Fly Away Little Bug, Before VW Kills Off Species

July 13th, 2019 · Tags: Cities · Satire

  Social media tells me that the Volkswagen Beetle is no more … again!  Remember the U.S. “Bug” was quashed years ago, although the Latin American-made Bugs continued to multiply south of the border, following that whole Boys From Brazil kinda thing – German stuff migrating to the southern latitudes and all that … I […]

Starbucks Floorplan Not Enough For This Footprint

July 2nd, 2019 · Tags: Coffee Shops · Satire · Wi-Fi

  AND THESE PEOPLE DRIVE CARS!?! I’ve told the story many times about the day that I took the driving portion of the test for my Texas Driver’s License.  My parallel parking abilities back then were pretty good at 16, but not used very often in Vega, Texas.  So if there was an area of […]

I May Be Indisposed, But I Know What You’re Up To

March 10th, 2019 · Tags: Coffee Shops · Gadgets · Satire · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

    It seemed to be a great revelation (to me) that if I left my JBL wireless headphones on, still playing music and around my neck while in the restroom of Starbucks — linked to my Mac laptop with a Bluetooth connection — I would know almost immediately if someone stole my laptop from […]

When One Door Slams … Lesson Learned?

March 3rd, 2019 · Tags: Satire

I was strolling along, down the sidewalk between the new Neiman Marcus in Fort Worth and Starbucks … near the multi-colored, spinning shadow of the stained-glass windmill, when I saw a familiar face. But my friend wasn’t casually strolling. She looked a bit frantic, clutching her young daughter in her arms — close to her […]

Simmer Down Woman … I Do Not Encroach … Much

February 3rd, 2019 · Tags: Coffee Shops · Satire

Well … someone is wound up just a little too tightly, now aren’t they!?! “Starbucks … security!  Someone has been over served.”  There I was, sitting at the coffee shop, minding my own business, drinking a venti black tea and also the 120 gallons of water my docs recommend daily … when it hit me.

Playing The C Card – A Media Relations Farce Of One

December 30th, 2018 · Tags: Satire · Sports

You have my word.  If I am ever invited back for a second time to speak in front of the hundreds of members of the Dallas/Fort Worth Interactive Marketing Association, or the Dallas Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America, or the Fort Worth Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America, or to […]

ServPro First Responders Bowl … Ain’t Happenin

December 27th, 2018 · Tags: Music · Satire · Sports

All roads leading to the historic Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas seemed to be clear for a timely arrival, even through some rough neighborhoods, west of Fair Park.  I had remembered to bring my media pass and my parking pass, no easy feat for me.  The grayish blue clouds parted for a few moments, as […]

July 6th, 2018 · Tags: Arts · Satire

      “There is more to life than making apparently obvious observations” – Jerry Seinfeld   Before this blog is read, Facebook, Instagram, Google+, etc., will have reworked something new into their social media blueprints for world domination (just when we thought we had this whole thing figured out.) But we play right along […]

Pitching Names For New Texas Baseball Team

June 1st, 2018 · Tags: Cities · Satire · Sports

  What’s in a name? I know people. And some of those people like to name things … imaginary rock bands and maybe a country band name or two. My most recent, Tire Swing … I digress. One’s name, or brand is important … trying to exalt your name above all names (of your competitors […]
