A reminder that F-I Manglement will be away next week attending the TexProcess trade show in Atlanta GA. If you’re a forum member who will be attending, be sure to add yourself to the list so we can include you in our planning. If you’re not a member but would like to have dinner with us, be at the top of the escalator by 5:30 PM each afternoon.

For those who won’t be able to attend, I’ll be hosting a neat product give-away this week so stay tuned. In fact, you’ll have multiple opportunities to win via the forum, Twitter and Facebook.

As usual, below appears a selection of content to entries posted on this site for this period, over the past seven years with still more on the archives page. Have a great weekend.
