03.17.20 | A NYC cannabis delivery service reports, that despite social distancing, people still want to smoke. The ubiquitous NYC underground weed delivery services equate our current crisis to that of a major storm where people are confined in-house for a period of time and want to partake in some recreational weed. Oh, the humanity. Then, transparency and communication are important to avoid financial infidelity in relationships, and procrastination is a challenge we all have to manage.
03.11.20 | And a one and a two… Lawrence Welk is our Business Birthday this week. An Allentown museum has a real Rembrandt and a Mississippi Hilton has started to foster dogs with great success. We share our progress on developing a new logo for Tribury using the services of Fiverr.com. Shop Talk looks at reinstating Sunday Supper to ward off the Sunday Scaries—the dreaded Monday back to work angst.
