Post: June 11th, 2014: ERS-2014-06-11 #367 Show Notes (no audio/video show today due to....) This weeks audio/video portion of the show was produced but due to some technical issues, I'm blaming Microsoft's update last night, did not save correctly. Instead of not having any content today I wanted to at least provide you with the article links, less my commentary. So if you're hunting for the audio or video file it isn't there. I hope to have it all corrected by next week.
It was great to see everyone that came out to support the Chicago Cruise benefiting the EESF last Wednesday. While the weather was a little chilly the warmth of those who attended was felt the entire night. Great boat, good food and exceptional company made the event a success.
Regarding show links this week the story/article/video that nearly crashed my computer was the one that most of you most likely already saw of the elevator that took off with the doors open in Chile. Amazing how much reposting this one got. As soon as I saw it, before reading the article, I knew it was an elevator located outside the United States and Canada.
On a personal note for those of you with kids finishing up the school year enjoy the following video. Also Happy Fathers day to those of you out there that have little ones. Enjoy it and hopefully you get to do something you enjoy on Sunday with your family.
