Many moons ago i updated my biz cards with cheapo Kmart software >


Of course it couldn't be more corny

i mean, my whole goal was just that

stand out, be colorful & noticed.....

BUT.....


I e-mailed it to a local printer, who when i went down to proof it insisted the program could not extricate the pink ring you see (which i did not introduce)

So i simply replied that, it kinda goes anyways, and 1000's where printed and passed out locally

Now this occured right on the eve of VT's monumental , first in the nation civil unions

Without getting political, we're many times the first or last state to legislate on hot issues

Subsequently, and for quite a while being too niave to connect those rainbow stickered vehicles flooding into the state to take advantage of said legislation.

Can you guess which well heeled faction of society i did a lotta biz with?

Perhaps a cfl & green ring would be appropos for the next update?

No politics! I have to say...a good marketing move, accidental or otherwise!!!

Maybe a solar panel or two somewhere?? LED & CFL?

Take care & stay safe!
