Come with me to China!

Come with me to China!

I am so excited this week to announce the opportunity that IB has been busy arranging for you! (Drum roll, please). So forgive me in advance, but I'm going to be using a lot more exclamation points than usual this week. That's how excited I am!

It's a <em>Christmas Tree</em>, darn it! Deal with it.

It's a Christmas Tree, darn it! Deal with it.

Two things this week: One is an invitation to accompany me on a trip to China (!) and the other is a Christmas list of gripes and blessings. This being Christmas week, and me being Christian, that topic can't be relegated to "second item on the agenda," so China will have to wait a few minutes for your attention.

The Ghost of Christmas Doll Past

The Ghost of Christmas Doll Past

Every year, my daughters can count on receiving three gifts from me as "staples," regardless what else I buy or make; they will get new pajamas, slipper socks, and a doll. I'm kind of conservative when it comes to buying lingerie for daughters, so the traditional two-piece flannel ensemble suffices, though in different color or pattern every year.

IB 100 Comments: And the Survey Said....
What do area business managers/owners think about the economy, and government's role in it?

With the assistance of Chamberlain Research Consultants, IB has been polling 100 area company owners/top managers about their perceptions of the U.S. economy, state economy, and local economy — as well as the impact of the collective on their businesses — and publishing the results in our print issues every month for two years. Typically, we include comments in that section, but for the December issue, we've opted to bring the contents to our online audience as well, here.
