AccuWeather: Dreaming of a White Christmas? Here are your odds
AccuWeather reports upon the millions of Christmas cards that hit store shelves each holiday season, many are strewn with images of a homey dwelling tucked under puffy mounds of white snow.

Marietta McCarty: One indie bookstore
Around the country I’ve traveled, thriving on talks at indie bookstores from Seattle to Portland to Boston to New York to Little Rock to Greensboro and throughout Virginia. One shop stands way out.

Advertising 101: Exploiting the Information Gap
You are setting up advertising for your business. Seems simple. You have a budget, and you know what you need. TV, radio, print, maybe some Facebook and Google. Then it hits you: I know that I need advertising, I know how much I have to spend, but I have no clue as to what will work for me. You let this slip to the first ad rep. (Sorry, they call themselves account executives.) Not surprisingly, the person on the other side of the table has a ready solution.
