    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    I love the frog. You might not be old enough to remember, but I remember listening to Smilin' Ed McConnell's "Buster Brown Gang" on the radio as a kid. There was a character named Froggy the Gremlin on that show who was a very mischievous character. Froggy made the transition to TV and lived on in a couple of shows. He could always be summoned by the phrase "plunk your magic twanger, Froggy" Every time I see your logo I think of Froggy.

    Jay, maybe you should talk to these guys about some joint promotions. I've had their wines, and they aren't bad at all.
