We haven’t done a Best Of the Web in awhile and have some great posts piling up that we’d love to share with you.
This is an oldie but a goodie. Peter Shankman, an expert in the social media world, wrote The Greatest Customer Service Story Ever Told, Starring Morton’s Steakhouse. As most of us are customers of various retail establishments, you can definitely enjoy this post from that perspective – it really shows how amazing, above and beyond customer service will bring you good karma.
There is so much negative garbage circulating out there about celebrities and reality “starts” – who is cheating, who is getting a divorce, who is fighting – that this article about Bill and Giuliana Rancic finally expecting a child made me smile. They’ve gone through a lot to have a baby and have been sharing their story of infertility which then changed into a story of Giuliana being diagnosed with breast cancer. They are doing great and now have a baby coming – this is the kind of story we like to read about in the “tabloids”!
The past few years we have written about a Syosset tween and how she holds an annual carnival to fundraise for Sunrise Day Camp, the only dedicated day camp in the nation for children with cancer. This summer, a Syosset teacher (and Long Island dad of 3 kids) will also be fundraising for Sunrise Day Camp – by biking across the country! 64 days and 3,700 miles from San Diego to Sunrise Day Camp’s grounds right here on Long Island (Wheatley Heights), covering between 60 and 110 miles per day. His first blog post went up on Syosset Patch recently – You May Be Right, I May Be….
As our weather is totally crazy getting warmer and we get into summer, short trips are things that so many families are looking for. Our friend The Mama Maven recently wrote a great Guide for What to Do in Mystic, CT With Kids. If you are trying to think of how to keep busy, read this great guide.
