Hunter Really?

One of our Ceiling Fan / Lights went out and so off to Home Depot I go. Put the fan up in no time and worked great. It came with a "Limited Lifetime" warranty which we all know is more limited than lifetime. Went to fill out the warranty card to send in and it was the above picture. Included;

Household income
Which room it was installed in
Other like products I may have...

Really? It was "Required" information.

Face to face meetings.

I recently had a chance to meet several vendors that I usually do business with on the phone. Even with video conferencing, email and many hours on the phone, the face to face meeting still bonds much better. I even had a chance to see many present and while presentation skills are still important, it is obvious who puts together presentations with effort versus others who simply hid slides from the "Corporate" deck.

Every one knows when it is a canned presentation.

If you want to close the deal, get in the car/airplane and make it happen!

Had a great day golfing with Dad.

I think he was standing in the water to make that shot!

We had a great time playing at Lake Perry.

Eastern KS is definitely dry, however the course did manage to have a few water hazards.

I am the best Pitcher ever!

OK that one got your attention. Really I am talking about Pepe Gomez. More specifically his self image.

Happy birthday Jose "Pepe" Gomez. Happy 21st.

Keep your head high, fast ball under control and remember to take an extra dozen balls to the golf course. Your going to need them
