I'm So Old, I remember When A Hashtag Was Called A Pound Sign

Hilarious, because it is true! (Speaking for ourselves, of course ;)

This great graphic by @KimGarst and it is simply SO true...and tasty sounding! 
Social Media is like a box of chocolates...you never know who you are going to meet, speak to, or what opportunities will come your way. Enough said.

#SocialMedia for Restaurants... You are What you TwEat!

Conversations on #socialmedia networks have a significant impact on purchasing behavior of consumers! Restaurants, like any other business, should use social media to reach out to their patrons, engage them, and address their concerns. The growth of a restaurant business relies heavily on providing the best experience for their guests. For restaurants, conversations on social networks can be a great barometer of what the guests are talking about, what they like, and what they are ‘disgusted’ about. Keeping plugged into these conversations can provide very potent insights into the minds of the guests for the restaurants!

Sharing Your Fave #Champagne Memory w/ @WearingMemories

Recently, our Champagne Sister @Champagnememori hosted a contest asking folks for their favorite Champagne memory.  The winner received a special hand crafted piece of Wearing Memories jewelry.  The repsonses were varied, sweet, heartbreaking and happy, all at once.  People have so many reasons for popping a cork!  Here are some of the responses to share with our viewers. Please feel free to add *your* fave Champagne memory in the comments below :)  *CLINK!* here to see some of the incredible pieces!
 ~When I was young I would always see my grand-father at the far end of his huge table, lighting up a cigar and popping a bottle of Champagne that would put stars into his eyes. I used to think those bottles were magnificent and magical because they used to light up the eyes of my grand-father. Big white flowers were drawn on those green bottles. I admired them for hours. Then my grand-father felt sick and I never saw those bottles again, nor the stars in his eyes. One morning, the phone rang, it was to tell me my grand-father had died overnight. When I got to his house, the first thing I saw on his table was a flute and a bottle of Perrier-Jouet. All my childhood memories came back all of a sudden. This Champagne is and will forever be linked to my grand-father. So when my best friend got her Wearing Memories piece a few days ago, I was at her place, and inside was a cap of Perrier-Jouet, I started crying right away, all those memories brought back to the surface overwhelming me with both joy and sadness.
 ~My boyfriend invited me in Milano for the millennium (I'm French, he's Australian) we were living in France. He bought a very good expensive bottle of Champagne for this special night, December 31st, 1999... And then at midnight during the fireworks he asked me to marry him! I said yes and since then we are happy hubby & wife with 2 awesome kids, Meg 13 & Tom 10. That night in Milano is and will always be my most beautiful Champagne memory. 
 ~When I was 18, all my sister wanted for her engagement gift was a bottle of Bollinger! I worked extra shifts and saved up the $150 to buy her a bottle. I still remember the excitement when the cork popped and the joy of tasting that hard earned Champagne together. It was our very first sip of Champagne. She still has the cork and the bottle 13 years later and this ring would be perfect for that cork!
 
~How can I choose? I drank Champagne the day I got engaged, the day I got married, the day my children were born, the day I found out I had beaten cancer, the day we buried my sister, and my father and my grandmother, the day my daughter graduated. Every time I drink Champagne is a beautiful memory...
 
~My husband getting his PhD in Mining Engineering!  We celebrated with a bottle of Champagne given to my uncle 30 years before when he got is mine managers certificate. The Moet we opened afterwards tasted much better, but the moment filled with history has been a precious family memory forever!
  ~Climbing to the top of the beautiful Mt. Warning in Northern NSW in the dark early hours of the morning with flashlights to see the first light of the New Year shining over the Eastern coast of Australia and suprisingly celebrating and (gasp!) sharing in plastic cups our bottle of champs from our backpack with other happy hikers who had arrived up the top of the mountain before us!!
 
~My partner and I were in Paris. We bought a bottle of Cristal to see what all the fuss was about. Oh my god, it was the most delightful and sublime experience as the unbelievably light bubbles danced in my mouth. I knew then, exactly what all the fuss was about!

A Warm Welcome to Art By Hab Sr!!

A warm welcome to ArtbyHab!! *applause* 

Go have a "LIKE" on his FB art page here:  ArtbyHab, where a new art piece will be posted each day! This gorgeous work of art above is currently being exhibited at the Carlsbad Oceanside Art League (C.O.A.L.) Gallery.
Here is Hab with his award winning piece, titled: "OCEAN TRENCH". This Painting was awarded "First Place" at the COAL Art Gallery in Carlsbad, CA.
A few words by this prolific painter: 

Thank you for coming along on my art journey!

I served nine years with the United States Marine Corps and thirty-five years with the Aerospace and Defense Industry. During this period of time I was fortunate enough to travel extensively throughout the Far East, Middle East and Europe. I actually lived in Japan for several years. After retiring from the Aerospace and Defense Industries I started my own consulting firm and finally retired in my late sixties. I began painting after I retired in 2009. So here I am, doing something that I have always wanted to do. Painting and creating art is one of the most rewarding endeavors that I have ever taken on. I use acrylics media exclusively, mainly because I like to paint on clay pavers and crushed marble tiles that can withstand outside conditions. I enjoy using a variety of colors in my paintings as you will see in the gallery. I hope you will enjoy my painting as much as I did while creating them!
I am a member of the Carlsbad Oceanside Art League (COAL) and anywhere from one to three of my painting are on display. View my work anytime --1-3 paintings on display at the COAL Art Gallery, 300 Carlsbad Village Dr., Ste 101. You can also make an appointment to visit my studio! Just leave a comment and I will get back to you!

Oh, #Pinterest... WHY?!

*gasp* Whyyyyy #Pinterest?! NO MORE hashtags or pin links! Did you know that Pinterest made these critical changes to their design? What do you think about this change?  #SocialMedia


*Update: it appears that Pinterest recanted this development, thank goodness! *phew* That would change the entire pinning landscape!
