I was surprised by the number of elevator related news stories on the program today. I was truly expecting a much shorter show. I was hoping not to cover any elevator accidents but there was one that I’ll cover on the program today. I’ve got a few items in which I get up on the Soap Box and chat about and encourage your comments and offer this show as your means to get up on your Soap Box as well. Next week is our prize pack giveaway and we’re giving away $100 along with some cool elevator goodies. While it’s the beginning of Spring here in the Midwest, it feels like winter.
