re: Experiences with Social Media Marketing for Business? - Queen
I do PR. Part of my job is helping small businesses with social. Whether it works for you totally depends on what type of business you have and who your audience is. Low barrier to entry (like a restaurant) or something that can be purchased online are great. High barrier, narrower audiences...

re: How do I get my kid to quit biting - Queen
I bit mine back, hard enough to hurt, and it slowed her down. Didn't stop. We did time out and spanking when appropriate, and it slowed, but didn't stop. You need to have help from the daycare. If they aren't willing to work with you, find a new daycare - either one with fewer kids per classroom...

re: Getting a 3 year old to eat vegetables - Queen
Rice some cauliflower and mix it up with the bread crumbs for the coating when you make him some chicken tenders. Give him a fruit smoothie with a little spinach puréed in. Not joking, put zucchini or carrots in brownies. Done right he won't know. Then be patient. He'll get over it. My sister su...

re: Willamette Valley Trip - Queen
Of course you're going to do a wine tour. So my advice is to do this wine tour: [link=(http://backcountrywine.tours/)]Backcountry[/link]. I did it a few years ago. Guy does door-to-door pickup and dropoff. He goes to smaller wineries that are family owned (like 7500 or fewer bottles/year) for th...

re: First baby purchases - Queen
[quote]I have the one where you can talk into it and the kids can hear. I love being able to tell them "if I have to come up there one more time...." [/quote] :lol: Ours has that feature, but I haven't tried it. I think it may scare her right now because she's only 18 months. Friend used it o...

re: First baby purchases - Queen
[quote]video monitor is awesome[/quote] Second this. Check the radius of it before you buy, though. Our house isn't very big, but the monitor won't catch signal on our patio. So I also had to get a sound monitor that would reach farther. :banghead: The video monitor is good for not going in th...

re: First baby purchases - Queen
Haven't read every post in the thread, but I am a mom! - Nursing a kid is beneficial to their health and your wallet. Try it. - Get the infant car seat that clicks into the base. Bases are cheap. You can use that seat for a while. When you're ready for a convertible seat once your kid gets big...

re: Favorite Places in Memphis - Queen
Seeing mention of Raiford's - go if you can. But not before at least 11/11:30 pm. It is dead before that. Also when you buy your 40s at the bar (because that is how they sell beer) don't bring it on the dance floor or the bouncers will like body slam you because the floor lights up and they don't wa...

re: Favorite Places in Memphis - Queen
What area of town are you staying in? Central BBQ - barbecue nachos on house made chips (you have to ask for the house made! They default to tortilla chips) Rendezvous is overrated and crowded. Skip it. Flight is amazing. Call now if you expect to get a reservation. Place books solid on ra...

re: Spirit airlines - Queen
[quote]there is a phone number that exists (of course I lost it) where they will put you on a competitor's flight to get you out of there sooner if you complain loudly enough.[/quote] Uhh when was this? I got canceled in 2015 and they did jack shite to help. They won't even rebook their own flight...

re: Punta Cana - Anyone know how bad the Zika Virus is down there? - Queen
Agree with the women in this thread. My sister asked husband and I to go on a Caribbean vacation with her and her husband this month. We've been trying, so I said no because of the possibility I'd be pregnant. Not worth the risk, IMO. We can go later when we're done having kids. ...

re: Advice on renting a car to drop off in another location - Queen
Being a loyalty member helps your ability to negotiate. Only other thing is what others mentioned - trying to get a deal if you're helping them out by moving a car to somewhere else it needs to be. Husband and I wound up in Dallas because of weather once and had to drive to Houston. We actually ...

re: Vote to change TOPS to need based or ACT at least 30 FAILS - Queen
[quote]When I started LSU in fall of 2006, I was coming from Mississippi, so I was out of state. I realize how bad and expensive tuition is now compared to even then, but I made a 29 and I had a full ride even being out of state. I think I still netted 2 grand a semester in scholarship money into my...

re: Brawl breaks out at Fort Lauderdale Airport after Spirit Airlines cancels flight - Queen
[quote]3-4 hours just to get to the front of the line for them to tell you they will help you in NO WAY whatsoever.[/quote] Par for the course. Spirit is hands down the worst airline I have ever had the displeasure to deal with. They'll cancel for almost any reason, not add flights to accommodate...

re: Anybody ever bought a print from the Advocate? - Queen
[quote]Only complaint is that they aren't the same size. [/quote] The older ones are bigger because the Advocate shrank the actual size of the paper to save money at some point. My husband has all the baseball championships and the 2009 one has a much wider mat in the frame. OP, if you're buy...

[quote]Unfortunately for this mayoral race, Hunters voting demographic all live outside of the city limits... inside the city, it's 50/50. Obviously it's going to be tight.

re: Secrets the Vine cancun - Queen
The restaurants are good for the most part. For breakfast, just do the buffet thing. Do not bother with anywhere else. The only restaurant we really didn't like was the Mediterranean one on a rooftop balcony. Nice atmosphere, not great food. For any restaurant, it is worth coming in a little early t...
