    Tony has been with BMI since October of 2003 and serves as one of our bi-lingual Customer Service Representatives. He is a lot of fun to work with and regularly shares stories with us about playing soccer on the weekends. He thought he might be to "shy" to interview; however, he managed to answer all my questions without hesitation!

    It is said that "truth in advertising" is a myth. However, I do not totally agree with that statement. One of my favorite commercials is also one of the most honest and truthful commercials I have ever seen. It is an eBay commercial. There is a man working in a department store, and a woman asks for something and he begins to sing about a... - CONTINUED

    Ecards -R- Easy!
    by Nathan O'Neel

    Electronic greeting cards (e-cards) are one of the nicest and easiest ways to keep in touch, say Hi, or acknowledge special occasions. So...when thinking of that special someone there are a lot of websites to visit for just the right e-card. (I have included a few links at the end). Some offer free trials and then a small subscription fee afterwards. At BMI, we offer a free e-card service to our customers! Take a look: Free BMI e-card

    E-cards are as simple to use as sending an email. And it is much easier than going to the store, selecting a card from racks of choices, bringing it home, addressing it, and sending it; not to mention it is don't have to wait days for it to arrive at it's destination!
    Nothing is better than when you say it from the heart and e-cards are a great way to do that

    I love the "escape" reading a good story brings! I have always enjoyed reading, and do not remember a time that I did not. In today's world, however, it seems like our lives continually get busier and busier and there is less and less time for that "escape".

    Over the last few years, I found myself reading for enjoym...
