Taking Care of Bizzi-ness

Here's a great shot of our news friends from the DK Company, the folks working on the bullying film.  From what I hear, Saturday's shoot at Pinecrest Historical Village was chilly but emotional.  The 5 A.M. call was certainly shocking to many participants, and even though people understood that they may only be seen as a speck in a large group shot, the turnout was great.  I'm still sworn to secrecy about the final moments of the movie, and tough as it is, I will respect that request.  

In LDD news, loyal employees, Debbie and Matt both believe we are on the verge of the apocalypse because of what they see as a peculiar change of heart for me.  After years of fighting it, I have activated a FaceBook page.  The truth is that Brendo, an employee who relocated to Madison after her marriage - and who should be in labor with her first baby as I write this - set up a FB page for me while I wasn't looking back in 2009.  I puttered with it for four days, and then shut it down upon discovering that I had shockingly little to say of interest or import.

In the past weeks -years, really - I have become more and more accepting of how important a FB page is for business, and so I stepped in once again.  In order to have a business page, I needed a personal page. Jacque Miller patiently walked me through the security settings on both pages last Wednesday, and guess what, I still have nothing of interest or import to say.  However, if you want, you can LIKE us and eventually, I will find a way to make the page both scintillating and serviceable.  There's a link on the right side 

What am I reading?  People Magazine and not a darn other thing.  With the play at UW-Manitowoc, and dealing with contractors and insurance adjusters both here at at home, there has been little time.  Methinks it's time for a palette cleanse again.  That usually means a young adult novel.  I'm thinking something with pirates might be good.  I'll let you know.

Thanks for stopping by.
