Great show today, lots of interesting stories that I found from all over the world. We've also got some great e-mails and commentaries too. Please welcome retired Elevator Mechanic Jim from Northern California who has started his own blog where he shares some great stories from his time in the trade. I forgot to talk about it on the show today and wanted to make sure you all check it out. The link is in the fun elevator stuff column on the website and can also be seen by clicking here. Only six more weeks of winter so the Groundhog says. Wouldn't that be nice! Have a great rest of the week everyone and be safe!
