Let’s face it, without you I’d be talking to myself. But in all seriousness you've all been so genuine in your support for the show. From correcting me on my pronunciations, to setting me straight when my comments may not have hit the major talking points. This little thing has turned into something much larger and with a worldwide reach than I ever imagined it would become. What captivates me even more is when you reach out, comment and share your own thoughts either in email or in person. So this year in addition to being thankful for family, friends and work I'm truly thankful for all of you who fall into both the friends and family category. I have met so many cool and caring people and I'm proud to call the elevator industry my "other" family. Here's hoping your Turkey Day is as stress free as it can be and for those of you traveling be safe.
