Thank you for your patience as we worked to remove the files and nasty things left behind by the hacker that disrupted my site. It was turned into a pfishing site for a short while and sent many phoney emails to people trying to access their bank login information.
It is not back to perfect operation; there are still a few weird things happening and the site appearance is not what it should be, both inside and out. But we will work on it.
It is partly because of attacks like this from many unknown sources that has kept me and most of my family from doing any banking online. So, when I get an email from my bank I know it is a phishing trip. I get them on a regular basis from a wide range of sources.
I even get phishing emails from other people’s banks telling me how urgent is is to log into my account and fix a framis or two.
Note to my overseas friends: Today in the USA we celebrate the memory of all who died in service to our country.
It’s an especially important one for me since my Dad died on the beach at Iwo Jima in 1945. I attended my local flag-lowering ceremony in Northampton where a small group of neighbors and friends conducted the official raising of the US flag and then lowering it to half staff.
The actual event was conducted by our local Marine Corps League. I can’t explain the emotions that ran through me witnessing it. It was again chilling.
It was also made more special this year by the many members of the local National Cemetery Guardians, a volunteer group who help conduct veteran burial honors at the new, nearby Washington Crossing National Cemetery; I know many of them.
So, I think I have decided where my final resting spot will be when my turn comes. It seems, as an Army vet, that both I and my wife, Beth, can be put to final rest with some little pomp and ceremony there. Let’s hope it’s not soon!
I know that I was put here to get many things accomplished and to judge by the length of my To Do List, I may still be here in the 22nd Century!
Have a great Summer!
A REVIEW: Enchantment The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds, and Actions by Guy Kawasaki (On Sale today at your favorite book seller).
At the risk of redundancy, I found both the book “Enchantment” and its author’s, Guy Kawasaki’s, launch and promotional activities of it, enchanting. It is more than a Deming Model, however; way more!
Guy was like the energizer bunny with his emails, facebook promotion, tweets and coordinated efforts to get his latest book up front and directly in the public eye. This is the work of a master enchanter, evangelist and, yes, energizer bunny-at-large.
No wonder he is so well-known & respected; he promotes himself masterfully and for good reason, he’s brimming over with great ideas and experiences. Nothing wrong with that and every thing right!
Guy Kawasaki not only does it, but he shows by personal example how to do it.
The book shines on its own. A great “How To” and “Why” manual. It’s a must-have for anyone involved in marketing anything! Read this one to understand why Apple has such a fanatical following and why people matter and how to enchant them with your idea. Then take the quiz…think you read and understood it? Try again. I did.
You could make your dream into a similar reality. It’s what you’d hear if you rolled Deming, Dale Carnegie, Peter Drucker and Steve Jobs into one!
You could even make your present business enchanting, your employees into advocates and empower your customers to be your best references. Continue reading →
MeasurementMedia’s New Look & Features
The newest update to our website network is the new style of, and functions available at MeasurementMedia In Industry and Science as indicated in the image above. Key functions include ability to show videos and to be more easily viewed on iPhones and other “smart phones”.
This is all in addition to planning and tweaking the details of a number of the other network websites (and maintaining the workflow-i.e. daily news stories). We’ve made some demonstrable progress, thanks to the help of my sons – all of whom are far better versed in the workings of the Web than I. Continue reading →

Since the Gulf Oil Spill began nearly two months ago there has been an information overload in ever media outlet, including the web.
The US Government Agencies responsible for different aspects of the spill have been hard at work using their resources to aid in understanding what’s going on and what is likely to occur next. In spite of outcries about the inaction of the President and his administration, the people in the front lines were prepared to respond and they have.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have been regularly feeding real & forecast data to their efforts and their public websites.
Here’s today forecast from NOAA (You can download a larger version in PDF format by clicking on the link here and the one indicated below).
There’s much more on the NOAA website that is dedicated to the Deepwater Horizon Incident, Gulf of Mexico, such as:
