CUSTOMER SERVICE

Keeping carpet clean is important to a plumber, they don’t want to cause upset. This is a smart item for them to have & use. It leaves a reminder that you matter, and would be more inclined to keep this plumber in mind in case of further need.

Customer service is one thing that technology cannot replace. It may make some things more easily done, but it remains a concept that is important, regardless of the means used to do a task.

Et resurrexit tertia die…

….secundum Spripturus,
et ascendit in caelum,
sedet ad detexteram Patris

Et expecto resurrectionem mortuorum, et vitam venturi saeculi.  Amen.

HAPPY EASTER TO EVERYONE, WHICH IS HOW IT WAS INTENDED FROM DAY ONE!

SCRIPTOMANIA

A little more overview, with some missing details to ponder…20 March 2013

On the streets of San Francisco, daily, some form of undecipherable script looms in front of us, challenging our senses. What does it say? What is the message? Many of these ‘tags’ (which came first the street form or the Social Media form for this term?) are out there, with an aesthetic all their very own. Her are two views of the same one, as my point & click could not get a full view without compromising the details.

I can read the letters, but not the words.

NAPOLEON ON TOP OF THE WORLD!

Once upon a time, a man name Napoleon Bonaparte had it in his mind to follow the likes of Charlemagne, Julius Caesar, and Alexander the Great. Things did not work out quite as he dreamed. That Nelson man got in the way, and other people had other ideas. Then, there was the weather in Russia & the resulting mud. My curiosity remains unsatisfied, as to why he was (and seems to remain so) such an inspiration for those who joined him. His saga is one that continually mystifies. A man cursed & feared by his enemies & nearly made

Emperor Napoleon I (Bonaparte) 1769-1821-a replica of the headgear associated with his legend, surmounting an antique globe, found on a  street in San Francisco, fitting in that it resembles his rise from obscurity to fame/infamy.

an idol by his followers. He did all of this in an era when there was no electronic alignment of zeros & ones to ‘Like’ him. The following was from the heart, so was the fear. He caused action, reactions, and changed the world.

Here is my little tribute to that dream of Unity, without the armies, without the blood being shed. I think he wanted things that way, but it’s tricky to attempt to wrap one’s mind around that of another, especially one gone so long. At any rate, I hope that’s what he wanted. It would be nice to see it happen in a way that no one had to be harmed, and that allowed all of us to win.

ARE WHAT WE EAT? That’s NICE! ? HAVE A NICE DAY!

If you want to be nice, you can eat these peanuts. If you have peanut allergies, the really bad ones, eat these & sin no more. You will be a nice person & live (albeit shortly) happily (and nicely) ever after.

It was my first time ever see a can of Nice! peanuts, and it was a nice experience. I did not eat any, because peanuts are not nice to me. Sigh, I guess I will live without benefit of Nice! This is a sad day for me, but a happy day for you, if you like peanuts, you might as well like & enjoy Nice! ones.

That’s it, Nice!

ARMED WITH INDIANA!

For those of us from (as F. Scott Fitzgerald called it) the Middle West, the smallest & most middle of the Old Middle West is Indiana. It’s where my mother’s people settled, up from the South & West from Ireland. Somehow or another, they all sort of melded together–Vincennes, Lafayette, Indianapolis, and Knightstown. These were the centers of my maternal line, and the latter where I spend the second part of my years of youth.

The first thing that impressed me upon moving to Indiana (having partially grown up in Kansas–another arm, another day, another blog?) was, beneath the snow, the grass somehow managed to remain green, really deep green, all year round. In Kansas, it would turn brown.

The other earth-like memory, was our house in Knightstown had Lily of the Valley*, growing next to the foundation on the shaded West side. Found out years later, it made a good cooling place for beer, acting as a sort of natural insulation for the stuff. But that’s a secret, one of those things that even your mother would never figure out. Unless, she was doing it too, and never told us about it?

No need to be up in arms about Indiana.  Wear with pride, cherish the memories, and in case you are inclined to forget your map, always remember where you came from...

So, instead of wearing your heart on your sleeve, you can, if you like, wear Indiana on your arm, if you can’t get it out of your mind. The town represented in this depiction is Bloomington, home to Indiana University.

*Mae West sang a song called WILLIE OF THE VALLEY, but it wasn’t the same thing. She had quite a sense of the absurd, and used it to great advantage. Yes, she had been to England, and knew what it meant.
