Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #390 – Week 02/11/15

Play

ersbst It’s hard to believe that the show is approaching show number 400. In some ways it feels like it was just yesterday when we started this ride and in others it feels a lot longer. Perhaps it’s the lack of sleep that I’ve been getting every Wednesday.  The lead story for this week’s program is the verdict in which an elevator mechanic was found guilty of felony assault in a woman’s injuries. I believe it’s the second time that I’m aware of that a mechanic has been charged with this. And Boston, hang in there, the snow will melt by June!

ers-by20152As I was driving in this morning to do the show the news reported that worst of Juno is over but the snow and flooding that it brought is significant. For those of you in those areas impacted I imagine you’re staying home today and maybe tomorrow so relax.  Take your time shoveling/snow blowing and try not to get to upset about what you cannot control.  Try to enjoy it if you can, help a neighbor out and take it slow. Remember that the snow will be gone by June which is only five months away, I promise.

Even Santa needs to take the elevator once in a while.

Even Santa needs to take the elevator once in a while.

I’d like to wish everyone a heartfelt Merry Christmas. Thank you for the cards you’ve sent and emails wishing me good holiday cheer. As 2014 comes to a close moving into a new fresh year is something I always enjoy. I received a nice email from Brendon who is now a teenager. He remembers calling into the Santa Hotline some seven years ago. For those of you who don’t remember, when I first started the show each year between November and December I installed a “special” phone line and number that went direct to Santa’s workshop in the North pole. I was lucky enough to ask him if I could do this because C.J. Anderson & Company supplies most of the elevator equipment used at his facility. He was game and there were many children who called and left Santa a message during those months including my own. Brendon wrote; calling the Santa Hotline was something I couldn’t wait to do and sometimes I’d even call when my parents didn’t know. In fact my dad just told me that during the first year you did this I called fifty-five times in the period of two weeks. Thank you for providing that for me as a kid as it was magical.

Back from a wonderful trip to Wisconsin where it was cold and snowy and no one robbed my house after declaring I’d be out for a few days over the interweb.  I wasn’t too surprised to learn that there were not a lot of articles out there but some I enjoy commenting on. If you’re like me and wonder how some of this ends online please feel free to comment. Those are some of the best items to read.
