The Twitter Revolution

Well, it has officially happened. Twitter has taken over the world. In the past week, I have had 10 friends join twitter who were anti-tweet before. Why the change? Why now? The Denver Post ran an article in the Sunday A&E section about Twitter – http://www.denverpost.com/entertainment/ci_11899588And on March 3rd they ran this Twitter article – http://www.denverpost.com/entertainment/ci_11826126Two articles about Twitter in less than two weeks!!!! Clearly, the press is jumping all over twitter and as it comes out that John Mayer is tweeting nasty about Jennifer Aniston during a concert or Shaq clearly......

G-d’s Grand Gestures

Or should I say Grand… like Grand Pas or Grand Pas d’action… meaning big or large step. A Grand Pas d’action is a large step that contributes to the story being told. I believe in G-d’s Grand Gestures, the Grand Pas d’action of G-d, only because I have first hand experience in them. They come at the crappiest times, putting me in the crappiest positions, and usually with crappy consequences. But the beauty of these, shall we call them, G3s is that there is always something better on the other side. Not......

Basil Rathbone… my hero

Okay, so I posted in February how I am in love with Sherlock Holmes and recently ordered some old DVDs (Rathbone and Bruce from the 40’s and Jeremy Brett from the 80’s). Well, I got them… finally! 🙂 As luck would have it, my schedule didn’t allow a Sherlock Holmes weekend and there were technical difficulties… (I need another surge protector for my living room tv. The Comcast guy didn’t tell me he unplugged my dvd player to plug in the cable box, grrrr.) BUT I have snuck a few episodes in......

BIRTHDAY MONTH!!!

Okay! I think that a birthday is more than just a day. I like to celebrate a birthday month. Not for presents or anything but it just gives me a reason to be excited all month. So my birthday is March 19… that is 19 full days of joy (you can still celebrate afterwards but you know that the momentum lags a bit after a few days). But a birthday is also like a new beginning, a new year for your soul/body/mind. Isn’t it interesting, as Jews we give ourselves so many......

Why I feed my addiction to Facebook and how it made me better at my job.

Okay, I don’t have an addictive personality BUT I am totally easy prey when it comes to social networking. I don’t know why. I never got addicted to smoking or drinking or anything… except social networking. I mean to the point where I check it on my phone at night in bed and tweet “Good morning, Tweeps” in the morning. On the surface, you may think that seems sick but it gets worse. I manage accounts all over the social networking world for various groups that I represent. That means that more......

Just when I thought it was safe…

So I posted yesterday about so-called “new media experts” and I stand by what I said but my butt was totally saved today but an SEO expert and I am feeling some remorse. His website is http://www.ronmedlin.com and his name is (oddly enough ;-)) Ron. He walked me through optimizing our school website. All because I sent a twitter SOS! So, yes, the glut of “new media experts” still disturbs me but Ron Medlin gave me hope that there are really people out there with more knowledge than I on these subjects.......

Have you noticed that everyone is now an expert?

Maybe not… if you don’t live in the social networking/new media world, like I do. I noticed the glut of “new media experts” on twitter. Nearly all of my nearly 600 following/followers has some connection with social media/new media/etc. And everyone is an expert or offering workshops or chances to maximize my networking ability. Cool. I want to do that. I want to learn how to use Facebook and Twitter and Yelp and blogs to it’s highest capacity to do my job and promote my company… So I go to workshops… I’ve......

Broomfield Chamber Business After Hours and what I learned

It is HARD to get food donated in a recession but people are really nice and want to help. Restaurants change GMs like I change purses… In fact, one time, I called on a monday and got one guy and called the next day and got a new GM… grrreat! Beer is harder to get donated in a recession! (Come on people, keep drinking, the microbrews need your support!) Eldorado Water, Red Robin at Flatirons, California Pizza Kitchen at Flatirons mall, El Jimador on 84th and Huron, Old Chicago’s in Broomfield, and......

Ben and Jerry’s

Okay, I don’t want to post a ton of “funny things you get on email” here but this one is just too cool. I don’t know if it actually happened but these names are hilarious! Some of these are really creative! Ben & Jerry created “Yes Pecan!” ice cream flavor for Obama. For George W. they asked for suggestions from the public. Here are some of their favorite responses:– Grape Depression– The Housing Crunch– Abu Grape– Cluster Fudge– Nut’n Accomplished– Good Riddance You Lousy Motherfucker… Swirl– Iraqi Road– Chock ‘n Awe– WireTapioca–......
