Busy, Busy

This past few weeks has been rather hectic, with lots of time spent on the road. I've driven well over 2,500 miles and flown another 1,800. I hate living out of a suitcase, but April has shaped up to be that type of month. I've been traveling for business, for pleasure, and for family responsibilities. There are some days I can't tell whether I'm coming or going!

Hectic or not, the show must go on (as they say), so I'm glad to be able to send you this week's issue of the newsletter. I hope you have a great week!
