What's New ?
   Why You Are So Special

We only have one Granddaughter so I often tease her by telling her that she is by far my favorite Granddaughter. She laughs and says, “I know, because I am your only Granddaughter." She often asks, "What if you get another Granddaughter, will I still be your favorite?" I always tell her, "You will always be my favorite oldest Granddaughter?" She knows we are just having fun but she still likes to hear that she is the favorite. We all like to feel like we are special.

Customers like it when they feel like they are special to a business as well. We can't just tell our customers they are special can we? We can, but it may be better received if we tell them why they are important to our business.

Years ago, we went out to eat while visiting my in-laws. My Mother-in-law and Father-in-law ate at the same restaurant just about every Saturday night. While we were enjoying our meal, the owner approached and said hello, my in-laws introduced me and after the normal pleasantries the business owner told us that it was people like my in-laws that visited his restaurant regularly that kept him in business. He went on to tell us that the business was responsible for feeding his children all of which had worked in the restaurant at one time or another. He thanked my in-laws again for their business and went back to serving other customers. My in-laws continued to eat there until the business was sold years later.

A sincere appreciation for the business a customer brings us is a critical part of the service process. Without that appreciation a customer can be easily swayed to go with a competitor. How we show appreciation to our customers is often unique to our respective industries. The concept is the same no matter what business we are in, the appreciation must be sincere and it should be delivered in such a way that it isn't construed as marketing.

Many businesses use special discounts, customer appreciation days, product workshops and more to let customers know they are appreciated. It does not matter how we show our customers that we appreciate their business, the critical thing is that we show them how important they are to our continued success.

Most people want to help others and if they can purchase a quality product or service and feel appreciated by the business owner they feel the transaction was a success. Our customers should feel special; after all they are the reason for our success.
Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go, a mobile game app that overlays a Google map over a game world has surprised many with it's sky rocketing popularity.

As with any phenomenon the large number of people playing the game has created a few less than pleasant results. There are reports of people entering an Australian Police Station and bothering employees while looking to "capture" a game character when they could gather the character digitally without entering the building. Missouri police have confirmed that four teens in the St. Louis area lured people to "Game Character" locations and then robbed them. The game can also create a digital character location that lands on private property, prompting concerns of trespassing and the resulting conflicts.

There is good news that goes along with the Nintendo game as well. Many say the game is prompting them to be more active as they search for game character collection sites. With technology typically adding to the problems associated with an over weight nation it is nice to see a mobile app that does the opposite. Others have reported meeting through the app and setting up dates.

It will be interesting to see the effects of the game after the hysteria dies down.

What Did They Say?
1. If I had a dollar for every girl that found me unattractive, they would eventually find me attractive.
2. Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool. I gave him a glass of water.
3. Waking up this morning was an eye-opening experience.
4. I changed my password to "incorrect". So whenever I forget what it is the computer will say "Your password is incorrect".
When I call a family meeting I turn off the house wifi and wait for them all to come running
Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y?
7. Regular naps prevent old age, especially if you take them while driving.
Never tell your problems to anyone...20% don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them...
9. Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.
How do I disable the autocorrect function on my wife?

Free software to determine hard drive space usage


With large capacity hard drives becoming the norm I thought we should revisit a tool that will help you determine where all of that space is going. SpaceSniffer is a portable and free solution that graphically displays how the space on your hard drive is being used.

After scanning a hard drive you can examine large files and folders by clicking on them to see a larger view of the file or folder that is hogging all of that space. You can tag selected files using four different colors so you can examine them later. Filter files by type, date and more.

If you want to see all files older than two years you can filter the SpaceSniffer results and determine if the files are worth saving. You can also filter by file size as well as combine filters.
