It’s been a long time?
- - - -
Wow! It’s been over a year now since I sent out an update notice. The mbd2.com site has had many updates, new pages, picture and features.  Where did the time go?  I hope this update notice highlights all the new things, plus gets me back in the grove of sending out update notes for 2007.

New Web Page & Pictures
- - - -
I’ve added some new pages to the web site and have started to do some revamping of old pages.  As of this year, January 27, 2007 the mbd2.com web site turned 10 years old.  So this year the site will be getting small makeovers to improve and update the look and add more information to  the site.  This will be an ongoing project for 2007 & 2008. 

Some new page can be found on the front page of http://www.mbd2.com.  Traffic Building, Traffic Boosting, Trade Show Giveaways, Generate Quality Leads, and 1st Birthday Party theme have all been added this past year.

New- Restaurant Picture Gallery
-------------------------------
This year I started taking pictures at the restaurant and posting the pictures for customers to download and email to family and friends.  This gallery can be found by going to the front page of http://www.mbd2.com and click on the flower on the right side of the page.

New- Restaurant Guest Book
--------------------------
In the Restaurant Picture Gallery I have added a guest book for restaurant customers.  This way I can get feed back from the customers.  I just added the guest book two weeks ago and I’m still waiting for the customers to start signing the guest book.

New- Guest Book
---------------
I have implemented a new guest book because the old one was getting spammed. The new guest book includes a security code to prevent spammers.  I have over 786 posts in the guest book so please feel free to come out and sign it!

New Balloon Instructions

I was approached to do a kids TV show about balloon animals and they wanted a test video.  So I hired a videographer to shoot this video.  Needless to say, nothing came of it so I put it out on the Internet for all to view.
