Post: August 31st, 2011: ERS-2011-08-31 #267 Show Notes

Click Here to download ERS-2011-08-31 #267 End of the month and lots to cover today on the show.  As Hurricane Irene hit the east coast it was interesting to watch the extensive news coverage on Saturday.  I’m just glad it wasn’t as bad as forecasters were predicting. Fewer news stories today but one horrific accident where a four year old boy was killed in India. These kinds of accidents shouldn’t happen ANYWHERE!  Another reason to support the efforts of the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation, no matter what country you live in.  Also on the show today we’ll be giving away a $100 gift card and prize pack.  Next week we’ll have the winner of the caption contest for the Video that was posted two weeks ago as well. We got some good entries.

Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!
