A Great Limousine Service

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

copyright 2009 The Bettina Network, inc.

We have come across many businesses in life, but we comment on only a very few.  Commonwealth Worldwide Chauffeured Transportation is one of those few.

You know our love for organic everything.  Well, this is a limousine service which is going green.  They get more than 40 miles/gallon from their cars because they use Ford Fusion Hybrid cars and they are still able to provide 95% of the room you’ve enjoyed in a Lincoln Town Car.  Commonwealth was awarded the 2009 Best of Boston and they are the official transportation service for the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

We spend a lot of time marketing and deciding where to place advertisements for the Bettina Network, inc.  We spend just as much time trying to decide how and where to give back.  That is one of our top priorities.  A business can’t begin to be great until and unless it gives back to the world at least as much as it is given.  So, when we see a business, we look at their product and services and then if that adds up we ask ourselves —– what do they give back for all the opportunities they have been given?  In the process of doing that we discovered Commonwealth.

We knew about their spectacular service and all that goes into making them an exceptional company.  We also knew the tremendous difference Jaimie Botero makes for Commonwealth as he goes about his daily job. He adds a very special touch to the services Commonwealth offers ordinarily and we tell all of our guests who use the Bettina Network in the Greater Boston area to ask for Mr. Botero.

You can imagine how delighted we were to discover that the November 28th BSO concert is being sponsored by Commonwealth.  What a wonderful thing to do!

So needless to say, we recommend Commonwealth when you are traveling and want to reserve transportation for your trip from the airport to your Bettina home and when you want to reserve a car for the day to take you the many, many places you need to visit when in Cambridge, Boston, New York, or worldwide.  Or if you want the luxury of being driven from Boston to New York to stay in another Bettina home for a few days, they will be very gracious and efficient in their response to your request.

Enjoy discovering a wonderful business and let us know if our recommendation met your expectations!

Saw Palmetto over breakfast

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

copyright 2009 The Bettina Network, inc.

Great breakfast conversations today!  The bit of information I would like to share is from the gentleman who had to stop at the GNC to pick up a bottle of Saw Palmetto before leaving the country.  He buys a couple bottles each time he is in the U. S. because he can’t find it in his country.  He uses it to keep his prostate healthy and swears by them.  First time I’d heard of this, but I will take it seriously, he is several years past retirement is very healthy and has been doing this for a number of years.  I wanted to ask if he’d had prostate problems or was this in response to prostate cancer, but I didn’t know him well enough and he didn’t go beyond where he could find a GNC store.  Maybe he will return and knowing him better we can get a bit more into his business.

Can I Have a Recipe Please?

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

We just returned from a wonderful trip visiting our daughter and we stayed at one of your Bettina homes.  We had the best coconut cake I have ever had in life.  Please either send me the recipe – if you need to keep it secret – or put it on your Bettina’s Blog – which I read every Sunday morning the way I used to read the New York Times.

Thanks,  We will definitely call you first.  I have never had such an experience, even in very expensive hotels.  Keep up your work, something is working.
