His eyes were clear, huge and beautiful. His fur was soft but with a bit of coarseness when rubbed the wrong way. The limbs thin and graceful and very muscular. His ears were soft and clean. He had a few hairs on his chin. He died quickly, within 30 seconds of being shot with a bow and arrow.
He weighed 225 pounds, had a 6 point rack. And he was not the biggest buck in the neighborhood.
I stroked his snout, ears and limbs, with affection and appreciation. And I checked him for ticks and found none.
I saw him up close yesterday. He looked just like his photo from a few weeks ago.
Felt his soft fur, smoothed his ears, looked into his big eyes and appreciated his life and magnificence. I stroked his limbs, admired his feet, touched his antlers. The buck I touched also had two notches in his right ear, just like this guy. And he had the same antlers, same number of points.
This is a good article until Dr. Joe England unleashes his remarks.
Joe is the town doctor in Jamestown, which is an island that has a growing tick problem, just like the rest of New England and other parts of the country and world.
Joe England says the town’s Lyme disease prevention committee, that he serves on, is doing nothing. The deer problem is apparently so out of control and there is no stopping the infectious disease from infecting us all. So there is not much anyone can do. (So, let’s not try.)
Prevention does not mean killing the deer. It is taking precautions so you don’t get bit in the first place.
Dr. England says, if you pull off the tick it is “not likely” that you have contracted Lyme or the other diseases that ticks transmit. This is so false. Glad he is not my doctor.
of consumers value a brand’s Facebook page more than its website.
This makes perfect sense.
Facebook is genuine, immediate, authentic, with real people behind the brand. Conversations, likes and comments are not scripted and don’t go through a company’s legal or compliance department.
Websites are written by copy writers, ad agencies and lawyers and they are approved by CEOs and upper management before going live. It can take months to get the website perfect. But then it is rarely updated. So you visit once and you’re done.
Facebook is interactive. Users feel their likes and comments are read and appreciated. And it it is fun, humorous, quick and entertaining.
If websites were interactive and fun I wonder what that might mean for a brand.
