david saks: Why I Don't Use Facebook, MySpace or Twitter, Never Have, Never Will ! - 05/30/14 10:27 AM

Facebook is a dangerous, out-of-control social networking environment full of voyeurs, cretins and lurkers looking for indecent relations and a way to anonymously vent hatred.
It includes many less-than-savvy commerce-concerned users trying to get rankings in Bing, Google or other search engines through the application of fast meta tag recognition, which, by the way, is a short cut and lazy dogs way out of some well-defined hard work and effort. 
I'd absolutely, positively recommend that anyone with common sense avoid these social networks like the plague. 
The Facebook icon on any page is a warning that there's another schmoe lurking in cyberville.
I want the "F" icon, Floogle, Schmoogle, Google, or any other … (10 comments)

Here's a classic from Foreigner and Lou Gramm.
I had breakfast with Lou a few years ago while he was visiting.
His voice was never better than it is in this great song.

david saks: Kemmons Wilson & Me - 04/29/14 03:40 PM
                                
I was sitting here sipping some iced tea and thinking about Kemmons Wilson, you know, the man who started out with a popcorn stand in front of the theater when he he was a kid and went on to become the founder of Holiday Inns in 1953. I was a year old then.
I grew up hearing about Kemmons and his accomplishments, almost daily as a child.
One of the greatest days of my life came when the phone rang, in 1990, and it was Kemmons. He called to congratulate me about a Memphis City Council honor I had just received. Kemmons asked me … (3 comments)

david saks: AR Film Review "Noah" - 04/08/14 12:58 AM
The movie "Noah" is two hours of monotonic dialogue, droning, moaning orchestral arrangements accompanying some of the most chintzy special effects ever produced.

If King James were alive he might have beheaded the producer and director in the Tower of London.
Save your money !

david saks: One of My Favorite Things About Springtime - 03/17/14 12:15 AM
I'll make this simple.
Nothing welcomes Springtime better than a box of Girl Scout Cookies.
My pantry's full of them.
I can't pass a Girl Scout Cookie kiosk without buying a box.
Do.Si.Dos are my favorite.
And one of my favorite things about Spring.
Grab some !

david saks: Are You a Real Estate Agent or a Chauffeur ? (blast from the past) - 03/13/14 05:33 PM
(here's a blast from the past Nov., 2011)
 

 
Do your clients get a free ride and tour of the subdivision in your sedan on Sunday while their children are screaming and rubbing their chocolate-stained hands on the upholstery of the back seat of your car ?
 
Do you find yourself handing out brochures about lead based paint, buyer agency, inspections, disclosures, home warranties and other stuff as though you were dispensing tourist maps at a travel agency ?
 
Do customers and clients hang around your office wasting your time scarfing down the free pizza and bottled water while at the … (6 comments)
