The lightbulb came on and now I’m eating organic.

Filed under: Uncategorized — teddytowncrier @ 1:01 pm


My formal education is agriculture and know a bit about food production whether it’s walking around or planted and it’s long been a niggling concern that I’m eating food that is grown in soil which has been drenched in poisons for the last 50 years.

I do recall that the potatoes we collected from the spot in the field where the barnyard manure had been stockpiled tasted much better than those from the rest of the field.

Recently I learned that organically grown tomatoes had 50% more Lycopine and 100% more anti-oxidants than non-organic.

Genetically modified foods (GM Foods) are also a niggling concern and when I discovered that some species had been modified to create their own pest control which required less chemicals to be sprayed on crops to control pests; … The bells began to ring.

Now came the Eureka moment ….. These poisons are now inside the crop and I’m eating them!

Today’s food is not produced for nutrition and taste! … It’s grown for yield, shipping tolerance and shelf life.

The time has come for me to bite the bullet, travel a little further and pay a little more for my foods. … I’m going organic.

You may wish to research “Organic designation” as it applies to your area since there is more than one standard for “Organic” certification. More

Clearing the cobwebs about Social Media.

Filed under: Uncategorized — teddytowncrier @ 3:12 pm

This isn’t another another tirade about how fabulous Twitter is except to say; When I see leaders like Queen Rania of Jordan, Sir Richard Branson, Wholeearth Foods, Comcast and even Joel’s hot dog stand using Twitter to smooth their journey & stuff their coffers; … I’m listening.

While talking heads are blathering and the press hacks reporting how many more work places are banning Social Media.   Managers who “Get it” are quietly paying a pimply faced geek $1,500 each week to blow their trumpet and are romping home to victory.

This movie does the best job I’ve ever seen for blowing away the cobwebs about Social Media.

Enjoy.

Feature rich toolbox for turning the tables on Twitter overwhelm.

Filed under: Uncategorized — teddytowncrier @ 6:58 pm

As our business progresses; It’s always nice to discover folks like our musings well enough to join our FriendForce (AKA Followers). but reading ten thousand short messages each day can easily gobble our day and soon take the edge off the enjoyment. …. Twitter doesn’t have to become our master.

Here’s an informative video I discovered which shows us how to not only; Schedule our messages to hit the high readership times but also create a short list of folks whose work we do wish to keep an eye on.

Already regularly using a few features of this really powerful tool; I soon expect to be using a few more discovered in this video.

I strongly suggest you also enroll socialoomph.com in your Marketing Army. …. (Formerly Tweetlater).

How My Biggest Consulting Fee dropped out of the blue.

Filed under: Uncategorized — teddytowncrier @ 12:23 pm

Since deciding to explore the possibilities of using the internet to expand my circle;   I’m fortunate to be extra blessed with a few special, new friends

Lamar Jon Morgan is one of them and as those who know him will agree;   Lamar is one of the most innovative and generous in our circle.  Whenever there is a possibility …. Lamar quickly puts the parties in direct contact without even a hint of requiring any fee for the introduction.

So when he came knocking and was requesting a few marketing ideas for Elaine Marie’s N. CA. Spirit Lake Soul Healing Retreat , I didn’t hesitate and was soon chatting to Elaine.

Since Lamar had done me a few favours;   I advised Elaine that I would be waiving my fee and there would be no charge for this consultation.

Elaine wouldn’t hear of it and insisted I be her guest at her Luxury Hawaii Rental Properties. ….. After thanking her;   I mentioned that I would likely be accepting her generous offer as soon as I had someone to share the enjoyment with.

Elaine had an answer for that too and proceeded to raphsodize about one of her friends, Dee.  (Not her real name).

After ascertaining that the Dee was genuinely single and not seeking a Canadian anything to marry and obtain citizenship through;   I gave the OK and next day a note arrived in my mail.

Dee turned out to be an effervescent California transplant with fascinating stories and we shared an hour and a half exploring, got along splendidly and quickly discovered we had many similar philosophies and tastes.  When she mentioned that she had just returned from The Burning Man Festival; I immediately gave her 2 more stars since Burning Man is on my must visit list.

Dee is a delightful lady and if she were just a tad closer;   We’d certainly be cooking together this weekend and maybe even have wine from a bottle with a real cork in it.    Looks as though it may have to wait until Hawaii.

Now that’s what I call a consulting fee.

What started out as a supporting gesture …. Turned out to be compensation far in excess of what I would dare to charge.

Thanks again, Lamar, for being my friend and for your un-stinting generosity and thoughfulness.     

Moral of this story. …. Take the opportunity to give some-one a leg up without concern for any payment.    You will be repaid far more handsomely than ever imagined.
