Potato Chip Sandwich

This site is all about cooking like a man. Men cook in crock pots, George Foreman grills, Fry Daddy's,  counter rotisseries, smokers, grills, Coleman grills and firewood if nothing else is available. We can cook. And we don't need much of a recipe to do it. We follow one simple rule.  If it don't taste good...add something.  Could be salt... could be sugar. As far as I know it may need some vinegar.
We can't tell you what that something is until I taste it. We're men dammit. We don't need no stinkin instructions.

Pearl Fryar Topiary

Pearl Fryar's Topiary is simply a GREAT place to visit. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something out of the ordinary.  Cheryl and I stopped by on our way back from Maine.  He was a very genuine artist.  You could tell by the way he talked about his work, it really is his passion.  We learned about Pearl on a GPTV program.  You can order the disk from his website. Once you watch it, you'll want to vist there as well.  I've embedded a slide show below! I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Using Social Sub Domains

Some people call Location, Location, Location the three most important decisions to make in business. Domains are your 'Location' on the Internet. But this isn’t the same old story about “vanity domains”. It’s about being Human with your Big Ideas.

Let’s Dive In With A Quick Question.

How do you get to the website of your insurance agent? What about your doctor? Still don’t know? OK, Let’s do an easy one. What’s the URL to YOUR blog? What about your email? Twitter, Facebook, Etsy, Pinterest, LinkedIn, FourSquare, Instagram and GooglePlus addresses? If you stumble, stutter and mumble something along the lines of ‘h-tee-tee-pee-colon-front-slash-front-slash-dubya-dubya-dubya-dot studmuffin5876-dot-where-the-heck-am-I-dot-com’ you need to move. Or at least admit that you can’t tell anybody where you live.

FourSquare Big Idea - The Follow Up

FourSquare is a location based game. Players use the application to check in when they visit a location. (In the game, the location is referred to as a venue.)  I wrote an article on how you would use it earlier. The object of the game is to be the person who checks in the most at a location. This makes you the 'mayor' of the location. Players leave 'tips' for other players to read. They leave good and bad tips about their experiences at that location. Although this example is about a restaurant, venues are on all types of businesses. You already have a venue, but you may not know it.  All of them have Big Deals waiting to be discovered.

How Would You Use FourSquare?

     If you own a small business and you're not using FourSquare, you should close up now. Save yourself the pain of losing it all while working 70 hour weeks. All you're doing is fighting something that is going to happen. With you or without you, people are going to play location based games.

That's Not What I'm Saying

     If you think that I'm suggesting that FourSquare can save your business, your missing the point. But, on the other hand....I am. With the right specials and call to actions, your business could be the most popular venue in your city. Everybody who is playing would be scrambling to become your mayor.  And it would cost you a lot less than regular advertising.
