What is Dothan Alabama’s Q-Pon?

This is a public service announcement to let Dothan, AL, and its surrounding area businesses know that the next big thing in business marketing is here! We are pleased to announce to you Dothan’s new, local marketing advertisement booklet we call, the Dothan, AL, Q-pon. Also known as, Da’ Q-pon. Since the time that the Q-Pon has been in our community, many have asked, “Why is the booklet spelled with “D-A?” We want to tell you that with our Southern heritage in mind, and our clever way of marketing our magazine, the “D-A” stands for DOTHAN, ALABAMA. In no way are we attempting to promote bad grammar, nor do we intend to promote any kind of negativity to our readers. We do understand how important it is to promote a high level, professional magazine for our readers, clients, and sponsors. Da Q-Pon is a hybrid of a small sized “shopper” with the look and feel of a magazine. With the use of smart phone technology, Da Q-pon is designed to link consumers directly to your business’ website, Facebook, or twitter page with a single scan of a QR Code with your smart phone. This allows customers access to your business information, current promotions, special offers and discounts.

The Secret of HAPPINESS

The wise man listened attentively to the boy's explanation of why he had come, but told him that he didn't have time just then to explain the secret of happiness. He suggested that the boy look around the palace and return in two hours. "Meanwhile, I want to ask you to do something", said the wise man, handing the boy a teaspoon that held two drops of oil. "As you wander around, carry this spoon with you without allowing the oil to spill". The boy began climbing and descending the many stairways of the palace, keeping his eyes fixed on the spoon. After two hours, he returned to the room where the wise man was. "Well", asked the wise man, "Did you see the Persian tapestries that are hanging in my dining hall? Did you see the garden that it took the master gardener ten years to create? Did you notice the beautiful parchments in my library?" The boy was embarrassed, and confessed that he had observed nothing. His only concern had been not to spill the oil that the wise man had entrusted to him. "Then go back and observe the marvels of my world", said the wise man. "You cannot trust a man if you don't know his house".

A certain shopkeeper sent his son to learn about the secret of happiness from the wisest man in the world. The lad wandered through the desert for 40 days, and finally came upon a beautiful castle, high atop a mountain. It was there that the wise man lived.

Relieved, the boy picked up the spoon and returned to his exploration of the palace, this time observing all of the works of art on the ceilings and the walls. He saw the gardens, the mountains all around him, the beauty of the flowers, and the taste with which everything had been selected. Upon returning to the wise man, he related in detail everything he had seen.

Rather than finding a saintly man, though, our hero, on entering the main room of the castle, saw a hive of activity: tradesmen came and went, people were conversing in the corners, a small orchestra was playing soft music, and there was a table covered with platters of the most delicious food in that part of the world. The wise man conversed with everyone, and the boy had to wait for two hours before it was his turn to be given the man's attention.

"But where are the drops of oil I entrusted to you?" asked the wise man. Looking down at the spoon he held, the boy saw that the oil was gone.

"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you", said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon".

Mr. Tom Natter just keeps getting fatter No matter how little he eats Mrs. Tom Natter puts veggies on his platter And plenty of lean red meats The wife is very thin like all her next of kin She avoids fatty foods and sweets She feels it is a sin to dive right in And indulge in those tempting treats Her husband does agree but cannot break free And thinks his wife is ashamed It’s such a mystery and makes no sense you see Why his weight cannot be tamed When they sit to have a meal with beef or lamb or veal Their platters are the same With very little will she makes fat-free foods with skill But her efforts seem in vain In the middle of the night without turning on a light Mr. Natter creeps around the house Down the hall to the right into the kitchen for a bite Unheard by his sleeping spouse His eyes are tightly closed but somehow he knows To be quiet as a mouse Now the truth is exposed and his belly steadily grows If he wasn’t sleep walking, I’d call him a louse

A new business was opening and one of the owner's friends wanted to send him flowers for the occasion. They arrived at the new business site and the owner read the card,.... "Rest in Peace." The owner was angry and called the florist to complain. After he had told the florist of the obvious mistake and how angry he was, the florist replied, "Sir, I'm really sorry for the mistake, but rather than getting angry, you should imagine this: somewhere, there is a funeral taking place today, and they have flowers with a note saying,... 'Congratulations on your new location!'"
