Best Cut?

A lot of us in the tech world complain about the commodization of our products and services. It’s hard to attract and retain customers when price is the only differentiator.

Imagine a service such as haircuts - there doesn’t seem to be a way to differentiate and attract loyal customers and make decent margins. After all, a haircut is a haircut. But John DiJulius, has managed to do just that.

John is the president of John Robert's Salon and Spa, which has been selected one of the top 20 salons in America. I saw him speak at the SBL Live luncheon at the Forum yesterday.

Check out the details.

Irish Summerfest tickets

The Irish Summerfest is going to be at Classic Park in Eastlake this June. Not sure how they will handle the logistics - I always liked it at Euclid Park.

ClevelandWomen.Com and are sponsors of the event so we are holding a raffle for some 4-packs of free tickets.

Check it out - good luck.

Jim Beam, Jack Daniels and...

Wild Turkey?

My favorite bourbon is a brand called Rebel Yell and you can’t find it above the Mason Dixon line. My friends and I first tried it because we saw Keith Richards holding a bottle of it in a photo in the Rolling Stones Exile on Mainstreet album.

If it was good enough for Keef, we had to try it.

But I digress. Yesterday when heading down Forest Hills Blvd. I saw a – wild turkey! – near Forest Hills Park. Not a buzzard, not a goose but a real wild turkey. Then today coming home along Monticello, traffic was forced to stop as this (I assume there’s only one but who knows) wild turkey crossed the street at a leisurely pace.

Enough to drive a man to drink. ;-)
