Words of Wisdom

I spent Wednesday with my mother. She spent our time together dispensing the accumulated knowledge and wisdom of her nearly 81-years.


At least what of it she could remember!


They say that there is a difference between wisdom and knowledge. For example, if you know that a tomato is a fruit, you have knowledge. But if you know that tomatoes don’t belong in a fruit salad; you have wisdom!


On Wednesday mom dispensed that, “The secret to happiness is the right mirror!”


Which I think, is knowledge and wisdom!


Monday, November 30th, at 9 AM, perhaps as some of you are reading this blog, I will be having what I expect will be my final pre-launch daily “stand-up” meeting of THE Revolution web and e-commerce sites project.


Built by hand, by an independent paint dealer. For independent paint dealers!


The first if which is for Town Line Paint in Malden, Massachusetts.


If all goes as planned, on our call tomorrow I will give the instructions which will put the final piece in place: point the existing Town Line URL to the new site which we now call viable. Not advanced yet. That comes later. But more than minimally.


I’m told that this step of re-mapping the URL may take as many as a few days. Which means, I’m late!


THE plan to go live though, didn’t have the same plan as I did. Last week, small functionality and database issues which others might have considered picayune, stopped me from pulling the trigger and releasing the site.


Something about only having one chance to make a first impression.


Thanksgiving was not this year, but the food was still good. My sous and I prepared a slimmed-down version of the feast we might serve the fourth Thursday of every OTHER November!
