$25 For $2 ? SUPERB DEAL on the 'net

I am all for deals, steals and bargain hunting. Occasionally, there comes along a deal that I have to tell EVERYONE about.

Would you buy a restaurant gift certificate for $2 that has a value of $25? This is not a trick question.

Even better question: Do you have any business associates that you'd like to get them a great gift, and a small cost to yourself?

Heres what to do

1.) Go to
2.) Look up the city where you want to find the available restaurants that participate.

3.) On surface,$25 Gift certs are going for $10. $10 dollar gift certs are going for $3 . pretty good deal. But Wait... THERE'S MORE..........

4.) Be sure to use the coupon code "TREATS". This will give you an additional 80% off. Yes, that's correct. 80 PERCENT OFF.

Be sure to read the conditions of the restaurant. Nothing major, but may be a minimum order, or only useful on a weekday night. At these prices, who cares?

I will mention that the restaurants are all types of cuisines, and there are inexpensive diners as well as pricey trattoria's.

Now thats what I call a TASTY deal!

Expecting 100% Readership of This ( IMPT)

I ask you to read this link with an open mind and share your thoughts.

Could this be true?
What if it is true?
Click below for the link.

I also ask that you DO YOUR OWN HOMEWORK to get what you determine is the truth (there are plenty of places on the internet to find truth).

>> Ask questions.
>> Dig.
>> Do your own research.

That’s what I’m doing; and I’m not “telling you/influencing you” with my final decisions.

>> Just EDUCATE YOURSELF, and draw your own conclusions.

You can find for yourself the real truth, rather than what someone with an agenda wants to “feed you”.
>> Then share with others what you find, and ask them to do the same.

Last I knew, no one likes to be duped, tricked, or conned.

One final thought, I ask you:
Is an uneducated vote worse than no vote at all??

Thank you for your time and your open mind.
T.A Smith,
Proud citizen of the United States of America.

QUOTES with Double or Triple meanings?

I always get a kick out of reading quotes that can be interpreted in several different ways. One of the fascinating things about the human being is how 4 people could look at the exact same thing and see 4 different scenerios.

At the S-T Think Tank, I will periodically find a quote that is both interesting AND has the versatility of being interpreted different from several people.

Without further adieu... here's one for the noggin:

"If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience." -Woodrow Wilson-

I read that as; always carry treats with you. Kidding.I read it as dogs are incredibly loving creatures, yet have a sixth, seventh and even eighth sense at times. A dog that turns you away must sense a good reason not to come to you.


Thats my view.
WHAT SAY YOU on the interpretation of the quote?

Why Worry??

Here is a sign I saw in some store that made some sense. Comical, yet made me think.

Why Worry

There are only two things to worry about:
Either you are well or you are sick.
If you are well, then there is nothing to worry about;
But if you are sick, there are only two things to worry about:
Whether you will get well, or whether you will die.
If you get well, there is nothing to worry about;
But if you die, there are only two things to worry about:
Whether you will go to heaven or hell.
If you go to heaven, there is nothing to worry about;
And if you go to hell, you'll be so busy shaking hands with old friends,you won't have time to worry.

So stop WORRYING and enjoy life!

Does Friendly Service at Fast Food joints REALLY MATTER?

The question is: Do you think that friendly service at fast food places matter to getting your business?

The other day I stopped at a local Subway. Upon entering, I was greeted with a "welcome to Subway" from a smiling employee behind the counter. She promptly came up to me to immediately take my order.

A bit of friendly small talk and my sandwich was made. This employee clearly had a warm,positive attitude as she cashed me out and said "have a pleasant day."

Sounds simple, yet, how many times are these simple basics missing from a consumer transaction? Needless to say, I'll be back there again, to spend my 5 bucks.

I say QUICK, FRIENDLY, APPRECIATIVE customer service does matter in winning my business.

That's my view. WHAT SAY YOU?

A FUN post for Columbus Day

If it wasn't for a gentleman named Christopher Columbus,discovering America some 500+ years back,perhaps I would'nt even be able to write this silly blog today. Thanks to CC :)

Here we've stumbled across some creative signs posted out there in the Working World.

In a podiatrists office: "Time wounds all heels."
On a maternity room door: "Push,push,push."
On an electricians truck: "Let us remove your shorts."
Outside a muffler shop: "No appointment necessary. We hear you coming."
At an electric company: We'd be delighted if you send in your payment. However,if you don't,you will be."
At a propane fillign station: "Thank heaven for little grills."
Back of a septic truck: "Caution,this truck is full of political promises."

Finally at a tire shop: Be sure to invite us to your next blowout."

Have you seen any funny and creative signs?
Please, Do SHARE..........

A Refreshing Business Lunch

I had lunch with a business colleague and former high school classmate yesterday. She was one of those that I knew, but not in depth.

Over the past few years, I've had about 15-20 business dealings with her. Interestingly, the more I find out about her and her character, the more impressive she becomes.I like those rare finds.

A few things I've discovered is that she's a single mom with good core values installed into her kids. Always have to respect that. Hard, hard worker of 50-60 hours a week. Loyal employee with a very pleasant attitude. Professional as they come; one that doesnt speak ill or gossip of others(this trait in itself,hard to find).Finally, she is a woman of her word. The type that returns all calls, and emails, and if she tells you something, you can bank on it happening.

In sum, she's a stand up gal. I found both the lunch, and her to be very REFRESHING.

What about you? Do you come across many stand up people in your business world/regular world, or is it a RARE find?

What say YOU?

6 New Ways To Say HELLO

Did you ever notice the way we greet one another? It seems to me the better the questions we ask, the better the information we' ll get in return. Personally, I've realized that I want to make an effort to say hello in new ways. This will in turn generate better information, more interesting responses, and ultimately, better conversations.

What are some examples of the ways we commonly say hello?

How are you? ( common responses..... good/ ok/ not bad).
Hey, whats up? ( not much/ nothing).
Whats going on? ( aah, not much/ just chilling).
What you been up to?(nothing/not much).
Hows work/school? ( ok/ not bad).

How about these:

John, whats the most exciting thing to happen to YOU this week?
Joe, whats new this week in YOUR world?
Jill, how about giving me a 2 minute update in JILLWORLD?
Jerry, whats interesting in your life these days?
Jake, whats the MOST FUN thing that happened to you in the past week? Any vacations planned?
Jim, on a 1-10 scale, who are things in your life?

Those are just a few. It's actually amazing that aboutl 912 things happen in a day, and I just cannot remember them. When someone says whats up, the brain just goes to the auto responder .. not much. Actually I've borrowed a line from my brother in law and now answer the whats up question with EVERYTHING.

Do you have any creative greetings to open up the conversation doors?

Thats my view...... what say YOU?

Thats My View, What Say YOU??

Today, let's discuss the value of getting YOUR views, and the power of sharing information.

Two main points.

First, there is an old adage that scientists and researchers say we humans only use about 10% of our brains. We are incredibly smart creatures, yet don't use nearly our potential.

Look at what computers can accomplish. How about the world wide web and what can be done there. Travel from continent to continent in a single day. Converse with someone 15,000 miles away instantaneously, via email. Put someone on the moon. And yes, lets not forget the creation of the Fluffernutter. All of the above were created by human BRAINS!

I'll attempt to get using my brain a tad more than that 10% figure. More importantly, I want to reach into yours as well.

Second, perhaps you are aware of Dale Carnegie, one of the all time great motivators, and specialists in human relations. Dale once said ,"People love to talk about themselves. If you want to make a friend, ask questions and listen. Let others tell you what they think and feel."

I've found in life that people can't LEARN much when their mouth is open.

Thus, the Smile-Therapy Think Tank will be Bloggin' to YOUR noggin. I will use my brain on some subject and with some luck, I'll start the engines of your mind to draw a response or two from you.

How much can we learn when we all share our wisdom, personal experiences and knowledge with each other? I find that question quite exciting

Thats my view. What Say YOU?

Welcome to the Smile-Therapy Think Tank (S-T TT)

This is blog #1 of many more to come, and is probably being read by the whopping audience of 1 (myself). The good news is, as soon as someone else reads it , my audience will have doubled. Four people and I’ve quadrupled my readership. Off we go, like a herd of turtles!

The theme of the S-T TT will always be my thoughts on something random, with an attempt to get you, the reader, to go HMM, then convey YOUR Thoughts. You’ ll frequently see the ending line “That’s my view, what say you?”

I try to have some variety, as I love to keep my readers guessing and thinking , I wonder what the “Think Tank” has in store today?

A few things you can look forward to are as follows
  1. Quotes and how I interpreted it and how YOU interpret it
  2. Questions to ponder, such as.. Are cell phones necessary in the bathroom?
  3. A fill in the blank, mystery, or trivia mind bender
  4. New tips for the week, that were shared at
  5. Eye catching T shirts, signs and stickers seen out there on planet earth
  6. Basically anything that happens in life that I find worth a write and looking for your opinions, views, and perspectives.
Next blog we’ll discuss the value of getting your views and the power of sharing information

On Blog #1, that’s my view. What say you?
