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!

Lots to cover here on the show today everyone! We’ll chat about the week’s worth of elevator news that I found online. We’ll also talk about the Inaugural Toronto Boat Cruise to benefit the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation of Canada that’s fast approaching, June 4th, get your tickets today everyone! And I’ll cover my thoughts on the NAEC Sponsored Webinar, which covered the NEII ® Code finder Database that was held last Thursday.  This show is filled to the brim with extra elevator fun! Our Prize pack giveaway is next week and we’re giving away a toolbox, filled with goodies.

For those of you listening here in the United States, Monday is Memorial Day. More than just a three day weekend, this is our opportunity to remember those who have died while fighting for our freedom.  Take a moment to remember a family member for their service to our country. Share a story about them so that they will be remembered by our younger generations. And thank a Veteran for serving!
