Throwing the Baby out with the Reclaim Water…

About a year or so ago, I wrote a tip about growing pains and how my grandson, Madden, was dealing with them at the time. Back then, Madden was about only 8 months old. He just recently passed the 20 month mark, so there have been quite a few pains and quite a […]

In the Grand Scheme of Things

In the grand scheme of things, there are two unsung heroes of the tunnel car wash. If they were on a football team, they’d be the offensive linemen. The guys you only hear about when they make a mistake. If they played baseball, they’d be the right fielder on a team playing vs all right […]

“Get Busy Living, or Get Busy Dying”

Have you ever seen the movie Shaw Shank Redemption? In one scene, two inmates are talking about one’s plans to live out his life in Mexico running a hotel and taking his guests out deep sea fishing. When the other reminds him that Mexico is far away and that he is currently locked up in […]

Mad World

Where do I begin? This morning, while having coffee and reading the news online, I came across an article that really rattled me.

PRESIDENT’S COLUMN

I recently attended a seminar where the speaker emphasized the importance of keeping your audience engaged. He suggested “switching gears,” and rotating between related topics to keep people focused and their energy levels up.

With that idea fresh in my mind and my first cup of coffee in hand, I will start this column with congratulations […]

VENUS & MARS

Dear Venus and Mars,

We are headed into our busy season… what have you done differently this year to make sure you are ready to maximize your volume?

 

Venus Says

There are several things we are hoping to get done before winter really arrives in the valley. Some are outside touchups but others are those inside that will help […]

Working Order?

Things don’t always work in the order you want them to.

In an article a few months back, I spoke about my grandson, Madden, and how he was doing with his growing pains. By the time you read this, Madden will have turned 1 and most probably be not just walking but running, I’m sure!
