After some consideration, and not finding anything commercially, I decided to take the advice of custom sewn bags. Thankfully I am handy that way. Here's a shot of the finished products (all piled up in a mess).

Yeah, as I said, I did radio 20 years ago with minimal results. When I opened the 22,000 sq ft studio I did a radio promo with a 4 hour live broadcast in the studio.  It was strictly a flier, just for something different. It required a 6 month ad commitment from me which I did as the sponsor for the stationís Anniversary Couple of the Day. That got a lot of attention because the longest married couple that called in got perks. I never recouped the cost directly, but indirectly I believe it was an awareness builder. It probably was marginally successful.  But direct ads? No.

I can't imagine a radio ad paying off. Wonder if they did a trade?

Never in a million years would a radio (or TV) ad sway me to buy a product... in fact, it would do the opposite, as I'd assume they are a big smarmy business with advertising people and all that rather than a unique, one-off, boutique shop to whom doing really well on the photography is the difference between paying the mortgage or not.

I spent a bundle in PA, for nada.  Maybe times are changing; maybe they're desperate enough to try anything.

The biggest Dayton boudoir studio has started underwriting NPR Morning Edition on our local public radio station.

I wonder how this advertising will translate into ROI?

I found a baseball bat bag is good to carry light stands and umbrellas. It was pretty cheap (don't remember the price).

And Beethoven used the same 8 notes as I, when I play guitar and "write".

Duckworth Lewis!   No draw!   Would you like to explain that, Nannette? lol



Good grief! How *does* one explain a draw after playing for 5 days?? Maybe I'll give it a shot - just to see if I can make sense of it myself. :P

5 days later a draw?  And I thought baseball was slow at 4 hours! (unless it goes extra innings, but then that's only hours)

Both teams bat twice and bowl twice. Basically, you need to make as many runs as possible in your two innings and get the entire opposing team out in their second innings for less than you made.

If they don't make more runs and they are still have two batsmen playing after the final over, it's a draw. (How did I go, Jenny?)

Confused yet Jeff? :o
