Bobby and the Strays…

http://www.bobbiandthestrays.org/

While attending a networking event recently I met Roberta “Bobbi” Giordano, the founder of Bobbi and the Strays. She recently took over the animal shelter in Freeport. I have been told that this shelter was in terrible state until Bobby took over. Read about it HERE

I can’t help by adopting a dog or a cat myself, because I am highly allergic to all animals. If I was not allergic I would not hink twice about giving Charlie or Bronx a loving home. BUT I can help by telling you about this great organization.

If you are thinking of choosing a dog or a cat as a pet, go see Bobby and her staff at the Freeport Animal Shelter (2 Rider Place) instead of going to the pet store. There are so many animals waiting for someone to give them a hug and a warm bed.

You can also find them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bobbi-and-the-Strays/ or watch some of the videos at http://www.youtube.com/bobbiandthestrays

The Rules in the Networking Playground

My friend and great business networking events organizer Adrian Miller wrote a great article on the Rules of Networking.

Every entrepreneurs should read this!!

More than ever, networking has become an essential skill for every business person. Taking the time to meet others in your industry and discover ways to help them and how they can help you can be both rewarding and lucrative. Unfortunately, not everyone has learned how to network effectively, and yes, many out there are not playing well in the networking playground.

Could this be about you?

And while we are at the subject, Action Coach has a great  article too  Top-Tips-for-Effective-Networking

Is There a Unique Gift Under $15 That’s Eco-Friendly and Gives to Charity???

The Answer: It’s My Bag!

It’s My Bag is a redesigned clothing bag that is both a hamper and clothes carrier all in one! To give an example, one use for this Bag is dry cleaning and like a grocery bag, It’s My Bag eliminates the dry cleaning plastic that we now dump in our landfills.

http://www.ItsMyB.com

Also, at It’s My B, Inc. they believe in giving to those in need.
Currently for the Holidays, we have a “Giving Back” proceeds donation drive benefiting 2 pre-selected charities. The first is a charity for helping women with cancer, the second is a military support charity.

With each purchase, your name will be entered into the Grand Raffle for a reusable It’s My Bag autographed by a growing number* of public figures.
* A founding member of the Priceline.com team, the creator of Tony & Tina’s Wedding on Broadway, New York Democratic Senator Charles Schumer, Republican LI-NY Executive Ed Mangano (Green/Sustainable is Universal!), 2 members of a hot new rock band, 2 Long Island based business leaders with multi-national connections, an up-in-coming small business expert/author, Steve Madden of Madden Shoes.

Another reason to eat chocolate

Like we actually need a reason, but here it is: two chocolate bars a week may help reduce your risk of stroke by up to 20 percent, according to Swedish researchers.

Just make sure the benefits son’t outweigh the risks. Too much of a good thing can increase your chances of weight gain and diabetes. But during the holidays in particular, it’s a nice excuse to ask for the gift of chocolates ;-)

Shen Yun returning to Lincoln Center in January…

Shen Yun presents colorful and exhilarating performances of classical Chinese dance and music.

A performance by Shen Yun is a presentation of traditional Chinese culture as it once was: a study in grace, wisdom, and the virtues distilled from the five millennia of Chinese civilization.

Backing up by 5000 years Chinese Culture, Shenyun’s performance is a magnificent show which helps you enjoy and experience the authentic traditional Chinese culture.
