Olive love Mediterranean Grill!

I attended an event last night associated with the Chicago Social Media Marketing Group. It was held at Olive Mediterranean Grill at 111 W. Illinois, here in Chicago. There we met Mr. James Gray, VP of Operations. He discussed many aspects of the business and how he uses social media for growth and success. He is a very fine presenter who believes much as I do and in keeping things real. I’m not just saying this because of the delicious food offered to us! OMG! And speaking of OMG, I have to add that I love the business’ website address, http://eatomg.com/.  😉

PS: There is a possibility of Olive selling wine in the future! For now, I am told that BYOB is welcome.

Color Me Happy, Color YOU Happy!

Check out this great deal by my favorite hairstylist/colorist Jon-David (J-D), also known as @mafiahairdreser and @SalonSpaChat on Twitter. I love this guy and his talent so much! J-D is so attentive and caters to his clients’ needs. I highly recommend all men and women get the J-D experience and book an appointment with him! No, this isn’t an ad post. He isn’t paying me. In fact, he doesn’t even know that I am sharing this info with all of my loyal followers. 😉 I just think that J-D is so great and I love what he does for me, that I want to share him with you too!

An Open Letter: Please, I need your help!

Please forgive my plea, but I seriously need your help. In less than two days I will walk ten times around the Chicago Bears Soldier Field to fundraise for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I have increased my goal to $500 and have a long way to go to reach it! It will be a long, and probably painful walk this Saturday at the event because of my rheumatic issues and edema, but it will be so *worth* it! I feel the love for St. Jude, and these children and families who they help. Since opening in 1962, St. Jude has developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent to 80 percent today. St. Jude doesn’t just focus on childhood cancers, but also HIV / AIDS, and other catastrophic illnesses. St. Jude treats the child patient and the family to ensure care and wellness of the child. My past health care work history understands the importance of St. Jude’s efforts and how much these very sick children need to be well.

I’m so impressed by the cancer research being done at St. Jude that I’m participating in the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk. this Saturday, November 23, and I need your support to help me reach my new, updated, fundraising goal of $500. I have just TWO days left and a long way to go to reach that goal!

Will you please help me support St. Jude by donating today at http://walk.stjude.org/annmariewalsh?

St. Jude speeds its research discoveries directly from its labs to doctors and scientists everywhere.

    The amazing @Ramon_DeLeon does it again!

    Big thank you hugs to Ramon DeLeon for his donation of a fantastic pizza party for everybody living here at Deborah’s Place – Marah’s! The pizzas arrived on time and all 30 women feasted on the rare treat supplied by Ramon. All had a great time and greatly appreciate his generous–and delicious–donation. The food didn’t last long, everybody was so hungry.

    I can’t believe how awesome Ramon is supplying pizza for so many people! And he regularly supplies pizza for area events–it’s unbelievable! The man travels to speak at networking events as well–he is always on the go. Wherever he is, always focuses on excellent customer service at his Domino’s stores. Ordering pizza has never been easier! Just call or tweet! Ramon, thank you so much for sharing yourself and your pizza with so many grateful and hungry people. We ❤ you!
