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

Ridiculous Sunset Over Twinsburg

Sunset Over Twinsburg

When I came up with the idea for That’s Cleveland Baby I always intended it to be pictures & stories from not JUST downtown Cleveland, but also it surrounding areas.  That said, when it came time to choose a domain name for the site, www.thatsnortheastohiobaby.com or www.thatsclevelandandthesurroundingareasbaby.com didn’t quite have the ring to them that I was going for 🙂 In any case this is a pic that I snapped in Twinsburg (an eastern suburb of Cleveland … Continue reading

Overheard At Starbucks – Apple Is Awesome

Starbucks Logo

Just about every weekend, I head to Starbucks at least once (sometimes twice) to do some work.  I love the kids and Wife, but if I actually need to get some stuff done it’s pretty difficult.  Anyhow… I was sitting in Starbucks the other day and while I normally just do my own thing with my headphones in on this day I couldn’t help but overhear the conversation going on at the table next to … Continue reading

Running Out Of Gas In A Traffic Jam

Out Of Gas

So the other night I was driving home from work and I noticed that I was getting a bit low on gas. When I get below a quarter of a tank or so I start thinking about where/when I’m going to fill up next. (For iPhone users out there, check out the app GasBuddy. It’ll save you a TON of money at the pump.) I was running a bit late as the wife had to … Continue reading

My Version Of “Foodie”

Nachos From BW3

I have quite a few friends that I’d consider “foodies”.  They write awesome blogs, share reviews and tend to photograph the food they eat.  I’ve never really considered myself a food photographer and I’m certainly not a foodie with all the crap that I eat.  However… I was going through some recent pics on my phone and I realized that I’ve taken quite a few food pictures over the recent months. These nachos were free … Continue reading

Chewie & Crewie: Some Quality Time With The C-Man

Yummy!

Once you have that second child your alone time with either one of them starts to really be difficult to come by.  Recently, the stars have aligned and I’ve gotten to hang out with my little man one on one.  The rest of this post is just going to be some pictures and videos with my comments.  If that sort of thing doesn’t interest you feel free to move along 😉  However, if you’re interested … Continue reading

5 Random Photos From My iPhone

I recently got a new Verizon iPhone 4 for work purposes so I’m officially out of the Blackberry nation.  I have to say that I enjoyed my Blackberry but now that I’m used to it this iPhone is just SO… MUCH… BETTER.  There are a ton of iPhone reviews out there so I won’t bother going into it here.  The biggest upgrade that I see from my Curve 2 is the camera.  This thing is … Continue reading

Thoughts For Monday

IU Football

The goddamn jackhammer is back.  We’ve had a week of silence so this comes as a very unwelcome shock to the system.  All I can say is this better be the best restaurant in downtown Cleveland when they’re done. Mondays suck.  They suck even worse when Sunday night is bad. Mobile devices are now officially the bane of my existence.  This includes cell phones, BlackBerrys, etc.  Sure they’re nice when you REALLY need to get … Continue reading

Monday’s Pet Peeves

Pet Peeve

Burger King Square Pants – come on… maybe I’m just showing my age and becoming a grumpy old man, but there’s no way that Burger King should be using “Baby Got Back” as one of their theme songs in a commercial.  Not only are they using it in their commercial, but it’s being done to promote a Sponge Bob toy tie in.  Do people really think this is OK?  What’s next…  A Nine Inch Nails: … Continue reading
