No ads

I recently had a meal at The Cheesecake Factory. I chose the word “had” instead of “enjoyed” with purpose. For, I was appalled to see that in their menu booklet there are loads of full page advertisements.  I had had a busy day of running errands, and I was more than ready for a respite in my day.  When I opened the menu and was bombarded with ads,  I expressed my dismay!  I will be hard pressed to eat there again until they change what is, in my opinion, a horrendous marketing decision.

Here at The Delicate Pen,  we want your visit to our blog to be ad free.  You won’t see any icons from other companies that would give us 2 or 3 cents in exchange for cluttering up our site, and your mini-break.  We don’t think that is elegant or……delicate.  I want you to take a one minute respite from your day and get a perk,  a tip or a personal recommendation from us, when you visit.

So for today, for your end of the week perk,  just a photo of some tulips I have set near my light board today as I am working, to make me, and hopefully you, smile. Spring really is only days away!
