Bubble Wrap, Still with Us

Ever wonder who in the heck came up with all those cushy plastic bubble that prevent damage in tossed around package? Well wonder no more the history is in the article here. I wonder if they wrapped us lots of it if we would just bounce, no need for chute.

Ice Cream is a Food Group, Vanilla Today

I have always believed that ice cream is a food group, yes food group. And while vanilla ice cream is not in my favorite there are versions I do like, and sometimes will buy. The question is which vanilla flavor do you like most, or have even tried?

You can never add too much garlic, or eat too much ice cream.

Fast Food Day, Junk Food Day

We all are guilty of consuming various foods which are for all matter easy to get and certainly tasty in many ways. In fact some of the best often stirs debate on which place has the best. Many surveys ask where the best burger, fries, milkshakes, chilli and others. And those results are sought by all the big players in this market. So let’s celebrate the day and go out and have one or two or three of these items. And please share where and what you got.

Define value, what is Value?

A father said to his daughter “You have graduated with honors, here is a Jeep I bought many years ago. It is pretty old now. But before I give it to you, take it to the used car lot downtown and tell them I want to sell it and see how much they offer you for it.”

The daughter went to the used car lot, returned to her father and said, “They offered me $1,000 because the said it looks pretty worn out.”

The father said, now “Take it to the pawn shop.” The daughter went to the pawn shop, returned to her father and said,”The pawn shop offered only $100 because it is an old Jeep.”

The father asked his daughter to go to a Jeep club now and show them the Jeep. The daughter then took the Jeep to the club, returned and told her father,” Some people in the club offered $100,000 for it because “it’s an iconic Jeep and sought by many collectors.”

Now the father said this to his daughter, “The right place values you the right way,” If you are not valued, do not be angry, it means you are in the wrong place. Those who know your value are those who appreciate you……Never stay in a place where no one sees your value.

Are You Being Followed by an App?

Have you ever wondered when you download an App if it follows you even if you are not using it? Apparently the Tim Horton’s Coffee App did, does just that. The Canadian authorities investigated and found violation of the law pertaining to just that. I chuckled at the subtitle, ““Inappropriate form of surveillance”.

All of this does bring into my mind how accurate is that, “only when in use”, when asked by most apps which need a location when used. It is a question that has been asked for many years. Many of us turn off any tracking, if for no better reason than it drains the battery. And that is silly if it is from a dormant app. Lesson? Install less apps, especially ones that require locations.

There is more details here in the story.

Gucci, Fashion

They will be rolling out some fantastic things in the new Web3 world. We can’t wait to see the Metaverse of sorts, the 3D land of Gucci.

The article covers some of the drama, but mainly the focus on is business and how we will be seeing more Gucci. And if anyone should know about these folks it is the folks at Rose Law Group.

A Trip Down SF in 1906!

Amazing the old days. Things to look for: Only suits and professional looks, cars and trolleys and horses all existing on the same route, people crossing all over the place, pretty good pace everyone has in their direction they head, maybe a wrong wayer, and a few more.

The Envelope

I was purussing my photos on me and celebs and others I have met over the years. The best ones were way back at the Phoenix Open, yes the Phoenix Open before all the throngs of people up at TPC. There is an intersection of like two tees and, two greens where if you waited patiently you could get photos with all willing celebs playing in the Pro-AM. There were also a few other spots that after a couple of years of walking around you knew the spots.

On this occasion I got to meet Jack McKay famous for envelopes. Who knew there were so many kinds and shapes. Well Jack did and way back realize the need for not only sizes but getting them to busiesses quickly as at that time it was the only way to communicate with anyone.

I recall the discussion that email would kill the the letter, the bill and this the envelope. No one will send anything physically. Well if you Google envelope you will see that the variety continues! And the envelope has not “spam filter” when you think about it, only a cost factor. Which make you think about all those that we never open and toss into the blue can right away, a waste of money for whoever sent it.
