Now, it’s the A-rena

Yes, it is true, the old O-rena, the former TD Waterhouse Centre, the “Arena in Orlando” will become Amway Arena.
No, our licensing agreement will not require Stuff the Magic Mascot to toss samples of SA8 out to fans. Nor will we replace official game programs with reprints of Consumer Reports.
Sure, we […]

Slip-slidin’ away

Haven’t forgotten about all of you. In fact, we were thinking about you on our drive in this morning, through a West Michigan ice storm that had cars slewing around like tipsy otters dancing in an over-waxed ballroom. Not that you remind us of otters. Or that you’re tipsy.
Really, we need to work on our […]

Lending

Today’s Grand Rapids Press mentions our company lending a hand to stock new library books in the Grand Rapids Public Schools.
Seems like only yesterday, you were sifting through card catalogs, immersed in some far, far away tome between towering stacks. Even if today’s youth seem to prefer MySpace over “My Side of the Mountain“, […]

Come on down!

What a great surprise to open today’s New York Times and see this article offering tips on a 36-hour getaway to our hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Prominently featured are the area’s many works of sculpture along the Grand River and at Meijer Gardens — though we, of course, turned our focus to the nice […]

Back on the block

Finally, a chance to return to talking about business. Crain’s Detroit Business recently published a special fall supplement, “Living and Investing in the D,” about, well, living and investing in Detroit. And there, on the inside back cover, was a nice compliment: a full-page ad from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, headlined, “Start-ups have always […]

Wired

We were pleased to see James Prichard’s corporate background story hit the wires this afternoon. One of the things that we constantly struggle with…is the complexity of this company, its business model, its product offerings, and its personalities. And that’s without the extra noise and controversy that’s been kicked up around the Michigan governor’s race. […]

New plate special

Never stopped to think, really, about where we’d like the government to put our picture. Postage stamp good, of course; Post Office wall bad.
But our picture on… a license plate?
Yep. Uh-huh. Yeah, buddy. Says so right here.
When the state of Michigan phases out its old blue plates next year, the new plate will feature a […]

It’s a beautiful day

We’d like to welcome our new friends and colleagues from Gurwitch Products, the Texas home of the Laura Mercier line of skin care and cosmetics. (Read the news of our acquisition of this terrifically talented team.) We’re happy to have you with us.
What was the old Lyle Lovett line?
That’s right — you’re not from Texas
But […]
