It sounds like Bourbon week at Hi-Time in Costa Mesa.
This week, Hi-Time will play host to two special events. In celebration of Bourbon (American Whisky) they’re hosting two Bottle signings this week.
And if you’ve never been over to Hi-Time, this gives you another good excuse to go.

Maker’s Mark Bottle Signing
Thursday, March 12th from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Maker’s Mark Master Distiller Kevin Smith and Distillery Diplomat April Gallegos will be at Hi-Time Wine Cellars to sign your favorite collectible bottle of Maker’s Mark and answer any questions you have about bourbon.
BEER DOES A BODY GOOD
Research shows alcohol can aid bone health
Forget milk. New research shows alcohol is good for your bones.
Scientists at Tufts University found that moderate drinking seems to prevent loss of bone mineral density (BMD) associated with aging. Bone loss can lead to osteoporosis, which can lead to increased risk of fractures and injury.
The researchers think silicon in beer might be the reason they found stronger bones in men who drink one to two beers or the equivalent in alcohol every day.
Beer has even more health benefits.
Its no secret that newspapers are struggling. Whether its slow response to our changing times or the growing popularity of the internet, as an advertising and marketing professional, I argue its a change in communication and the way we get information today, that is killing the newspapers. Newspapers are failing because their mode of communication is old fashioned and out of style. Who wants to read through 500 news stories to see if one might be of interest?
Online vs. Offline News
There are a few common themes to why this downturn is happening, slow response to change by big newspaper corporations and the growing popularity of the internet are just a few. Newspapers have been slow to innovate as eBay, Craigslist, Monster, Google and myriad ad networks have sprouted, thrived and stolen away online customers. Digg, Reddit, Newsvine and others are experimenting with community selection of news, while newspapers pay little more than lip service to online reader involvement.

FORTUNE 100 Top Companies to Work For
Take a look at the list:
Google tops the list, profitable and growing, and the services they provide are FREE. Sure, they have services they charge for but their main business, search, email, etc. is free. That reminds me of an article I’ve mentioned before, from Wired Magazine: Free, Why $0.00 is the Future of Business (see the article at this link and you don’t have time to read the whole thing now, at least watch the video):
I found this story about a football player who was cut from the Detroit Lions at the beginning of this football season. The Lions are a team who would go on to lose every game this year and finish 0-16, something no other team had ever done.
Within a week he signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers and is now a Super Bowl Champion.
Sean McHugh and Willie Parker
Sean McHugh had just survived final cut day with the Detroit Lions, meaning he was all but assured another year in professional football. He hoped to start at fullback and would play for the league minimum – about $520,000 for his experience level. But just before the first practice in September, he was summoned to the office of team president Matt Millen. He knew the drill. He was released.
Something popped out of this story at me. Of course there are the obvious things like “never give up hope” and “things always work out for people who work hard.” But there is something else hidden in these few lines –
Three days later he was signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the season. He’s been mostly a reserve fullback, making the most of his chances, doing the dirty work of blocking. He’s marveled at the culture of success that the Steelers organization has established.
“There is an expectation when you become a Pittsburgh Steeler that you’re going to win,” he said. “And anything less than that is not acceptable. In Detroit it was like you were hoping to win.”
“A door closed,” McHugh said, “and a world opened.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers foster a CULTURE OF SUCCESS. During these challenging times we have to remember that we also have a lot of success, experience and talented people to be proud of. We can’t lose sight of our own culture of success, and be sure we’re pushing forward and making positive things happen every day. Good things will happen for people who work hard.
We are an industry leader, one of the best at what we do. We should always remember that.
