the planet and we have no problem flaunting it. But when we get around other iPhone owners we have to find something else to brag about.
That something else is apps. It seems every time I get around another iPhone owner all we do is compare apps. It usually goes down something like this...… Continue

I make no bones about it, nor am I ashamed to say it, I love to dress. My t-shirts with my favorite things on them are my way of dressing. I have Batman, Penn & Teller, Lenny and Joe's Fish Tales (a Connecticut seafood landmark with yearly shirts), and one of Napoleon's famous hand in jacket on it. People think it's casual, but I do think of my mood and then pick the shirt. I have some from charity events, all 5 years of Indy Fringe, rock concerts, places we visited, and many others too… Continue

I check out Smaller Indiana and BlogIndiana daily, and am so often lost in envy when I read about the tweet-ups and Brewhouse meet-ups (yum, that place rocked!) and other meetings, all in Indianapolis, for I live over a hundred miles south of the City and can't attend those. When the Bloomington conference was announced, I was embarrassingly ecstatic! The people I had met at the larger actual BlogIndiana conference last summer made such a positive impression on me, and I wanted… Continue

The man scarf

I am not going to write today about the hype concerning Apple's big product announcement yesterday. Nor am I going to talk about how shiny and pretty it looks, how thin and light it is or even what it is capable of doing.
What I am going to write about instead is the name Apple chose for this beautiful new device... the iPad.
For a second, when I first heard the name while watching the live stream of the event on the Internet, I thought it was a… Continue

DO NOT USE CHLORINE BLEACH TO CLEAN UP OR KILL MOLD
Do NOT use Chlorine bleach to kill mold or disinfect moldy areas. It is
not an effective or long lasting killer of mold and mold spores. Bleach
is good only for changing the color of the mold and watering the roots
of the mold.
CHLORINE BLEACH IS INEFFECTIVE IN KILLING MOLD FOR THESE
(1) The object to killing mold is to kill its “roots”. Mold… Continue
