Fall Is In The Air! What Does That Mean? FOOTBALL SEASON

I just hate it! To make matters worse hubby is home on sick leave due to his own football injury tossing the dogs toy football and trying to beat the dog across the yard for it, needless to say those groin muscles will be out of commission for a while.

Talking Your Laptop for a Walk

Sometimes it really does seem like wireless is being offered everywhere.

Start OF NFL Football Season Causes Mass Exodus Of Customers

I don't believe there is any doubt left in anyone's mind of the extra value you get over cable TV (yes even digital) when you subscribe to Satellite after you get a cable bill charging $45.00 dollars for 70 some non premium basic channels. They even charge for the over the air free advertiser supported local broadcast tier and then they don't give you all that you are capable of receiving, only about half in my area.

Top 10 Telephone Blunders in Everyday Business

As youngsters, many of us were taught basic telephone etiquette. These lessons taught us the basic components of conducting a phone conversation - politeness, attentiveness, respect, and common courtesy. Unfortunately, it seems these lessons have been forgotten by many of today’s companies. For many, the philosophy seems to say that it’s easier to forgo these practices and, instead, choose to deal with the customer service consequences later.

Liquor Control System

The scene is typical. You walk into your favorite tavern, peer through the smoke filled room and saddle on up to the bar. You ask the bartender for a Jack Daniels. He pours your glass about three quarters of the way full. "Don't cheat me Joe." you say firmly. The bartender finishes filling your shot glass. You thank him, take the shot, put your money on the bar and go about enjoying the atmosphere. Sound familiar? Well this is the scene that has played out in bars, taverns, and night clubs ...
