Idaho Town's Problem is Bird Droppings

The central issue facing this Idaho town is bird droppings.

"Damages rooftops' paint and exterior surfaces, said Brian Foster, city facilities management superintendent. The amount is also a health risk to employees performing maintenance on the roofs, he said."

Kindle Pick of the Week: The Amy Binegar-Kimmes-Lyle Book of Failures: A funny memoir of missteps, inadequacies, and faux pas

With a book release party coming on Monday night in the Atlanta area, let's take a look at Amy Lyle's book:

THE AMY BINEGAR-KIMMES-LYLE BOOK OF FAILURES is a humor memoir. If you have ever failed at love, finances, been fired, not fit in, self-diagnosed yourself with disorders and conditions and/or said "I really need to get my s*** together," this is the book for you. Delight in Amy Lyle’s 45 years of missteps, inadequacies and faux pas. You may appreciate your own dysfunction a little more as you take a journey through Amy’s debacles including: “I Was Not Talking to You,” where Amy mistakes a handsome man waving at her as a potential suitor but in reality he was only trying to inform her that her belt was dragging on the freeway and “In the Neighborhood,” where members of a cult moving in concurred with a suspicious decline in the cat population.

There is more than just that.

 

Books launch info:

The book launch party will be a social media movement (#bookoffailures) and cocktail party, offering wine and cheese and lots of prizes from local businesses, including $100 Home Depot gift cards, free eye brow waxes, vampire facial, and a SculptSure fat reducing treatment. Fellow high-functioning dysfunctionals who aspire to channel their missteps, inadequacies and faux pas into success will be on hand to celebrate.

Ten percent of all book proceeds, including sales at the book launch and all sales total, will be donated to local charity, The Place of Forsyth County, which empowers people through training to become self-sufficient. The event is free for the public, but attendees are asked to bring a health or beauty item donation for The Place of Forsyth County.

My 5/10/17 Appearance on The LinkedIn Lady Show for Mother's Day

Nice intro by Carol...

Some would argue that the most important holiday of the year is Mother’s Day. But have you thought of how you will honor your mother and everyone else’s mother using social media? That’s how we’ll kick off today’s show with returning guest, Rick Limpert.

You can see his work on Yahoo News and Sports as a contributor, along with CBS Interactive and his new gadget/tech website: WirelessWednesday.live  Rick has been featured in numerous publications including Sports Illustrated, Fox SportsNet and The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

If you’re looking for creative ideas this is the show to listen to. We’ll cover Teleflora’s Mother’s Day campaign, what Atria Senior Living is doing to celebrate moms, and how even Google is in the middle of the mix.

Create your own campaign for your business or apply some of these ideas just for yourself. Tons of ideas and information for this special day and holidays to come.
