“Well, I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk” – Bruce Springsteen  Miguel Silas plays guitar at Los Tres Magueyes in Rolesville every Wednesday night.  I asked him what kind of music he plays (banda, ranchera, tejano?) and he said, “If I see guys in baseball caps and boots I play country music.  If I see couples together I play love songs.” Fair enough.  H*A*P*P*Y  W*E*E*K*E*N*D !! #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #durhamnc #rolesvillenc #design #gfx #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #mexicanfood #mexicanrestaurant #banda #ranchera #tejano #couples #baseballcaps #lovesongs #countrymusic #magueyes #guitar #brucespringsteen #thunderroad
“And I can’t wait to get on the road again.” -- Willie Nelson  So, I labored on this Labor Day – and the new Durham magazine is done, and off to the printer.  Finished.  Stick a spork in it. (Back next week – Emerald Isle here I come, one day early)! #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #bullcity #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #vacationtime #ontheroad #finished #spork #layout #emeraldisle #thebeach #willienelson #ontheroadagain
“If I stay here trouble will find me If I stay here I'll never leave If I stay here trouble will find me I believe” – The National … but, in a good way. 🍺 Finished up sales yesterday in Durham with a Growler Grlz renewal.  Wrapping up lay-out this weekend.  Magazine goes to print on Tuesday morning.  I go to Emerald Isle Tuesday noon.  H*A*P*P*Y 3-DAY W*E*E*K*E*N*D ! (Yes, I like to go to the beach when everyone else goes back home). #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #emeraldisle #growler #growlers #craftbeer #taproom #trouble #labordayweekend #thenational #seaoflove

“You have to stay in school. You have to. You have to go to college. You have to get your degree. Because that's the one thing people can't take away from you is your education. And it is worth the investment.” – Michelle Obama  Back to School and a beautiful day in Asheville, NC yesterday.  Spent the afternoon hanging curtain rods and shelves, and the evening with friends and family downtown. (Bottom left:  daughter Sarah –- rising sophomore, art student, also works as a hostess/food runner – soon to be server – at the wickedly tasty Bar Taco in downtown Asheville.  Center right: son Mac -- rising junior working towards a finance/business degree and moonlights at the Asheville Autobell washing cars in his free time.  Go visit both businesses, be nice to my kids, and have a brilliant rest-of-your weekend!). #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #ashevillenc #uncasheville #asheville #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #bartaco #autobell #investment #carwash #friendsandfamily #education #michelleobama #flotus
Here come the man from the stars We don't know why he go so far And keep on marching along Beating his drum  Thugs and sticks and bats and balls For nuclear dicks with dialect drawls They come from a parking lot town Where nothing lives in the Sun  Don't make me a target Don't make me a target When you reach back in his mind Feels like he's breaking the law There's something back there he got That nobody knows  He never claimed to say what he says He smells like the inside of closets and stairs The kind where nobody goes  Don't make me a target Don't make me a target Don't make me a target Don't make me a target Don't make me a target – Spoon  Worked from home this morning.  Put on music to escape the news.  And yet, somehow there’s just no getting away from it…  Anyways, in other news, the latest Clayton Edition of OrangeUnique is with the printer and will be out early next week.  It’s the bomb.  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #claytonnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #breakingthelaw #thenews #news #bomb #nuclear #nuclearoption #northkorea #potus #spoon #dontmakemeatarget
“All vinyl polymers may be regarded as built from monomeric units containing a tertiary carbon atom.” – Giulio Natta  But, the kids like it anyway.  Just signed up a cool new shop in Garner, NC – Go Stick It Vinyl.  They offer about 100 different vinyl patterns from geometric shapes and polka dots, to paisley and zebra stripes (both self-adhesive and heat transfer). So, get your crafting on!  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #garnernc #claytonnc #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #polymers #nckids #crafting #crafts #carbon #polymers #atoms #geometric #paisley #giulionatta #vinyl
“A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.” – Ansel Adams  Good to know, because I’ve been sitting on this photograph for a few weeks and can’t think of a single witty thing to say about it. (Kaleb Langley of Langley Heating and Air pictured above.  Langley HVAC is featured in both the Raleigh and Wake Forest editions of OrangeUnique – which I hear began dropping in mailboxes today). #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #wakeforestnc #wakeforest #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #witty #hvac #heating #cooling #words #photograph #anseladams
“Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina in the morning” – Dean Martin …. Except for maybe having my son stand in front of the storage shed faking joy and happiness over the latest set of magazines (Wake Forest and North Raleigh). Out this week, in a mailbox near you.  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #wakeforestnc #wakeforest #carolina #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #fakingit #mailbox #martialarts #kidsfurniture #hvac #mexicanrestaurant #indianfood #shed #joy #deanmartin #nothingcouldbefiner
“Nothing seems to kill me no matter how hard I try Nothing is closing my eyes Nothing can beat me down for your pain or delight And nothing seems to break me No matter how hard I fall  Nothing can break me at all” – Soundgarden  Waiting around this fine Friday morning to hear from my printer, so I can pay the postage on the upcoming Wake Forest and Raleigh magazines, and grab my magazine overages.  Very pleased that Bryan Griffin, owner of Quest Martial Arts, will be featured in both magazines.  He’s a Fifth Degree Blackbelt in To-Shin Do, and a former scout sniper in the U.S. Marine Corps who served two combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Impressive resume and even more impressive in person.  Check out his website at: www.questraleigh.com.  And Happy Weekend, folks!  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #wakeforestnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #usmc #marinecorps #marine #combatduty #martialarts #toshindo #iraq #afghanistan #chriscornell #soundgarden #blowuptheoutsideworld

"Here I am baby Signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours" – Stevie Wonder  I forgot to mention that this little numbuh was mailed out last week.  Durham, you are welcome!  If there's anything else I can do for you, just ask.  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #bullcity #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #financialadvisor #doggroomer #mexicanrestaurant #lahacienda #closetsbydesign #magazine #steviewonder #signedsealeddeliveredimyours
“Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.” – Benjamin Franklin  And there’s some news I coulda used about 30 to 40 years ago.  Anyways… Edward Jones Financial Advisor Antoine Randall pictured above (not sure how to punctuate all of that). I enjoyed meeting with this former Marine, and look forward to featuring him on the front cover of the upcoming Durham magazine.  Out next week, party people.  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #finances #financialadvisor #edwardjones #networth #badhabits #usmc #marines #punctuation #benjaminfranklin
“I don't enjoy any kind of danger or volatility. I don't have that kind of 'I love the bad guys' thing. No, no thank you. I like nice people.” – Tina Fey  Me too.  Here’s two of them…  Frans and Monica, the management team at The Nail Stop in Durham, NC.  Always a pleasure to work with these good folks.  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #bullcity #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #volatility #danger #nailsalon #nails #manicure #pedicure #nicepeople #nice #tinafey
“On my deathbed I will pray To the gods and the angels Like a pagan to anyone Who will take me to heaven” – Audioslave  Great lunch with Matt Masisak, owner of Sak’s Deli in Clayton, NC.  Good dude; great food.  After ripping though the best cornbeef reuben In Johnston County (and possibly Wake County as well) we discussed the passing of Soundgarden/Audioslave's Chris Cornell, and what his music meant to us.  Have a happy weekend, folks!  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #carolinablue #claytonnc #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #angels #pagans #gods #heaven #entrepreneur #deli #audioslave #likeastone
“'Cause the modern world is a sight to see It's a stimulant, it's pornography It takes all my will not to turn it off” – Conor Oberst  Another fascinating week in American politics.  But, here’s some good news for Johnston County… the latest Clayton edition of OrangeUnique will also be out this week.  So, whether you’re a precious snowflake just looking for a safe place, or a real American Hate-triot who wants nothing more than to be besties with a Russian… there’s something here for everyone!  #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #claytonnc #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #stimulant #modernworld #realamerican #bestie #snowflake #snowflakes #russia #usa #patriot #precious #conoroberst #barbarycoast
“Shout out to all the birth mommas, adoption mommas, step mommas and foster mommas with the raising and the caring and the loving and whatnot.” – George Wallace (the comedian, not the segregationist). #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #shoutout #adoption #stepmother #fostermother #raising #caring #loving #whatnot #mothersday2017 #momma #georgewallace #comedian
“Kindness is always fashionable, and always welcome.” – Amelia Barr  I received an unexpected e-mail from Shelia McDonald last night with the subject line “Thumbs up to our ad!” and a few nice words about the positive response her business, Off the Hook Seafood restaurant, received from OrangeUnique.  Not bragging and I’m really not very needy, but I was touched that she took the time to write me the message. People don’t do those kind of things as often as they used to and as often as they should.  Yeah, yeah – we’re all busy.  Great restaurant, btw.  It reminds me of some of those amazing country restaurants that you find in small NC towns that serve menu items such as fried okra, candied yams, hushpuppies, fried chicken, and, well… you get the point.  All that and Calabash Style Seafood.  In Rolesville!  Nearby, and right next to Wake Forest. (Pictured above:  Shelia and David McDonald with their daughters). #orangeunique #wakecounty #raleighnc #tarheel #wakeforestnc #rolesvillenc #carolinablue #durhamnc #design #gfx #graphics #media #motivation #marketing #smallbusinessowner #entrepreneur #calabash #hushpuppies #countrycooking #smalltown #friedchicken #familyrestaurant #okra #seafood #kindness #ameliabarr
