We here in Chicago survived the blizzard that swept through last Wednesday and we’ve got more snow than we know what to do with. If we could only sell it we’d all be millionaires! Action packed show today, lots of content to cover plus I’ll go over my travel plans for the next two weeks. There were a few articles that were pretty bad a good show to forward articles to colleagues and friends. One story was pretty bad, where a small child had her finger severed by an escalator. Makes me realize, again, how important the work that the EESF does and will be never ending.  Everyone think Spring, only three more months until all this snow melts!
