Wordless Wednesday...My brush with Fame and the Green Bay Packer Super Bowl Trophy!!!

Being a Minnesotan its out in your blood to be a Vikings Fan, 
but when Jon Hoese got drafted by our boarder rival the Green Bay Packers, 
I became a fan!  Who wouldn't be a fan of any NFL team if you saw 
your last name on the back of a Football Jersey!

Above you will see me with Sharon and Jon Hoese and our relative from California!!! Oh yeah and those things behind us, 
ya they are the Super Bowl Trophies, All FOUR of them!!!

We all got to see Jon play in the last preseason Green Bay Packer game on the 50 yard line, gain access to a secret door that lead to the locker room where there was a chef that would make us whatever we wanted and this is where we found the trophies and of course Jon !  

Thank you Sharon and Jon Hoese for my once in a lifetime opportunity!  I had the time of my life and am truly honored that you let me be part of it!

Thirsty Thursday....Drink Recipe # 9 Playoff Punch

This recipe is for a Playoff Punch that was originally created to celebrate the New York Yankees successful bid to make it into the 2009 playoffs.  Now I saw this is for all of us Football Mom's and Dad's who's kids teams made it to the playoff's.  Its time for us to celebrate too!!!!
It brings together two of Tommy Bahama's rums, a white and a gold, mixes it with a few tropical juices. The Playoff Punch is very similar to the newer, pineapple version of the Mai Tai. For baseball fans this drink can bring the tropics into the post season to cool things down when the games start heating up.


  • 2/3 parts Tommy Bahama Golden Sun Rum
  • 1 Part Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum
  • 1/3 part premium orange liqueur
  • 1 3/4 parts pineapple juice
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 3/4 parts orange juice
  • 2 dashes grenadine


  1. Pour all ingredients except Tommy Bahama Golden Sun rum into a shaker with ice.
  2. Shake sharply.
  3. Pour into a glass filled with ice.
  4. Carefully float the dark rum on top.

Social Media Breakfast #40

Last Friday I finally made it to Social Media Breakfast!  I have been following those folks for years but sense I live over an hour away from most of the events I usually just listen to them from the comfort of my desk at home via twitter.  Last week the topic was Community Management and because that is really what I do I really wanted to join in all the fun.  

The two panel experts were:

Lisa Grimm (@lulugrimmDigital Brand Manager at Mall of America.  You can check out her blog here COMMUNICATIONS PASSIONISTA there she share all the in's and out of Communication Management. 

Meg Knodl (@DotMeg)Senior Librarian at Hennepin County Library Communications and Community Engagement. Here blog Work with Meg must be somewhat of a work in progress.  I didn't find much there but she a "Follow the Rules" girl so maybe she just doesn't share much.  I found her to be very interesting and very nice, it seems like she is most active on twitter, so I suggest you converse with her there.

Talk about Community Managers from two very different ends of the spectrum, maybe thats what really attracted me to the event in the first place, either way it was AWESOME!  Even though it almost turned into a Jerry Springer show there for a minute!!!

Anyways, they both gave away great ideas, tips and mentioned awesome tools that they use everyday on.  I have yet had time to check any of them out but I have downloaded boxcar for my iPhone, just like all the other Social Media attendants did that day.  Once I open it up and set it all up and figure it out I will report back my findings.

Well thats all for now, hopefully I will be attending more SMBMSP in the future!
