Happy Mother's Day Mum

Most of us will be with our Mums today. If we can.

Not everyone is lucky enough to be with their Mum.

Some have passed on.

Today we think of our mums and thank them for all their sacrifices, all the love, all the hard work and determination to make us the people that we are.

If you can't see your Mum today, or any other day. Think of this.

"I wish you could see your mum today, but she is always with you in everything you do.

It's funny how each of our loved ones stay within our hearts and minds everyday.

Maybe a song, sight, sound or chore brings them back for a quick hello.

They're never far from our minds.

I wish you could be here Mum.

We're are only separated by distance. Not thought.

It's the same for those who have gone, passed on, or moved away.

They are just further away, we cannot travel to see them, but we will see them again, eventually.

So we carry on thinking of them, using what we have learned from them, to become better people ourselves.

Each time you think of Your Mum, know that she is thinking of you.

No matter how far, in this life or the next, you are in her heart and mind.

You always have been and always will be.
Near or far. Your Mum Loves You.

Thanks for Everything Mum."

Cold Callers Plan My Wedding UK - WHO?

Wedding Entertainers Beware.

I've had a lengthy call from a company called promising me "A Wonderful Business Opportunity" - DO NOT FALL FOR IT.

They have a website that has less on-line viability than my own. Yet the are charging from £249 for ads.

When I ask a caller "Are you selling advertising?" and they Reply "No, it's a business opportunity" Alarm bells ring.

"oh, but you will be the only service provider of your kind within the radius you pay for"

 Really? Then what kind of a service is that for the Bride to be? She's looking for the most suitable provider in her area and all she finds is the poor sap who's paid to be there. No one else.

"But that means the person who paid gets the gig, right?"

You mean you've not heard of Google? You've never looked at an Ad or Website and gone "Nah. Click"

If I find a "Directory Listing" and there is only One Result, I'm going to a better Directory.

I have checked them out. They've existed less than a year and the call centre that they have hired to promote them through listings, will tell you all sorts to sign up.

Do a search for "Plan My Wedding UK" and you would think they would be number one, right?

NOPE. Nowhere to be seen.

Look at the sites that do show up. They Have CONTENT. They Have A COMMUNITY.
These Jokers have nothing but sales people calling me and calling me RUDE becuase I ask Questions they cannot answer.

Don't waste your time.

If you are going to advertise anywhere, use a website that has thousands of visitors and a thriving community.  Like for example.

Not someone who is flogging links on an unheard of website.

I am so mad that these cold callers Lie to me and sometimes they don't know it. Because they are telling the lies that they've been told to say, thinking it's true.

Keep your money folks, don't get suckered.

But Hey.

Let me know if I am wrong. Tell me if you have found the Perfect Service Provider for your Wedding.

Of if you Advertise with them and you've go nothing but gig after gig of happy wedded folk.

I love a happy ending.
