Ever have a week where you had a million things to do and knew that there just weren’t enough hours in the day? This always happens when I’m covering for people at work. When my coworkers are on vacation I truly realize just how valuable they are. Well this week I was trying to bring you an interview but technical difficulties brought that to a halt, so a regular new packed show today. Next week is the Elevator U Conference in Quincy, IL and it's going to be great! I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at that event. Because it will be very busy next week in Quincy there most likely won’t be a show. If something should change from that plan you’ll be the first to know. As always, thanks for tuning in today!

Click Here to download ERS-2009-04-29 #156 We're giving away $100 everyone, plus some great goodies from the companies listed below. This is our way of way of saying thanks for listening each week! I cover more international accidents on this week's show that I think I did all last year.  There are also a couple of articles specifically addressing accountability for building access and ADA.  I think we are going to see a new trend of lawsuits against cities, companies and building owners if elevators are not meeting the needs of those with disabilities.  There's also a cool picture you don't want to miss. Here's a hint, it involves a Porsche and an elevator!

Thanks to the following companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway.   Fujitec America, GAL, The National Association of Elevator Contractors, The National Association of Elevator Safety Authorities, The Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation, COMPANY SRL, Peelle, C.J. Anderson, Truxes, EMS Group, Elevator Bob's Elevator Pictures, Minnesota Elevator, Inc, The ElevatorNetwork, Elevator Gear & The Elevator Shack Forums.
