Number of the Month – July

I’m going to rip off a blog idea from fellow blogger Bob Strader. He has a monthly feature called the big number that he posts at the end of each month. His number is usually real estate related but mine will be whatever. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I hope Bob takes it that way because I love his blog.


The number of ads for cosmetic surgery, BOTOX or teeth whitening procures in the August 2010 issue of Points North Magazine.

    I love it Lee – obscure information like this is interesting to me. Maybe you can tell us all how many mattress stores are in Alpharetta – there seems to be one in every strip center.. ;)

    Are you entirely sure you counted all of them?

    Counting ads in a magazine… easy. Driving all over town to count mattress stores, ain’t gonna happen! But I agree, there are a ton.

    Points North is a good barometer for the local economy. The magazine is pretty thin these days. Back a few years ago there was a lot more meat to it, and I’m sure more botox ads.
