Haven’t been to a trade show in many, many years. I used to try and attend several of them a year but I just haven’t had the opportunity as of late. A few days back a good lady friend of mine called and asked me to go to one with her next Saturday I have agreed to go and help her out and look forward to spending some time with her and hopefully finding this trade show of interest.
One good thing about trade shows is that they are normally held inside, so the weather is never much of an issue and the show goes on rain or shine, hot or cold. Trade shows are by far a great way to learn about different businesses and their services, products and opportunities. They have come a long way since the 90’s when they started coming around.
Coming from a family that has suffered, for many generations, from hemophilia I have always tried to donate blood and to encourage as many other people to donate blood as well. The last three places that I have worked at I managed to organize some pretty successful blood drives. The American Red Cross is always happy to drive their Blood Mobile to people that are willing to take their time and donate blood. There always has and always will be a tremendous need for blood.
I think more people know more about the concern of having a blood clot and all of the medicines that are available to thin people’s blood in order to keep from any other blood clots developing. But most people don’t that the hemophiliacs need the Factor #8 that is taken out of a good amount of blood donations because their blood has a hard time clotting. Hence the nickname “Bleeders” has come about, because is your blood won’t clot you will just continue to bleed, which has a devastating effect on people that are “Bleeders”
So every time I donate blood I get a great feeling of satisfaction in knowing that I am truly giving the gift of life to one or more people that need it to survive.
Now knowing that they make a cover for amplifiers that protect the amp from adverse weather was good information to know considering that my kid brother’s 21st birthday is coming up in late July. I think that this will be the perfect gift idea for him. It was really difficult finding the perfect Christmas gift for him last year, so this makes me feel better to know that I can get him a cool QSC k10 outdoor cover made of nylon fabric and mesh cover for temporary outdoor use for just under $50.
Giving someone a gift that you know that they will enjoy and use can make a big difference in a gift giving relationship. I know that I am sick and tired of getting baskets full of personal care products like bubble bath, oils, lotions, perfumes, spray and other stuff like that. I swear if I get another gift like that I will have a very hard time keeping my mouth shut. I don’t even like re-gifting that kind of stuff. A gift card would be a much better option, don’t you agree?
The Animal Planet is doing a wonderful job in bringing attention to the brutality being done to dolphins in many countries with their new show Blood Dolphins. I found this clip on YouTube.com and wanted to share it here. I hope more people watch this show and that it enlightens a lot of good people to the atrocities being done to thousands of dolphins each year.
