Dear Craig,

But that's your call, and that's Cocktail Talk.
Just for Fun?
CerryIts been said the difference between men and boys is the size and price of the toys. In this case its not the men and boys but the adults and children.

Adults have LinkedIn and children have Facebook. The games are simple; whoever gets the most "friends" wins. You put together a profile in the web and try to get people to join your club. Wikipedia defenitions of each follow.

Facebook is a social networking website  The free-access website allows users to join one or more networks, such as a  school, place of employment, or geographic reagion to easily connect and interact with other people.

Users can post messages for their friends to see, and update their personal profile to notify friends about themselves. The name of the website refers to the paper facebooks depicting members of a campus community that some American colleges and preparatory schools give to incoming students, faculty, and staff as a way to get to know other people on campus.

Facebook membership was initially limited to only Harvard students, but was later expanded to include any university student, then high school students, and finally to anyone aged 13 and over.

LinkedIn is a business-oriented social networking site mainly used for professional networking, its site traffic was 3.2 million visitors per month, growing at an annual growth rate of about 485% as of March 2008 it had more than 20 million registered users.

The purpose of the site is to allow registered users to maintain a list of contact details of people they know and trust in business. The people in the list are called Connections. Users can invite anyone (whether a site user or not) to become a connection.

So, you see, LinkedIn and Facebook are both social networks, only one is business and one is not. One is for adults and one is not. LinkedIn is for business and adults and is just as much fun to play as Facebook.

People that register with LinkedIn want to be found. Maybe not by you, but thats another thing. LinkedIn will find its members from your college, university, current or previous employers, and even your email address books. You can look up people by name and a host of other keywords too.

While playing LinkedIn you may accidentaly end up doing business with, or making money with, these people. You can even be LinkedIn to me if you want, just click the icon,

 Celebrating Cinco de Mayo



Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York.


This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico.  But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.


The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day.


The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as

Sinko de Mayo.
