Blog Your Blessing : Wish for a Friend


A Wish for a Friend

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—

Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

Joanna Krupa is Angel for PETA

Angel for Animals

The purpose of the advertisement is to encourage people to adopt animals from a shelter rather than buy a dog from a breeder, pet shop or puppy mill. If sex sells, than I am glad she uses her sexuality for a good cause.

Blog Your Blessing : Traveling


A blessing for those taking a journey
The love and affection of the angels be to you,
The love and affection of the saints be to you,
The love and affection of heaven be to you,
To guard and to cherish you.

May God shield you on every step,
May He aid you on every path,
And may He hold you safe on every slope,
On every hill and on every plain;
On earth and on sea until you are home again.

Ask.com for Answers to Questions

Ask.com has always been a slightly different type of search engine. Beginning with the butler Jeeves, through several transitions which did not improve market share, the latest rendition of Ask.com wants to reinvent the question and answer engine.

You will ask a question and the answers displayed will be ranked by algorithms, not by page rank or other SEO tools. In addition to traditional search search technology, the engine will tap into a network of people to provide answers in real time.

Ask Reimagines Search, Adds Relevance Algorithms, Real-Time Capabilities
The revamped engine required new sets of algorithms, such as question pattern-matching that can identify the type of question by its structure. The algorithm identifies a how question as having a different format than a when question. The when looks similar to data, while the how question looks similar to an exclamation,
So, we may have a search engine that actually answers the questions we have, regardless of keywords, paid insertions or PPC bids. This could signal the start of a improvement in search that goes far beyond the G@@gle.


Do Not Forget . . .

To give thanks!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday
(with or without Prozac;-)

Blog Your Blessing : Peace in Our Time

IMG_2058

At the base of the monument it says:
This is our cry. This is our prayer.
For building peace in the world.


The Children’s Peace Monument in Hiroshima is one of the world's most haunting memorials. The bronze statue of a girl holding a paper crane atop the memorial is the likeness of Sadako Sasaki. Sadako was two when the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Nine years later, she was diagnosed with leukemia. According to Japanese myth, if she folded 1000 paper cranes, she would be granted one wish. She died before getting her wish. If you wish to know how to fold a crane, please see this video on YouTube.

Similar stories, wishes and memorials proliferate. Below is a poem by A. Hikmet that was also a song sung by The Byrds. May we all pray for peace in our time.


I Come and Stand At Every Door

I come and stand at every door;
but no one hears my slient prayer.
I knock, and yet remain unseen . . .
For I am dead. For I am dead.

I'm only 7 although I died . . .
in Hiroshima long ago.
I'm 7 now, as I was then,
When children die, they do not grow.

My hair was scorched by swirling flame.
My eyes grew dim; my eyes grew blind.
Death came and turned my bones to dust,
And that was scattered by the wind . . .

I need no fruit, I need no rice.
I need no sweets, or even bread
I ask for nothing for myself:
for I am dead. For I am dead.

All that I ask is that for peace , , ,
(You fight today . . . you fight today)
So that children of this world,
May live and grow and laugh and play.

Time to Say Thanks


Just wanted to pause and think of the men and women all over the free world who have sacrificed their lives so that I might exist today. You are the true heroes of my story, my life, my children.

I also wanted to thank the young people that stand vigil today so that I might live free to die of old age. God bless you Bravehearts in the Middle East.


Blog Your Blessing : Hallowmas

The origin of Halloween began over 2,000 years ago with the Celtic priests or Druids. The Druids believed that Samhain (October 31), marked the end of the time of harvest, plenty and the end of summer and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, often associated with human death.

For Samhain, Druids built huge bonfires and wore costumes of animal heads and skins to keep the dead away. Soothsaying and sacrifices were the main activities of this night. When the morning of November 1 dawned, the villagers lit their hearth fires from the central bonfire to celebrate the beginning of a new year.'

Under Roman rule two celebrations–Feralia, commemorating the passing of the dead, and Pomona, for the Roman goddess of fruit and trees–were added to the celebration of Samhain.


In the seventh century, Pope Boniface IV designated November 1 as All Saints Day, a time to honor saints and martyrs. The celebration was also called All-hallows or All-Hallowmas. Samhain began to be known as All-hallows Eve and, eventually, Halloween.

In 1000 A.D., the church declared November 2 as All Souls Day, a day to honor the dead. The three celebrations–the eve of All Saints, All Saints Day and All Souls Day–became known as Hallowmas.

While the origin of Halloween is surrounded in myth and legend, Halloween remains, at least in the USA, a time of carnivals, trick or treat, costumes, pumpkins and mischief.

Wordless Wednesday

Cave Without a Name
Boerne, Texas

A little known cave outside of Boerne, Texas is called Cave Without a Name. It is a beautiful cave that is run by the family that own the land around it. The Texas Hill Country has many caves, both large and small.


GM : No Longer Like a Rock

I was not surprised to see that GM is failing to use the bailout bucks to turn the company around.

This time, there will be no Bob Seger to pull their fat from the fire. Like a Rock has been used to sell Chevy trucks for years. The way I heard it, Bob Seger did not want to have his song become an advertising tool. A young man who would be laid off if the automotive plant closed, went to Bob Seger and told his story. Like a Rock became a GM anthem.

Now GM is throwing money at advertising without planning it seems. You can read the entire story by clicking the link.

Marketing: Why GM's Advertising Has Failed to Impress - Advertising Age - News
. . .initial response post-bankruptcy was to launch a multimillion-dollar (GM-branded) TV and print ad blitz, entitled "Reinvention." Needless to say it was puzzling and short lived. Following that fiasco were new Buick ads featuring an L.A. "Fashionista." . . . Next up was another multimillion-dollar GM brand campaign featuring the new chairman, Ed Whitacre.
GM is not going to survive if they do not "young up" and start using social networks, mobile marketing and online advertising. They need to drop the print and TV ads or tie them into new media.



Where Do You Twitter ?


Did you know that 32 percent of Twitter users feel they spend too much time on Twitter, while 22 percent admit to writing twits they later regretted? Fortunately, only 16 percent report that they neglect activities to spend time on social media.

Social Media Study: Twitter While Driving

Twitter is used in cars, restaurants and restrooms, with 11 percent of Twitter users admitting to accessing Twitter while driving in the past 30 days, and 29 percent of Twitter users say they have twittered in the car in the past.

While Twitter was the variable of choice in this survey, texting is also a real problem in driving. My son's friend ran over the curb, over a fire hydrant, blew three tires and bent two rims because she was texting while driving.

Just Drive - Stay Alive - Twitter and Text Could Lead to Wrecks!

Blog Your Blessing : Blessing of the Animals

The Blessing of the Animals is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi and his love for all creatures. In many towns, there are processions of animals, from dogs and cats to hamsters and horses. The animals are led to churches for a special ceremony, complete with prayer.


Statue of St. Francis of Assisi

Blessing of the Animals

Blessed are you, Lord God, maker of all living creatures.
You called forth fish in the sea, birds in the air and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all of them his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless this pet.

By the power of your love, enable it to live according to your plan.
May we always praise you for all your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures!
Amen.


Dedicated to my sister Flo, who lost her baby dog last week.

Wave of Disaster Advertisement

Charities must be creative in soliciting donations. As disasters increase worldwide, people have become immune to calls for aid. Do you donate to disaster relief, animal rescue, cancer research, environmental causes or . . . ?

Cossette Media helped the Canadian Red Cross focus our attention on Indonesia, ravaged by tsunami after tsunami after earthquake.

CMDGlobal.com - Red Cross - Canada - Cossette Media - A clever crease highlights a major issue.
The ad formed a topological map depicting an Asian shoreline. At the point where the crease would naturally occur in the paper – somewhere mid-ocean on the map - words such as earthquake, flood, storm and typhoon congregated together forming a wave of disaster.

Make Your Halloween Costume . . .

. . . with B A L L O O N S !!!

Disclosure: I do not know the event for which these balloon costumes were made, or if it was a contest. If you have information, please leave me a comment.

Do-It-Yourself: If you have patience, time and lots of balloons, you can make a killer costume!

Suggestion: I would suggest wearing a body suit because you may run into a bunch of drunks with pins.




President Obama Awarded Nobel Peace Prize

Barack Obama, 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

On Friday, October 9, 2009 at 11 am CEST, the Norwegian Nobel Institute awarded named Barack Obama as the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate. The Institute awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.

Transparency, Honesty and Disclosure

Independent bloggers who fail to disclose paid reviews or freebies may face up to $11,000 in fines from the Federal Trade Commission, according to revisions to the agency's Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising published Monday.

View Press Release : FTC Publishes Final Guides Governing Endorsements, Testimonials

The FTC will be watching celebrities, as well. Celebrities will have to disclose their relationships with advertisers when making endorsements outside traditional advertising venues.

Download your copy of the FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION 16 CFR Part 255
Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising (PDF, 81 pages), by clicking here or using the link above.

A couple of years ago, disclosure was a buzz word in the blogosphere. Bloggers who wrote sponsored posts or paid reviews, gave testimonials for or reviewed products were called to disclose. If you are not aware of the importance of transparency and honesty in advertising, you should read the summary of the document by FTC. After all, it did take almost 30 years for the FTC to amend them.

If want help with disclosure, you could use my disclosure policy as a draft, and change it up or generate another one. Something that I have added to all my blogs is my personal blogging ethics, based on Word of Mouth Marketing (WOM) Guidelines. View my blogging ethics here.

Transparency, Honesty and Disclosure are the best way to conduct business. If you use your blog or website to generate revenue, let your readers know.

Equal time for bad ads

I am sure there is one ad that makes you cringe when you see it. For me, it is those stupid Sonic advertisements with the couple or the two men. AUUUGGGGHHHH! Well, do not let those bad ads send your blood pressure up or throw shoes at the TV when the bad ads air. Now, there is something you can do. Submit the worst ad to The Tracy Awards for Bad Ads.

I like this. You may submit any ad that you really hate. It is easy to do and you may be an anonymous nominator if you wish. Submit a TV ad, a print ad, a billboard, a website . . .

The winners (losers) will be sent a Tracy. All the ads that win Tracys will be nationally publicized as The Worst Advertising of 2009.

From The Tracy Awards website:
There's A Lot of Bad Advertising Out There

Ever see advertising that's so horrendous, you wish you could somehow get back at whoever made it by burning down their house and nominating them for an award of some sort for bad advertising?

If so, your wish is about to come true.

While you are visiting, look at some of the entries on the Cream of the Crap page. I have this site bookmarked so that when I see ads of Tracy caliber, I can easily submit them. This is going to be very entertaining. Check it out.

Blog Your Blessing : : Christmas in August

A God becomes Child to save the children,
Shepherds chant with the tongue of Angels,
Salvation is described in a Mystery,
Heaven and Earth mingle into one Soul this night.

Prophecy is the point of a Star.
Cherubim bow with the neck of Shepherds.
A cave becomes the Gate of the Universe
While kings search for the bed of a Begger.

A Maiden becomes the Mother of Grace;
Life has been given another Life.
The Child reaches out, takes hold of the world
And smiles the Innocent Smile.

In this Miracle all miracles are born -
The blind receive sight and the deaf have song,
The cold and homeless have shelter
And pilgrims cease their wanderings.

In this Creation all creation is born
And all creatures have a voice.
We find ourselves kneeling alongside the Magi.
The Child turns, looks and recognizes.

New Age Comments

Have you received the New Age comments?
You are possessed of assured karma. Your chi energy is emerging. Your destiny will be found in the impartiality of your loyalty. No tears in the writer no tears in the reader.
Any of the bolded words may be exchanged with others, so the comment may be recycled. The last sentence is always a sentence that reads like a fortune cookie.

I wish I would have copied all the New Age comments I have received in the past week. I was hit pretty hard on all my blogs by the same new agers.

While these new age comments are a bit easier to read, they are still spam.

Blog Your Blessing : Dogs & Boys Who Love Them

Right Click on Photograph to Open Larger View

We were floating around in our plastic canoe at the Devils Waterhole. We heard some young men yelling "stay in the boat," then a lot of splashing, and a few choice words. These young men paddled across the lake with their dogs in (and out of) the kayak. The dogs were not scared, they just wanted to get in the water. It was the cutest photograph, and, for once, I had my camera!

Blog Your Blessing : Clean Water

Sunset over Inks Lake, TexasInks Lake at Sunset, August 2009
Photography by Eileen Trainor




Can we afford clean water?

Can we afford rivers and lakes
and streams and oceans
which continue
to make possible life on this planet?


Can we afford life itself?

Those questions were never asked as we
destroyed the waters of our nation,

and they deserve no answers as
we finally move to restore and renew them.


These questions answer themselves.

arguing for the passage of the Clean Water Act in 1972,

Twittering During Birth

If you thought bringing a digital camcorder with a zoom into the birthing room was crass, you are going to love this.

Sara, the wife of Twitter's CEO, is twitting while she is in labor. You can catch the latest here: http://twitter.com/sara While you have to give her credit for being a Twitter trooper, I wonder what will happen as we get closer and closer to baby's birth.

I do not know about y'all, but I was screaming to the saints and Jesus to just TAKE HIM OUT! TAKE HIM OUT! TAKE HIM OUT! when my baby was born. It was a natural birth, if you consider I was not drugged and he was pulled from the birth canal backwards with forceps.

Oh, I just checked and she wants her epidural now. Maybe the baby will come fast and she will not be delayed in twittering the entire experience to Twitterdom.

This is opening an entire new frontier. Perhaps I will twitter during my next mammogram, pelvic exam, biopsy or psych evaluation. Just look for the CyberPsycho handle on Twitter and you will find me, capturing, cataloging and sharing my various procedures. Should I keep the specimens for use in follow up blog posts? Only kidding . . .

Sara, best of luck. I hope everything goes smoothly and you have an easy time during the birth of your child. Angels all around you and your family.


Blog Your Blessing : Rock of Ages

One Billion Years in a Road Cut
(FM 1431, Marble Falls, Texas)

I could think of no greater blessing today than the work of God
that is evidenced on the land on which we camp.
The geology of this area is incredible.
The lakes are full and I am happy.
Happy Blog Your Blessing Sunday!

Sing with me, now. . .

Rock Of Ages

Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood,
from thy wounded side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure;
save from wrath and make me pure.


Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law's commands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.


Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless, look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly;
wash me, Savior, or I die.


While I draw this fleeting breath,

when mine eyes shall close in death,
when I soar to worlds unknown,
see thee on thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.

Branding the Moon to Benefit Mankind?

When I first saw the term, Advertise on the Moon, I thought it was a joke. After exploring, I found Moon Publicity, LLC, really does plan to sell advertising on the moon!

The reason? To stimulate space travel. Read on.

From the website : Moon Publicity | Advertise on the Moon
Forty years ago man walked on the Moon. Where have we walked since? It is time that we find a way. Creating images on the Moon provides a commercial incentive for turbo charging space travel technology. Shadows are only the beginning. These advancements will eventually place robots on other worlds building space stations and planting crops.
Shadow Shaping technology (patent pending) can create images on the Moon that may be viewed from the Earth. Future lander/robots will create ridges in the lunar dust that capture and shape shadows to form YOUR FOREVER AD.

Bid on your spot NOW.

From now until October 20, 2009, you may bid on ad space on the moon. I think it will be more like bidding to become a supply of capital to further this technology. The winning bids will be announced early November 2009.

Put your brand where everyone in the world will see it, 3-4 days a month--forever.
