They Made Me Walk the Plank

It was a hot Saturday in the city made hotter by some wild out-of-town visitors from the north. What better way to show them the town then a cruise around Mendota and Monona. The sun felt great on my face, but so did the light breeze. We were on the Monona side when my friend Bob launched into one of his always charming "postivity" proclamations. "Live life to the fullest everyday. Be happy and don't get depressed. I've loved my wife from the moment we met. I've made money and lost it, but I always knew I had the ability to make it back. Everyday is a great day bringing a new adventure." As his stream of consciousness continued, I remember thinking to myself wow, that's really corny; so I turned to Bob and said only what a friend would say, "Wow, that's really corny." Can anyone say mutiny?

Moving Sucks, or Does It?

Moving Sucks, or Does It?

We're in the process of moving our Madison offices to 33 East Main on Block 89. It's a wonderful building inside and out, with a 3-season conference room (yes, it's a deck) overlooking the Capitol Square that I haven't seen anyone use. The complexities of moving a business are real and a bit overwhelming. There's the whole technology issue: phones, video conferencing systems, servers, different sharing solutions with our Wausau office, and the list goes on. For the most part, they (you know who your are) keep me away from these complexities preferring to seek my input on the new flat screen and the refrigerator. Fine with me.
