This thread will be four to five posts long and will focus on marketing with occasional forays into related topics. Know now that I don’t think I’m qualified to write on such. Read my LinkedIn profile and you’ll see that lots of others consider me extremely qualified; I’ve written peer reviewed articles on marketing, published books on marketing, created marketing technologies, developed marketing strategies for recognizable brands, …
But I know my limits. I’m not qualified.
Then again, nobody who claims they are is.

Pat Crumpler – Romance Among the Stars, Fins, Feathers, Galactic Detectives and more

You’ve never had an intelligent insectoid as an advisor? You’re missing out…

Pat Crumpler Dishes on Vivian WexlerHello all and welcome to our continuing series of author interviews.

Today’s guest is Pat Crumpler, a triple threat creative who’s elementals are Earth and Water as she loves the mountains and the oceans, something reflected in her three book FINS AND FABLES series, no doubt.

I’d like everyone to stand up and give Pat Crumpler a big round of applause for taking part in our exciting adventure.

Beryl the Rabbit

What’s up, Two-Legger?

Our menagerie continues to grow.

Or their menagerie continues to grow. It depends on one’s point of view…

Anyway, meet Beryl The Rabbit (note that it is “Rabbit”, not “Bunny”. He scoffed at “Bunny”). Beryl showed up about a week ago, sitting calmly in our backyard, muching clover and other assorted greenleaf delicacies. We brought out some carrots. They were inspected then ignored.

Bugs this is not.

I believe we also have a Berylia out back. Few rabbits exist solo in the wild and it’s obvious Beryl has a warren by his (or their) comings and goings.

There’s also speculation that Beryl may be young. Years ago we had a rabbit hop through and you’d’ve sworn it was Harvey based on its size. I kept waiting for Jimmy Stewart to come through and offer me a martini (sorry, I’m a Scotch drinker).

Regarding size, the second video shows Beryl being occulted by Webster, one of our many squirrels.

Bob Zaslow – Shakespeare Rap

Yo Yo Yo I’m Prince Hamlet! Gotta problem wi’ that?

Shakespeare Rapper Bob ZaslowHello all and welcome to our continuing series of author interviews.

Bob has many talents and won many awards. Perhaps the biggest question is “How does a suburban white guy make The Bard urbanghettolastic?” and asking that question is a great demonstration of how out of touch I am.

I’d like everyone to stand up and give Bob Zaslow a big round of applause for taking part in our exciting adventure.
