Another week...

Whether you had the day off yesterday or worked, we are now upon another week and closer to Thanksgiving and the holiday season.  I can't believe all the articles I am seeing now about Black Friday and Cyber Monday...and then there are the stores that will now be open on Thanksgiving Day.  I don't know about you, but Thanksgiving Day is a day all about Family...not shopping so you won't catch me out.  I think everyone should veto the stores open that day, but I realize how bargain hungry we have all gotten.

I work with my business almost every day of the year including weekends as that's what it takes.  Oh yes, I do have my play time, but I owe it to my clients to help them grow their business however they can and get them noticed.  So if you are in need of a social media and public relations firm, contact me as we can't be beat for our service and our pricing is very competitive.  Let us put you in the spotlight.

And on another note, I am over all the celebrities doing actually crazy and ironic things to be noticed.  I guess that is all a part of the game, but I am not buying into it at all.  I watched DWTS last night and America, are you crazy keeping Bill.  While we all know this is a popularity contest, you let someone with talent go to keep a stiff ole guy who has no chance of winning, or does he.  I am also over it as that should have never happened.  If I was Bill, I would have stepped down as he was as in shock, just like the judges were that he was staying.  And bravo to Jack Osborne, he has really come a long way and I am quite impressed.

Well, on to another day with appointments and helping my clients get noticed.  What have you done for your clients lately?  Have a great week !

Okay, it's been since July I have written.  Why do I find it so hard to Blog?  I will say it once again, I will try to do better as I really do have alot to say...My company is doing very well but there is always room for more.  I didn't realize there were so many people out there that are in need of someone to take care of their social media for them and all of their press.  If you know of anyone in need of our services, please send them my way or direct them to our website at www.kneticgroup.com to contact us.  We may be looking for someone to join our team if we keep getting accounts which is great.  Maybe only a part time gig at first but could develop into more...wishful thinking on my part. 

So tell me what you think of our banks these days?  I have had some interesting and enlightening experiences lately with banks and not to mention any names, I am still taking it all in.  It seem while they are highly regulated, they still can pretty much do what they want to with your money...I think for now I will leave it at that.

And my friends at Diego's have a new opening date for their restaurant in Gladstone after some major set backs.  It is scheduled to open Friday December 6th.  Anyone want to have a cocktail with me there that night as surely going to be a "grand" opening and I have high expectations which they have assured me they will be meeting.

Three weeks from today...Thanksgiving and then the dreaded Black Friday.  I will be staying in no matter how great the bargains are as I really don't need it that bad.  Besides, my Pinot Nior will be calling me later that day.

Have a good one everyone and I will try, no promises to be better about Blogging.  Who knows, if I try I might do it...

Well here we go again.  I haven't written in a couple months and as you all know, it is not because I do not have anything to say.  Today however, I was very excited to get a sneak peek at a new restaurant that is opening up North.  Great new concept and it is going to look very sleek inside.  I will be opening maybe second week of August and think it will be a fabulous addition to the Northland. 

On another note, what is up with this hot weather.  My A/C just keeps running and I am sure when I see the electric bill I will be running out of money...lol.  I had a slight episode of heat exhaustion the past couple of days.  I overdid it on Sunday as painted outside for 4 1/2 hours and then laid by the pool for an hour and a half...what was I thinking.  Terri was good though and stopped and got me some Gatorade for the electrolights to charge me back up. 

Busy day tomorrow with a couple more proposals.  It is amazing how many people are just now realizing the impact that social media can have on their business.  I was speaking with someone today in fact that said they did not realize the impact period social media could have until they saw some of the recent trial and pleadings...and just yesterday watch a television show one of the girls on the show was getting her cell phone taken away and was freaking as she was only 2 posts away from 900 pictures on Instagram...wow...
Happy Thursday early to everyone...

So great having Taylor home, but I am not sure how much more I can eat.  Of course we have to go to all of her favorites and Terri is cooking up a storm of the requested dishes, so let's eat.   Carmen's Cafe, Cascone's, Pizza Shoppe, Los Corales, not to mention fajitas on the grill, of course both chicken and beef, beef and noodles, and much much more.

And then today, it is in the 30's and snowing and just yesterday, I was mowing the lawn with my shirt off in the 70's.  This weather has got to straighten out.

And on the business front, Knetic Group is launching a whole new series of business products.  We are busy....

Wow the week is just rolling by.  I was surprised by my cousin from Minnesota visiting the past couple of days and good to see him.  However think he is the one responsible for bringing this weather as it snowed there yesterday.  And I just bought all my plants on Sunday for the deck...what's up with that?  We went out with him last evening to 54th Street and they have a great happy hour, not only on cocktails, but all full size appetizers are only $4.99 and their sliders are great and only $1.50 each.  We were stuffed.

The youngest is getting ready to come home Thursday for a week.  Haven't seen her since Christmas so will be happy to have her home for a while.  Celebrating her birthday with the fam and friends.  She has already given Mom several of her favorite dishes she wants while she is here and given Dad a few of her favorite restaurants, so looks like a lot of eating and drinking.

On another note, I have to vent about Home Depot.  I was looking for a specific products and had already been to several stores to no avail and gone home see where I might call instead of running around to find it.  I  called Home Depot and sure enough they said they carried it and asked them if they had it in stock.  Yes, sure do.  So make a trip to Home Depot only to find out that they never checked the shelve, looked it up on computer and it showed they had it in stock, but in reality they had none.  When I asked the clerk on the floor about it and explained the situation, he was very apologetic and said evidently just a computer error.
What wonderful customer service that the person I spoke with originally was too lazy to go look.  Not to mention their phone system, after navigating or not my way thru their automated process, bring cut off twice, put on hold one time for 8 minutes (I like to see how long it takes) and hanging up and saying "do not put me on hold" before I got the wrong information.  No wonder I never see that many people at Home Depot anymore since Lowe's opened....ummmm.

Well, got my coat out of the closet still today and hopefully will be putting it back in for good after today.  Happy Wednesday everyone and stay warm...

Wow, what an action packed weekend and it's not over yet.  Dinner at All Star Pizza in the old Tullaries on 64th Street.  If you have never eaten there, definitely great pizza in their wood fired oven and the wings, some of the best we've ever had.  Ate with some friend and of course a cocktail or two.  A good time was definitely had by all and our server Paige, out of this world.  Now the two owners of the place in my opinion, they need some lessons in customer service.  They really have no business in running a restaurant as they tend to ignore their guests unless it is someone they know personally and then, oh it is ridiculous, but the staff and the food make up for their short comings. 

Yard work yesterday and trying to get lawn in shape.  It just is not doing as well this year as in past, but we're working on that.  And with all the rain they are predicting this week, more grass seed and fertilizer down.  Of course, as my neighbor reminded me yesterday, they more you put into it, the more I have to mow...lol

And last night, dinner with some friends at Port Fonda.  We have heard nothing but great things about it and not your typical Mexican cuisine...and that is it.  We tried a variety of appetizers and dishes, all excellent.  But don't go expecting the typical tacos, burritos or whatever as it is not going to happen.  We ordered a pitcher of house Margaritas which turned out to be a litre and much to my surprise when the check came...$36...wow!  That was a surprise.  I am certainly glad I didn't upgrade to the supreme Margaritas...Definitely worth going to and we will be back.  Just a great fun place, but if you go on Friday or Saturday, make reservations...

Okay, Sunday morning, a bit lazy, but still alittle more work outdoors...so more later...

Wow, what is it with this blog, I just can't seem to get it to the top of my list, and keep saying I am, so making a concentrated effort starting today.  Mowed lawn today for the first time of the season as suppose to rain rest of week...blah...

Went to Atrium's to visit Terri's aunt this afternoon, 96 and still doing well.  Also found out my mother had a friend living there and tried to see her a couple times and missed her and finally caught up with her today.  First thing she told me is that I looked exactly like my father.  I haven't seen her in at least 25 years...so nice to catch up with her and know she enjoyed the visit also.

Now have you ever listed anything on eBay?  I have been listing things for the past two days.  My first experience.  Wow, finally think I am getting the hang of it.  Trying to de-clutter and get rid of things we don't need.  So if you need something, ask me as probably have it. 

Had dinner last night at El Patron with friends.  Excellent as usual.  If you haven't been there, definitely give it a try.  Packed as usual but they do take reservations.

Well tomorrow is tax day...guess I will write some checks.  Yes, waiting until the last minute.  How about you?
