MAKE 'EM LAUGH: SELLING HUMOR ONLINEWritten by Dave Bealer
Continued from page 1
There are literally millions upon millions of e-commerce web sites on Web today, yet a very small percentage of those are marketing humorous merchandise. Giving your business a sense of humor can really make it stand out and give you a special place in minds of your customers. Think for a minute about a few people that you genuinely like. Why do you like them so much? Most likely, one of reasons is because they make you laugh.
Great-selling humor items can range from stationary, to posters, to doormats, key chains, shirts, mugs, and a huge variety of other items. You don't need to be an expert on salesmanship, because your merchandise will speak for itself and compel people to buy. Most of all, you'll be associated with good times and great memories.

The Gingerbread NightmareWritten by Valerie Garner
Continued from page 1
Whew….new day, it’s a wonder what a little sleep will do ya. Now we make hard frosting that will act as glue to hold pieces of house together, time to build. Time for fun to begin, boy are we ready!
We begin assembling house, and half roof piece breaks in two on one of houses. On second house, we find pieces to not match correctly. On a third house, we overcome all these first two obstacles, and now have great difficulty getting props to hold house together while “glue” dries, and it’s repeatedly falling apart and causing oldest child to have a temper tantrum in frustration (mom too). Somehow through this fiasco, we end up with 1 viable house. (The others became, hard dog biscuit type things for family pet). Oh well, she needs her Christmas goodies too, right? We frosted house and each child decorated half. The end result? A $75. UGLY gingerbread house that only a grandma (with apologizes from mom), would take and not be too insulted by. But, we did accomplish one of our goals….it was a memory. A memory we fondly call “The Gingerbread Nightmare”.
