Instead of always blaming “those terrible advertisers” for “raising the bar,” maybe we should ask ourselves why they are building advertising campaigns that feel gluttonous or over-the-top. Surely they know us, their audience, and surely they are watching and listening to us very carefully so they can build the ads that will speak to us most effectively.

Text Messages / Mishpacha Issue 714
I still am a fan of onion-soup mix and duck sauce for coating my chicken and meat. Olive oil, salt, and vinegar work just fine for me on salads. I’m not running to read new recipes; I have other interests and hobbies. But I have a new appreciation for “foodies.” I’m not rolling my eyes anymore saying, “It’s just food.” Baruch Hashem, there are people who do care about food. And they helped me bring my son to the Shabbos table.
