May 27, 2011 — This weekend is the semi-official kick-off to the summer vacation season in North America and with it also being Memorial Weekend we here at ‘Inside The Gate’ and the ‘Gatehouse’ want to personally thank all developers, sales and marketing reps and everyone else in the ‘biz’ from the security guard to the waiter, maid, admin, etc. who have ‘Served’ and worn the uniform (and their families too).
In the United States Memorial Day has a very special meaning and a history that goes back well over 100 years (http://www.usmemorialday.org/backgrnd.html) and although it is officially for the purpose of remembering and honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice it is also a time to remember those who have served and continue to serve around the world.
From the American Revolution to Gettysburg; World War I to WWII and then Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War to our present wars in the Middle East everyone who has, is and will (in the future) serve deserves our undying respect and gratitude because it has been and continues to be they and they alone who allow most of us to live the good life!
For those interested in the ‘big picture’, who want a real eye-opener and to see some things you likely have no idea ever occurred then visit:
Lest we forget!
Enough said; but I warn you Diamond Resorts International (and a few others) if you don’t fix some things about your current online ‘Specials’ (aka: ‘Marketing’) that you are promoting– and do it post haste– then soon I’m going to tear you a ‘new one’ because it is quite obvious that you (someone) just doesn’t get it!
Over and out!
