Comments Off on Onyx Media Belgium – how NOT to do marketing

Okay, time for another rant about really, really annoying marketing. Once again it is about idiots who think that annoying someone with multiple emails will mean that one will do business with them. Shame on you Onyx Media Belgium! Not only have you been sending multiple emails to me, but you are sending these emails […]

Real estate done right

July 21, 2021

So last week was my rant about aggressive real estate agents. This week is about an agent who does things right. I want to give a shout out to Michael McQuillan, a local real estate agent with Coldwell Banker. In full disclosure, I grew up with Mike and am friends with him on Facebook. I […]

QUICK NOTE: I’m writing this week, but never fear. Mr. Ken still has a few blog posts up his sleeve, so he will be back. The housing market here in Massachusetts is hot, to say the least. There is a lot of pent up demand, but not a lot of inventory on the market. So, […]

Normally I’m a “live and let live” type of gal. But something happened last weekend that I just can’t forget. I’m in my exercise room, deep into my yoga practice and enjoying the beautiful scenery of Greece. All of a sudden I hear this loud pounding on our side door. Now normally I would ignore […]

Yes, I live in New England and I am proud of that fact. Yes, I am proud of our sports teams, but I don’t live and breathe sports. As the annual Super Bowl was upon us and I was not looking forward to suffering through, er sitting through another game of 300 pound men jumping […]

Blah, blah, blah. I don’t like football. There is just something very weird about 300 pound men jumping on top of each other. And for this they get paid millions of dollars a year! I just don’t get it. This dates back to my junior high days when I was a cheerleader. We had a […]

Awful marketing

What ever happened to honesty and integrity? I know, I know, I am asking a rhetorical question, but two recent incidents really got me thinking. By now, you all must have heard of the Equifax data breach. At least 143 million names, birthdates and social security numbers were stolen by hackers getting into Equifax. Now […]

I spent my younger years baking in the sun. What could be better than being blonde and tanned? Now I am paying the price with several bouts of skin cancer. So now, I am meticulous about wearing sunscreen, even in the winter. I especially like Coppertone Water Babies sunscreen; it works the best. I was […]

Here are some main points from the first keynote talk, “Innovation in Technology” by Brian David Johnson, Futurist and Principal Engineer at Intel. We can turn anything […]
