Days With My Father

Click the photograph to go to the site.

That heading's kind of misleading - it's not actually me and my Dad, it's a man by the name of Phillip Toledano and his photographic record of his father before he passed away.

Before you think "Ugh - how morbid", I have to say it is one of the most heart-warming, touching and yet wryly humorous sites I have ever seen.

The photography is exquisite - and the words sit perfectly.

I'd say enjoy - but somehow that doesn't seem quite right.  So just have a look.  I guarantee you will be touched.

The Definitive Guide to Marketing

The internet is full of serious hints and tips on marketing your product, advertising your product and generally getting your product (or your brand) "out there".

So that you can make the most of all the good advice available, I would like to offer a glossary of advertising terms.

This will clear up any confusion ...

You're a woman and you see a handsome man at a party.
You go up to him and say, "I'm fantastic in bed."
That's Direct Marketing.

You're at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome man.
One of your friends goes up to him and pointing at you says, "She's fantastic in bed."
That's Advertising..

You see a handsome man at a party.
You go up to him and get his telephone number.
The next day you call and say, "Hi, I'm fantastic in bed."
That's Telemarketing.

You see a man at a party, you straighten your dress.
You walk up to him and pour him a drink.
You say, "May I," and reach up to straighten his tie, brushing your breast lightly against his arm...
And then say, "By the way, I'm fantastic in bed."
That's Public Relations.

You're at a party and see a handsome man.
He walks up to you and says, I hear you're fantastic in bed."
That's Brand Recognition.

You're at a party and see a handsome man.
He fancies you, but you talk him into going home with your friend.
That's a Sales Representation.

Your friend can't satisfy him so she calls you.
That's Technical Support.

You're on your way to a party when you realize that there could be handsome
men in all these houses you're passing. So you climb onto the roof of
one situated towards the centre and shout at the top of your lungs, "I'm fantastic in bed!"
That's Junk Mail.

Tee-ming with Stuff!

Busy week in the world of Cathie Tees this week! 

I was lucky enough to have my second TeeCraze.com feature with Some Days ... the first being my Music Machines entry - Evolution.

Today I found out that my Scribble shirt was featured on the Redbubble homepage yesterday and I missed it - thanks to RB member Sanne for the little screen dump!!
