A truly brilliant ad campaign

This is brilliant.

Every City, Town and neighborhood in the country is trying to get people to move to their space. Louisville has realized that they don't want everyone in the world to move to their city. Really if 1% of the people that watched these videos checked out the possibilities of moving to Louisville, this campaign would be a huge success.

I love ads that get really close to crossing the PC line but don't create an ad just for that purpose. Remember the Quiznos ads with the little rats? No kidding I have not eaten at Quiznos since!

Scuba Diving

Cody really pulled a fast one on me today. He sold me passes for Kansas scuba diving. Like an idiot, I bought them.
Scuba diving in Cheney lake wasn't that horrible, I suppose. I got a chance to see a lot of catfish and white perch. The downside is that I've got this smell on my that I just can't wash off. It's kind of a cross between a toilet and anything within a five-block radius of Long John Silvers.
The trip actually peaked my interest in scuba diving, though. I've since gone to Adventure Sports in Wichita to buy all sorts of really cool scuba diving equipment so that someday when I get to take a vacation, I can go somewhere worth seeing. Adventure Sports will help me with that part of it too. They specialize in setting up scuba trips.
Anything would be better than Cheney lake.

I live in an upstairs apartment, so I don't have any yard to speak of. But my best friend is planning on tilling up his yard and planting new grass before it gets too cold. I've suggested a few times for him to use a hydroseeder from Kincaid Equipment.
I think he's softening up to the idea.
We'll see if I can persuade him and swing his business toward Kincaid Equipment.

Soccer Goals Needed

All the excitement surrounding the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup in China has got me wanting to buy that soccer goal that my daughter has been begging me for.

I have been watching for updates regularly on the team after watching the NIKE Ads, where they brag about "The Greatest Team You've Never Heard Of". They are definitely worth watching, if you can have someone tivo it for you.

We've been clearing some of our property out to set up a mini-soccer field, and mini-football field, depending on which kid wants to use it that day, and we needed a neat way to mark off the field lines. I found this Spray Paint Line Marker at Future Pro. If you are concerned about safety, they have these great Soccer Goal Padding (something I didn't think was necessary right up until my daughter filled in as goalie a couple weeks ago, and dove for a ball, and ran her head right into the soccer goal).

Future Pro carries all kinds of sports items, go online to their website and check them out. They have made alot of customers VERY happy with their low prices and reasonable shipping rates.
