Do Not Click Here Please: PRIVATE POST - 10/25/07 12:59 PM
If you clicked on this post, than I can only assume that you are a member of my super-secret club. Clearly, those who are not in my club should know better than to have clicked their way here. Shame! The title clearly indicates that you were not supposed to click here. No, I haven't lost my mind and of course-- I hate to admit this-- but there is no super-secret club.

I Did A Bad Thing Today - 10/24/07 06:33 PM
This morning, my husband Michael and I had breakfast at one of the local greasy spoons. At the booth next to ours, there were two teenagers. I was facing them, my husband had his back to them. The one that was facing me wore very dark, but sporty, sunglasses the entire time he ate. Like typical teenagers, there was a lot of joking and carrying on while they ate breakfast. Anyway, not that I consider myself a bastion of etiquette-- I found it rather rude that this "kid" would sit in a restaurant and eat with his sunglasses on. Was he (116 comments)
Become a Famous Expert and Crush Your Competition - 10/14/07 12:32 PM
This is probably the best marketing tip I will ever post. In fact, I even hesitate to post it, because it's just so darn good...I wouldn't want my competition using it. Fortunately, this takes a lot of hard work and time, and I figure only one or two people who read this will actually do it. Write a Book About Real Estate and advertise yourself as "the author of Winning Big with Arizona Real Estate." Of course, insert your own state in the title. Or make up a better title. You get the point! It's really not as hard as it (83 comments)
Create Your Own Font! Win Friends, Impress Clients! - 10/07/07 12:28 AM
I just read a post by Jeff Turner a few minutes ago. While Jeff's writing is always good, the thing that really caught my eye was a graphic he created. (Digital photography and art is just one of Jeff's many talents.) Anyway, Jeff had a graphic that had some printing on it and it really caught my eye, because it wasn't your standard "Times New Roman" or "Arial" font. Isn't everyone sick of reading the same old fonts day after day? (Like this blog-- "Arial"-- yuck.) Jeff's font just looked like really cool handwriting. The picture of "Tom's Handwriting" above, is (54 comments)
A Must-Read for Microsoft Outlook Users - 10/05/07 03:07 PM
This is a particularly embarassing post for me to write. I should have known better. I can't believe the mess I am in. I went to business school; my major was Management Information Systems or M.I.S. This is your basic business management degree, with a whole bunch of business-related computer courses thrown in. In other words, I can't write video game code, but I can manage a business using computers to full efficiency. At least, that's what I am supposed to be qualified for. So that's why this post is particularly embarassing. This is a post about backing things up. Most of you are going (76 comments)
