Visit to Graceland 2005 – Memphis Tennessee

Elvisgrave This has nothing to do with Public Relations, Software or Technology.  But it is cool in a "am I really that cheesy?" type of way.  I finally visited Elvis’ Graceland in Memphis (see previous post).  Graceland was not on my list.  Sort of like Vegas isn’t on my list – I am not a gambler so I just don’t see the appeal.  But I was there in Memphis, and I definitely make an A+ tacky tourist when given the opportunity.  In fact, I am typing this in a XXL black Elvis shirt.  Even the buttons have the king on them. You gotta love it.

I purchased a great Elvis clock for the front entry for the office where little Elvis gets his groove on with each tick of the clock.  Basically, if you can’t visit Warhol’s factory, Graceland is next.  Or am I missing something?

Anyway, please enjoy these pictures from Graceland in Memphis Tennessee.  And remember – they don’t allow flash so some of the pictures in the darker rooms like the Jungle room aren’t quite focused because of the long shutter time.

PRSA Memphis Site Launch October 2005!

Prsamemphis I finally got to visit Memphis for the launch of the new Tendenci organization based web site for the Public Relations Society of America Memphis chapter.  The PRSA Memphis web committee did a great job of launching the site on a tight timeline. 

Shout out to Kim Lange on our team for driving this project.  Definitely in the category of "easier said than done" – not that guiding PR professionals is like herding cats, but there are easier tasks in the world.
