Hey Ralph!  Thanks for adding me here. I'm excited about what's in store for me on ADM.

At 6:29am on August 2, 2014, Brian Bennington said…

Thanks Ralph! It's good to be back, even though I was only "gone" for four days.  I was surprised to see your "friend request" this early on a Saturday morning.  Considering this is the end of my Friday work day, your message made a nice finish, especially with a little Eric Burdon & The Animals as background to my writing you.  By the way, your help earlier this week was much appreciated!

Thanks Ralph.  But I think the complaint might be coming from one person.  I represent a company not just a person.  Is that a problem?

Thanks for the invite Ralph! Were looking to put together a mobile marketing program that will change the way dealers think about mobile. Also 5% of the net sales will go to benefit American Vets. Our revised website will be completed next week and will have more detail on what we do.
