No NYC Terror Trials

Thank you Congress!  They are blocking any funding of Terror Trials in NYC so it appears that our country will not make the mistake of putting on that fiasco!

Here is the article, 'White House Considers Moving Trial'.

Warehouse Clearance Update

Warehouse Clearance Sale 308 672-3263 Scottsbluff Sash and Door.  Call Bill Moore 308 672-3263, that's 308 672-3263.

The response to this advertising has been phenomenal. Less than 30 minutes after our first radio ad aired, Bill had people in the shop saying they heard it on the radio.  Well, here's an update.... the response continues to be great and its really best to call Bill at 308 672-3263 if you are interested in taking a tour of all they have for sale there.  It takes 10-15 minutes to walk through the warehouse (if you don't get too sidetracked like I do almost every time).  Give Bill a call before all the good stuff is gone!

Radio Advertising combined with the Internet is a great way to get results.

Social Marketing

I resisted this craze for a long time.  In fact, I told people that social networks were a waste of time when it comes to doing serious business.  Then, in early 2009 I decided to go ahead and get a facebook account.  This was my first social network experience.  Now I have nearly 600 friends and we have acquired new business through facebook.

Now I am busy looking for more social networks to join in order to promote our business and our ministries.  Here is a working list of social networks that I know of.  Please submit others to me if I don't have them on this list.  Thanks everyone!

List of Social Networking Websites
Another one of the most popular sites is where users can post their own videos.  There are several other samples of sites like these as well.

Then you have websites that allow you to post Photos, Review Movies, Take Polls and lots of other things that allow you to post or list your company info.

There are also several websites that allow businesses or business professionals to post their profiles.  One leading example would be  There are several others and I wrote another article just on all those.

Here is a list of the Top 25 Social Networking Sites according to

Social Networking is something that you need to pay attention to but at the same time, caution yourself from spending too much time doing nothing but 'socializing'.

10 Biggest Lies of 2009

 On December 13, 2009 President Obama declared that he was not elected to help the “fat cats." But the cats got another version of that memo. A day later, 10 of them were supposed to partake in some White House face-time to talk about their responsibilities to the rest of the country, but only seven could make it. No-shows for the "very serious discussion" -- due to inclement New York weather or being too busy with internal bonus discussions to bother with the President -- were Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack and Citigroup Chairman Richard Parsons.

Yes, Obama inherited a big financial mess from the Bush administration – which inherited its set-up from the Clinton administration (financial recklessness, it turns out, is non-partisan) -- but he and his appointees have spent the year talking about fighting risk and excess on Wall Street, while both have grown.

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner patted himself on the back for making the "difficult and necessary” decisions of fronting Wall Street boatloads of money to cover its losses and capital crunch last fall. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke (a Bush-Obama favorite) was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for saving the free world as we know it. And Congress is talking "sweeping reform" about a bill that leaves the banking landscape intact, save for some minor alterations. For starters, it doesn’t resurrect the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933, which separated risk-taking (once non-government-backed) investment banks from consumer oriented (government-supported) commercial banks.

Meanwhile, Wall Street is restructuring (the financial equivalent of re-gifting) old toxic assets into new ones, finding fresh ways to profit from credit derivatives trading, and paying itself record bonuses -- on our dime. Despite recent TARP payback enthusiasm, the industry still floats on trillions of dollars of non-TARP subsidies and certain players wouldn’t even exist today without our help.

Wall Street’s return to robustness and Main Street’s continued deterioration are the main takeaways for 2009 that stemmed from the 2008 choices to flush the financial system with capital and leave the real economy to fend for itself. Lies that exacerbate this divide only perpetuate its growth. With that, here is my top 10 list of lies. Please consider adding your own, and let’s all hope for a more honest New Year.

Here are the 10 biggest lies about our economy in 2009

Email marketing seminar

Patricia Berry is speaking on Email and Social Marketing at the Gering Civic Center during the local NAIFA awards meeting. Andrea and I were invited by the current panhandle NAIFA president Jim Moseley of Moseley-McGill in Scottsbluff.  I was in the insurance business at one time in my life, so I knew alot of the agency managers, but we came to learn more about how the insurance business is using online marketing to enhance their bottom line.  Thank you for allowing us to sit in Mr. Moseley.  If anyone is interested in implementing email marketing, website optimization or any of the things she talked about, please let us know how we can help you locally.  We would be happy to work directly with Patricia and her company to get the most out of your online presence.

Radio Advertising Works!

We hear alot of good things about our radio and internet advertising.  We have been blessed by literally dozens of new websites in several states that came to us through the radio advertising. 

I was in church Sunday (teaching my Senior Adult Sunday School Class) and we were taking prayer requests or praises when Mrs. Moore shared with me that no more than 30 minutes after their radio ad ran, they had people in the warehouse.  I just put the opening grain and livestock markets up and they played on KOLT, KOAQ and Wild Country at 10am.  I mentioned that Scottsbluff Sash and Door was having a Warehouse Clearance Sale with lots of miscellaneaous items for sale.  The Moores said they were very happy with the response from the radio advertising.  This is what we work for...  To help people. 

Scottsbluff Sash and Door is going out of business so there are lots of things for sale at bargain basement prices. Visit and type in clearance sale.  Click on their banner and it will take you to a page with a map if you need it and a short list of items for sale.

Ranchers and Twitter

Here is a great article from the founder of, a dynamic social media portal modeled after the success of facebook.  It's really facebook for ranchers.  Check out this article about Twitter;

Posted: Wednesday, November 25, 2009 -

No doubt technology is moving fast... So fast most of us have a difficult time keeping up with it, especially those of us who make a living ranching. 

There are two main reasons ranchers aren't as quick to adapt and use technology:
1. Most ranchers spend their days (and often nights) in the corrals and pastures rather than at a desk.
2. Many benefits and uses of technology aren't immediately transparent to those who don't spend their days behind a computer.
I'd guess several reading this article haven't even heard of one of the latest rages, Twitter. I'd also venture to say those who have don't have much of an idea of what it is and how its technology can makes their lives better.
So, what is Twitter? In a nutshell, it's a tremendously simple process of sharing short ideas and messages (140 characters or less) through the Internet or your cell phone, at no cost, to those your connected with.
How's that for a simple explanation!
Better yet, how can Ranchers use this technology for their benefit directly?

Here are Five Ways:
1. We all want to keep in touch with our family and friends more, but often we're just too busy to make that call.
Twitter provides a quick and easy way to keep in touch with friends and family with your daily experiences that don't generally call for more formal communication - Even if they are half way around the world.
Here are a few examples: "Betsy finally had her calf - Nice looking heifer" or "Twelve more inches of snow today - Can't wait for Spring"
2. Those who use Twitter know many of the "tweets" they receive (your messages) are just your way of keeping in touch. Therefore, it's completely acceptable to have business contacts as followers to keep up with what is going on in your informal life.
Here are a few examples: "Last calf down - eight heifers and two bulls - going to be a great sale this fall" or "Finally decided to sell that old tractor - First $9,500 takes it"
3. Ever had a quick question while out in the field? The more followers you have on Twitter the quicker you'll get get help. Just grab your cell phone and 'tweet' away!
Here are a few examples: "What's the best way to get out from under a tractor wheel?" or "How can I keep deer out of my hay stacks?"
4. We've all had one of those days... stuck in traffic, gored by a bull, etc. The sage advice is to let it out! Rage to your Twitter followers rather than running your truck in to that guy that just cut you off and you'll feel better.
5. Ever stood in front of the movie theatre wondering if your about to waste 15 bucks? Send a quick tweet to find out if your better off waiting for it to come out on cable.
The uses of Twitter are endless, but all of them have an overriding factor... to keep in touch.
