Memory Lane

This is Lilah's first time holding Jack. She was a little rough. Not much has changed.

Jack-ee-boy Getting So Big

Here's a video Poppy took of Jack this past Sunday, 3/14.


He's such a good looking kid! Yes, I'll need to post one of Lilah soon.

The Frozen Shore of a Great Lake

Somewhere between Minneapolis and New York.





I'm guessing it's near Erie, PA, based on this awesome web site about flight paths I found on line. Check this one out.

A Big Ad

Commercials are better when they are blatant.



In my readings, I've found that consumers see a big difference between brands and advertising. Since Vince Packard published The Hidden Persuaders in 1957, most Americans are comfortable with the idea that advertising manipulates them. There is a trade off, with ads funding much of the entertainment that people rely on while imposing an element of forced consumer into our everyday lives. With packaging, consumers expect a higher level of accuracy about product quality and content (CSPI Study, 2009). Because of the inherent trust that consumers put into their brands, they see packaging as a much more authoritative source of information.
