Can you Buy Me An Apple?

By: Carol Giambri

October 5, 2011 is a day that will go down in history. Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple, died as a "young" 56 year old. He was a family man. Everyone knows his face.  Since I didn't get a picture with his permission I rather skip that part.  Now think of the picture of his face saying: Steve Jobs remembered.

His memory will live on.  He left a legacy behind that is hard to match but his values will be live on by the great company he has birthed.  Also the lives Steve touched directly or indirectly.  His employes and customers loved him.  Me too.  His products are amazing.  

Hooked forever...

First Apple is My MacBook Pro

As a 2 year convert to Apple products I can only brag on their products and service.  I am hooked on Apple. Their value and products are everything I believe in.  I love and use what I own. I am trained by the great Apple staff to know the benefits and ways to use my products for my business and personal use.  Your voice counts at the store, their service is about serving the customer as if they were the only customer they have and love.  They remember your name. They create that relationship.  If ever a problem with a product they are first to fix or replace if that be the need.  They create the spending experience on their products like going to heaven.  

Questions…

How do you want to be remembered?

What kind of attitude do people see or sense being around you?

Are you relational? 

Do you encourage? 

Do you strive to be your best? 

What qualities would people remember about you when you are gone?

Can you say…

Me too –I do get it!

Now on the flip side of the Apple products and store…

I recently wrote a blog post about the health benefits of apples.

Organic Apples

Healthy…

I didn't realize all the great healthy benefits I got when eating apples.  It's sort of like being in apple wonderland sometimes with all the varieties.  I wrote a blog on it and included a homemade applesauce recipe there. I am not one to use tons of ingredients but make it fast, simple and delicious. I believe this recipe and the value of the article will entice you to eat more than an apple a day.  What color or kind will you eat today? Go for organic if possible.

Staying connecting…

I would love to have us stay connected too.  My writings are kid user friendly encouraging families to come together through the garden experience. If you don't have kids your neighbors may want to have an edible front yard garden. Or, how about getting involved in a community garden.  Actually you can look at some of the articles at my website as well as in the categories area you can click around in. 

Learning to live healthier and happier through the Apple world…

Can you see the picture below.  They say a picture says a thousand words.  Can you see that here?  Is it just a very blue sky and cloud to your eyes?  I took it yesterday here in Colorado. Take a minute and look again? Pause! Pause again!

Colorado Blue Sky

Now what do you see in the sky?

Yesterday I was looking at the cloud and my eyes saw a "chicken" in the clouds.  Are my eyes playing tricks?  I often see animals or people in the clouds.  Why? I think my creativity and imagination has expanded massively since learning how to paint and also the Apple experience.  What do you see?

Want more Apples –toys or fruits?

Are you thinking Apple store products or eating fresh apples?  Think both but don't forget the benefits of eating apples daily.  Weight loss? Yes, go with apples.  Perhaps it will be a way to help keep the doctor away! 

Reflecting and Acting…

I assume that you the reader have never met Steve Jobs, but in one way another you or someone you know, was impacted by his life.  My doors have flung opened to being more creative in the past two years then ever. I have gotten an eye for photography as well.  Thank you Steve for that without knowing you. Now talking about fruits, apples, are very healthy.  Did you click and read about them yet? Eat more daily.

What Did You Think? Please share.

Organic Apples! Yum – clean the apple off, and eat the beautiful peel, most of the nutrients are in the peel.  Thanks Carol!

Like you say most of us never met Steve Jobs in person, but he sure had an impact on our lives, even those of us who have yet to buy an actual Apple product,  We are just buying other brands o of technology that he set in motion.

Olga, Organic is always more expensive but not having to deal with the chemicals/preservatives I feel I rather buy less but have better quality for my body. Thanks Olga for commenting.

Carol Giambri October 11, 2011 at 9:00 am

Pat, totally Steve turned my life upside down and loving it. Thanks for sharing. I’m not one that technology was given to, but learning more than most in our older crowd.

Carol Giambri October 11, 2011 at 9:02 am

Rachelle, totally right — nutrients in the peel. We are so lucky to live in an area where organics rock. Thanks for sharing.

Carol Giambri October 11, 2011 at 9:02 am

Thank you Denny for commenting. I just love sharing what keeps me happy and healthy with all. I love your “parenting” posts from you–the parenting expert–as I call ya.

Great post Carol!  Love the question for reflection!  I just became an Apple girl and am excited about having made the switch from a PC!  Love Apple's customer service!  Can't be beat!

Carol Giambri October 12, 2011 at 11:23 pm

Jennifer, thanks for commenting. I truly am hooked on Apple products; yes their support is amazing. Actually owe a letter to a manager for today’s great support. True, can’t be them.
