This is our set up at Sam’s Club from the entrance. If you’ve ever been to the store in Fullerton, when you walk in, there’s a massive display of TV sets and you walk into the electronics section. We’re just to the right of the entrance, and one of the first things you see when you get into the store.
That’s the good news. The bad news is where all the other beverages are. On the opposite side of the store. So if you’re going to Sam’s Club to buy 30 bottles of water for $3.00 or 80 ounces of ranch dressing for $12.00 (which is a lot of ranch dressing, by the way – well worth the $12.00) you don’t necessarily pass our tables.
But enough people passed by to make it a success. We had a great day, and we are now extending the road show until Sunday, February 19th. That gives us two whole weekends there, which is what we want.
Rocking Roxie Rocked, and both Jenny and April were there helping out. Jenny is there this morning, and Julie will be there this afternoon.
I can’t post the exact numbers, but I will say that I’m cautiously optimistic after the first day. The next two days will tell us much more. The most interesting I’ve learned is that the audience at Sam’s Club is not crazy for the Green Tea. The audience at Whole Foods loves the Green Tea, but Sam’s Club, not so much. Also, the community at Sam’s Club tends to be more interested in the stick packs than the chews.
Stay tuned, I’ll have another update tomorrow.
Todays’ article is from Gizmodo and it’s exactly about bacteria. The link is here:
It’s interesting enough to post. NASA is getting ready to send astronauts to Mars, and they’re trying to figure out how to deal with health care when someone is in space. They’ve developed a carbon nanotube device that’s implanted in the body. This device called a ‘biocapsule’ can contain metered doses of medicine like insulin, chemotherapy, radiation protection cells, etc. It lasts for years, and can test the surrounding blood to determine if it needs to release the medicine.
Take diabetes, for example. The biocapsule is filled with islet cells, which produce insulin. The body provides the nutrients for the islet cells in the biocapsule, and the capsule itself tests the blood as it flows by. If the capsule senses a change in blood sugar, then the capsule releases the insulin into the bloodstream. Since the cells are growing there, the capsule can last for years, and the diabetic doesn’t need to test his blood or inject himself with insulin.
It’s a pretty amazing technology, and if you get a chance, read the article.
And if you’re anywhere near Fullerton, go to Sam’s!!!
