Great street art of 2012 by Anorak | 19th, November 2012 GREAT Street art: Spotter: StreetUtopia Anorak How to Make the Best Use of An Email Signature So many times email signatures are an afterthought and not really looked at as an opportunity to sell. What I mean by “email signature” is the signature you put at the bottom of your person-to-person emails, not on your email marketing campaigns (although you can use signatures for that as well!) And I don’t only mean your own email signature, I mean the email signatures of all of your employees as well, especially if you’re sending out a lot of customer service related emails. First things first, you’ve got to make sure that there are standard pieces of information your employees include when they’re representing your business. Name, company name, address and phone number.Twitter and Facebook links and encourage people to follow you.Website and blog address. There are also some creative ways you can utilize the email signature portion of your emails that might not be “necessary” but could be fun to add as well as help increase your sales! © 2010 – 2012, VR Marketing Blog.
On the Ball Origin and Meaning When someone is highly alert, sharp and generally at their best, we say that they are “on the ball”. What ball are we referring to? What is the origin of this phrase: “to be on the ball”? Whilst there are several theories floating around regarding the origins of the idiom “on the ball” there is one theory that has the highest likelihood of being correct, and this theory relates to the ball games, particularly baseball. In the early 1900s, baseball pitchers would try to put special spins, curves, speeds and tricks on the ball to outwit the batter. A good pitcher always puts something on the ball, and the commentators and sports journalists of the time would note this. Another use of the phrase “on the ball” was also used during training in ball games where coaches encouraged the players to keep their eye on the ball for optimal performance.

It’ a Pie Thing | Katrina Runs For Food Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the upcoming fall season. It’s my favorite time of year and I love everything about October-December. Of course, cooking for the season is a lot of fun and part of that involves a lot of baking. But until then, Lola needs a workout. Berry topped cream cheese pie 2 8oz pkgs light cream cheese2 cups of whipped cream-whip your own using heavy cream and a mixer or use Cool-Whip Free. 1. 2. 3. 4. The only sugar in this is from dairy cream and berries. Here she is whipping up some cream cheese cake with whipped cream. I made a whole 9 inch pie with fresh blueberries and raspberries that I cooked down into their own juices. I made my own cup of the good stuff. I ate about 4 bites before the sweet blueberries were a little too overwhelming. It’s about time for the heat wave to give it up. Tagged as: Lola

Share on: Avocado BLT with Fried Egg And Chipotle Mayo Lunch is normally when sandwiches come out but the other week I was enjoying the fantastic poached eggs on toast with chipotle mayonnaise, bacon and avocado, an open faced sandwich, for breakfast and lunch sure was getting jealous! I was feeling a little bad about the whole situation and I had an idea about how to make things right; I could bring some of that chipotle lime mayo lovin to lunch by adding it to one of my favourite sandwiches the BLT. Just to make absolutely sure that there were no hard feeling I also brought along some avocado and a fried egg with runny yolk; which makes almost anything better. Although a BLT is really good just the way it is, you can make it even better by adding things. Over the last few years I have done a bit of experimenting with different kinds of BLT's including ones with pesto mixed into the mayonnaise, ones with avocado and ones with fried eggs. I am happy to report that lunch is feeling better now and we can go back to being close friends.

Caprese Salad Along with the green tomatoes the farmers market was also filled with perfectly ripe locally grown red field tomatoes. I had been waiting for the fresh field tomatoes so that I could try a caprese salad. A caprese salad or a insalata caprese is a simple salad consisting of fresh tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. The salad can be seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper and maybe even a touch of balsamic vinegar. Does this salad look good?
