Check the Calendar!


During a recent networking meeting, someone got up and talked about how important it is to get one’s marketing materials in order as soon as the year starts.

“I did this on the very first day of the year, January second,” he said.

Hmmm. What planet starts its numerical sequence with 2?

I think that guy is at least one day short of a month!

Until next time! Use the right words!

Get His Name Right!


I have never met Bob Gale. In fact, I don’t know who he is, and I didn’t know why I would.

But this past weekend, I went to the Hollywood Museum and saw a “Back to the Future” exhibit, and it was there I was reminded that Gale co-wrote the series with Robert Zemeckis.

Then I saw this:

I did a double-take. Was I really seeing this? His name was everywhere, yet no one noticed the misspelling?

I told the friend standing next to me. He didn’t notice it, until I pointed it out to him. Then he couldn’t unsee it.

I hope Bob Gale finds out about this, contacts the museum and requests the correction be made.

Until next time! Use the right words!
