I Don't Like Beer - Just Beer Commercials

Wow. This commercial is hilarious. I study advertising because of my business (I sell various auto parts) and one of the things I always have to watch is how targeted my advertising is. The beauty of things is that I can be very, very targeted in my ads. You're looking for what I have? Search for it, and you'll find it.

Companies like Budweiser don't have that luxury. They have to make commercials to create demand. Let's face it, if you're honest beer tastes horrible (just like all alcohol) and you don't need it. Thus, people like me who will never drink beer get hilarious ads to giggle at.

And this one is a giggler.

Maybe, Just Maybe, I've Found a Church

When I moved to Memphis, I didn't look for a permanent church home since I didn't think I would be here long term. I've visited a lot of churches (probably over 70 since I've been here), and had one that I spent more than my fair share at, but it just didn't feel like home at any of them. Ironically, there was one that I thought about trying at first that I didn't because a girl I knew from Minnesota moved down here and went there. Silly, huh?

Well, Sarah and I tried it out today, and we're going to attend again this evening. I'm thinking of making it my church home - it is First Assembly of God of Memphis. At least I think that's what they call themselves!

Anyways, here's hoping I can get plugged in.
