The Niche Landing Page
The niche market that you want to be in should also have it once niche landing page. The more you focus, the more your customer is apt to buy. There are a number of steps which can be done to ensure this happens. The article goes into a few AND also if you need help narrowing to that niche I am there to help also.

Good of the Order
You probably knew this, or it made sense, but being around water is really good therapy for our brains and general well being. A great article that goes into some depth on why this is an important matter and we should consider it when moving or just deciding on vacations or even our permanent home.

JPG v RAW (again)
At some point this debate will be over. Right? Sigh, I doubt it, especially as new sites, apps and more come about with the abilities to read ‘photo’ files. Also all the uses of these files, or maybe better said the ‘diminished’ use or need for higher and higher resolution. There’s a debate in itself. Enjoy the read

Good for the Order!

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.

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

Gucci and Web3

Gucci is no stranger to the influencer world of fashion, and so if anyone thought that any setbacks that may have been in the media in the past week or month was some interruption it was is not. 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.

Thanks to for the Gucci Photo.

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.
