[YAK] Shameless self promotion

I don’t usually do this with Orchid because almost none of you are
my customer base but anyone who would like to see what I look like
and hear what I sound like (either to associate a face with the name
or because you want to avoid me when you see me) can go to this: and click on my picture and
see one of the ads I made for Blue Cross recently. They’re currently
running on television as well but it’s not national so if you’re not
in the area you won’t be able to see them.

Nice ad. There’s still the possibility of a second career now so
don’t miss your Actors Guild dues.

However I’d be careful about Blue Crosses insurance…they’re being
sued by the LA District Attorney now for dropping over 1,500
patients who, while fully paid up with Blue Cross, were dropped
because of developing issues. Including one 61 year-old woman after
receiving authorization and treatment for cancer.

Good luck. Kim.

Hi Daniel, great to put a face to the name, and a really nice ad!
(hope you got a discount)



What fun to see a fellow Orchider on the little video clip. I’ve
long appreciated your wise and informed comments. Now I can match
those to a face. Many of us could stand to do a bit of shameless self
promotion so thanks for that too.

BTW - your jewelry isn’t bad either.

hope you got a discount 

No pay from Blue Cross on this. But I did get paid as a screen actor
for the day (didn’t know I would when I agreed to do the ads). And I
didn’t even have to join the union as they give you one shot without
having to join (good thing, too, because I doubt my days’ wages would
have paid for them).

However I'd be careful about Blue Crosses insurance.... 

Each state’s Blue Cross is run separately and is independent from
any other Blue Cross in the country. Here in MA this has never been a
problem, and our local one is currently in the forefront of trying to
make hospitals and doctors responsible for their own mistakes
(instead of just collecting from the insurance companies when they
make them). I didn’t say anything in the ads made that I don’t
believe fully in. Same way I run the rest of my business.
