The Nag Factor

My latest post is up at ModernMom.com, wherein Reid shows me he is a statistic and Fred Flintstone shows me he still knows how to hock sugary cereal after four decades! FOUR DECADES! Curious? Come on over there and read more!

And hey, I suppose you have to hand it to the marketers/packagers/merchandisers who launched Fred's face on Fruity Pebbles boxes that many years ago that they knew what they were doing... and to the marketers who still work on the Fruity Pebbles brand who apparently know that if something ain't broke, there is no need to fix it! Still? As long as Hubby Hawks isn't in the cereal aisle with us, Fred will stay very nicely nestled into his spot on the shelf, no matter what 'gimme goblin' temporarily takes over my 4-year-old's brain.

So, come tell me at ModernMom.com what you think about The Nag Factor, and how it does or doesn't impact your purchases. Won't you?

If we follow your logic, then you could buy replica watches sale and have it painted another color and it suddenly becomes a rolex watches. While it obvious that this rado replica is going to be geared towards the mainland UK market, I think this can be seen as a viable men replica watches sale in the UK market as well. Rolex takes particular care in ensuring that all the stones on a given watch are of the same hue, using a combination of a long sorting process carried out by hand, stone by stone in the Rolex workshops. The dial is slightly different, with Rolex choosing a glossy replica watches finish as opposed to the matte dial on the rolex watches model. This watch costs a lot more than a tie, but I see it much the same way. The stones are absolutely perfect and that adds a level of confidence to the hublot replica of the multi colored arrangement.
