Seven Days, Seven Black and White Photos

Last year one of my friends tagged me in one of these Facebook challenges where I was supposed to, for seven days, post a new black and white photo every day. The photos were to contain no people and provide no explanation. One of these photos popped up in my timeline the other day and brought back some good memories. Here they are. Seven Days, Seven Black and White Photos. No people and no explanation. … Continue reading

My Twitter Conversation With The Hulkster

One of the reasons I love Twitter is because you can “interact” with people you’d never run across in your regular life. Case in point… I tweeted at Hulk Hogan the other day with an image of a bad ass tattoo that I ran across on Instagram from user @wrestlingtattoos. Lo and behold, the Hulkster responded… and made my day. Not sure how long these tweets will be out there, but here’s my original tweet … Continue reading

A Stroll Through My Instagram Timeline

But You're A Horse

I’m a big fan of Instagram. It’s not a coversation like Twitter, it’s not full of quizzes like Facebook. It’s just pure “photography”. Depending on who you follow, your timeline may be silly, raunchy, serious or anything in between.

With Friends Like This, Who Needs A Prius

Badass Prius

Took the Wife’s van into Toyota for some (overpriced) service this morning.  We thought it was going to be a warranty covered minor issue and it turns out it’s a $1,300 water pump.  Not happy… to say the least.  But I digress. When I was asked what I wanted as a rental car I said “whatever’s biggest” (TWSS).  I was presented with a shiny new Prius Hybrid. I made the mistake of sharing this photo … Continue reading

The Best Use Of Social Media… Ever

A Personal Note From The Staff Of The Westin St Francis

I’m a big user of social media.  I use it to keep in touch with family and friends, share information for business purposes, build brands for my clients, etc.  If you don’t follow me on Twitter (@406Northlane) please do!  (Though, I can’t promise that I won’t offend you at some point 🙂 )  Also, have you checked out the 406Northlane Facebook page and “liked it”?  I could keep plugging… but I digress… I was recently on a … Continue reading

Bryan Adams And The Beer Aisle

Bryan Adams & The Beer Aisle

So I was walking through the grocery store this evening picking up a few things that The Wife emailed me to bring home.  After I’d gone through my list and gleefully singing, “A loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter!” on my way to checkout, I came across the beer aisle.  If you’ve read my stuff or follow me on Twitter you know I’m a big fan of beer so … Continue reading
