  1. Hey I came across your blog while I was googling something. Small world, but I'm a '02 UD grad (MKT) too. I'm orignially from the Cleveland area and I lived in the Warehouse District for two years (Worthington Square-St.Clair Ave). I loved it down there! I now live in Charlotte, NC and am enjoying the warmer weather :) I'll have to check your blog out from time to time to read what's going on in Cleveland. Thanks!

  10. For a "Cleveland's A Plum" t-shirt, you might want to try checking out a store called Big Fun in Coventry. Big Fun is an old-school toy store and if you can't find the t-shirt you can probably find the Transformers or Star Wars action figures that your mom threw away.

  19. I think the board of love is pretty much what a girl does with her best friends- taken to the professional level.

    I'm sure they were just having fun with the presentation of being professional- they mentioned it was what they did at the bar anyways.

    I do however see a Romantic Comedy coming out of this. I need to offer them an option quick!

  40. Although the title isn’t very creative, Vincent van Gogh’s Self-Portrait without Beard is certainly one of the most notable paintings of all time. While Van Gogh has painted many portraits before, this is the most notable because it’s one of the few that depicts him without a beard. Additionally, having sold for $71.5 million in 1998, it is one of the most expensive paintings ever sold.

  42. If you run a small business, outsourcing your IT needs is probably your most cost-effective means of supporting your computer systems. Even if you're personally qualified to maintain the systems yourself, your time is likely much better spent running your business rather than monitoring backups and troubleshooting buggy desktops.

  44. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
