Hello World!

When I popped down to the shops today, I noticed that the supermarket chain had changed its name from 'Franklin's Fresh' (which sounds like a grocery store) to 'Action.'

Now, when you think about it, names like 'Woolworths,' 'Coles' and 'Target' don't exactly screen "Supermarket!" but 'Action' is just wrong. However, I must say it's still better than the new logo designed to promote Brisbane - a couple of colourful splodges.
