The last show of the month and our prize pack giveaway! Instead of giving away $100 I’m actually going to give away a Coffee Gift pack from Backroads Coffee in Hayward Wisconsin. I headed up there this weekend for a short get away with my oldest two boys and we had a great time. As those of us here in the United States celebrate the Fourth of July and a nice three-day weekend I suspect that many of you are headed out on the road and on vacation enjoy yourself.

We’ve got a fun show today, one of my million dollar ideas is actually came to light today as there’s  a story on a solar-powered elevator designed in London. I ask all of you the same question…..why not? Will this be the future of where our industry heads? Will wind powered elevators be next? Again I ask the question, why not? I’ll also provide a brief recap of last weeks Chicago Cruise that had a great turn out despite the weather. Have a great rest of the week and weekend everyone! Thanks to some great goodies from the following companies.
