Yesterday, I received the bring back your book email from Jessamine County Library. Nate and Crystal were making brownies and Sam was down for his nap, so before the UK vs. Baylor game I decided to do so.
History class was not one of my favorite subjects in jr. high or high school. To be totally honest I straight up didn't like it at all. My 9th grade history teacher had 5 chalk boards and all we did was take notes from those 5 chalk boards. At the beginning of class he'd start writing and wouldn't stop till just a few minutes before the bell would ring.
Looking back now I wish I'd put more time in to learning what he was trying to teach rather than just write notes.
Oh, back to the library.
So, I returned my book and then went to the information desk and asked did they have any older newspapers on record. The information lady's eye's lit up, and she hopped up and said,"We sure do they're right back here."
She led me to the microfilm machine. There were some films that went back to the early 1800's. I browsed through a 1918 film and found an advertisement for Glass' Cash Store.
I don't know why I find this interesting, but do. Have a good monday.

a pinball machine.
I'm 33 and it's funny how you can remember how some things from way back and others that you can't remember at all, like did I switch the laundry over.
When I went to Kermit Jr. High School,1990-1993, there was a Giovanni's next to the school. Almost every day began there, at Giovanni's. Mom would usually drop me off there to meet my friends and the only time she didn't was when I was running late.
There are two things that really stand out from the other Giovanni's memories. The first one is, one of my friends used to take the chocolate off a Kit Kat bar because she didn't like chocolate.
The Second One is, THE WHIRLWIND!!!! My friends and I would play that pinball machine over and over. Giovanni's wouldn't turn the games on in the morning. In the evening when school would let out, I can remember running out the school's side door and racing across the street to Giovanni's to see who got to the pinball machine first.
Last week was the first time I visited the Nicholasville Giovanni's and I really liked it. They've been open for almost a year now and I'm not really sure why I waited so long to visit. I'll go back soon and probably a lot more if they get a get a pinball machine.

If you have ever read Purple Cow by Seth Goodin you'll totally understand.
I am not in the market in any way to buy a new vehicle now, but I'm ready to load the kids up and head out to Sutherland Chevrolet to see if there is one sitting on the lot. I don't know if it was the buzz of the souped up stunt car launching itself into the air, or the music. Maybe it's the thought of going to the gym and my five year old in the back sit hollering let's jump the tracks Dad. I can't really say why but I smiled the entire time I watched this video.
Two Thumbs up to the team behind this.

What marketing works best for your business?
In our last business meeting we discussed marketing tools. The meeting started with me placing stacks of cards in the middle of the table, and on those cards were different ways we can market our business.
I then asked everyone to pick two cards. After everyone made their choices, we then explained to the group why we use these tools and about how much it costs to market with them.
Here is a list of some of the tools that came up in discussion.
-Direct Mail, The Jessamine Journal, Smiley Pete Publishing, Cold Calling, Networking Groups, Business Cards and Appreciation Marketing.
Our Next Meeting
will be held Wednesday, Feb 8th at The Father's Cup Cafe, at 8:00 a.m.
The Nicholasville Group is a closed networking group. If you are interested in joining us or have any questions please feel free to contact Jody Moore.
This weekend I was reading the Homeseller, a Herald Leader insert on Sunday that I love, and ran across an advertisement that said," Smart Is The New Sexy". It was a 1/4 page ad and really didn't say what it was advertising. It just said, "Smart Is The New Sexy" and some really small font that was very hard to read. However it did have a qr code that was smaller than a nickel in the body of the ad. I got my i-phone and scanned the code and low and behold it took me to a website that was not mobile enabled.
This is something that just frosts my mug. If you are going to use a QR Code please send my phone to a mobile site or youtube video. Please use marketing tools wisely.
