The giant Christmas tree on Quantum of the Seas

It’s Thanksgiving Day onboard the beautiful Quantum of the Seas and I’ve already seen one guy walking around with a plush turkey on his head. The Pilgrims would be proud. Not wanting to be left out of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, I rearranged dining reservations for tonight so I can hit up the American Grill […]

The Solarium Pool on Quantum of the Seas

Day 3 on board the Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s (and the world’s) newest cruise ship and it’s another gloomy day full of rain, wind, thunder and lightening as we head towards our first port of call, Port Canaveral in Florida. While I’ve been very impressed with almost every aspect of the ship so […]

The Big Purple Bear on Quantum of the Seas

Day 2 onboard the world’s newest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas, has come and gone, but the “wows” keep on coming! It was another sea day as we make our way to Port Canaveral, FL for no other reason than… well, I can’t really think of any. Anyone who knows that area, […]

Royal Esplanade on Quantum of the Seas

After much anticipation, brought on by all the marketing hype surrounding Royal Caribbean’s newest ship, I’m finally onboard Quantum of the Seas for her inaugural sailing to the Bahamas. Admittedly I’m not “loyal to Royal” because I’m not a fan of mass-market cruise lines. I prefer much smaller ships than the 4,200 passenger Quantum or […]

Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas

By now you’ve probably seen the stories on the news about Royal Caribbean‘s newest ship, Quantum of the Seas. It cost nearly one billion dollars to build and is being called the world’s first “smart ship.” What makes it smart, who knows… but I do know it’s full of gadgetry and “wows” that marketing folks […]

The other day I was copied on a group email where the sender was passing along a video of someone or something named “Ted.” Since it was (Throwback) Thursday, I thought a frequent-flyer friend was sharing a video of United Airlines failed attempt at creating a low-cost, spinoff airline back in 2004. Then I thought […]

I first met Mary and Dan Schlenger from OVitaminPro.com back in 2007. They were customers of mine for a few years, but I never got to physically shake hands with them until they attended one of my eCommerce Boot Camps. They made the trek from Nevada to Pennsylvania to spend three days learning ways to […]

For the second time this week, I’m sitting here shaking my head at two news stories about the unwarranted killing of animals – one for sport, one disguised under the cloak of safety. Both of which have no consequences. The first comes from my home state, Florida, where two men, Keith Kelley and Kelly Sziy, […]

On Tuesday I had the pleasure of being a guest on Shawna Seigel’s eCom Experts talk show. Now throw me in front of a microphone and I’ll babble on about just about anything, but instead of talking about how many olives I prefer in my Martini, we discussed my third favorite topic – eCommerce. I’ll […]

Yeah, it’s been a bit since I’ve sat back and written a piece for my blog. I certainly hope you’ve missed me! But something tells me you haven’t. As Shakespeare, or someone like that once said, “you’ll miss me when I’m gone.” Over the past few weeks I’ve developed something that has been causing a […]
