Back from a great mini vacation in Florida with the family it was just what was needed to rejuvenate the spirit. The weather couldn’t have been better and yes I did get a tan as you’ll be able to see on the video. It’s our prize pack giveaway show, the last of the month and that means one more day closer to spring and warmer weather. We’ve got some good articles on the show today, which are pretty significant when it comes to litigation. I’ll be headed off to Mobile, AL tomorrow morning for the EESF Annual Meeting which I’ll report on when I get back next week.

Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!
