Brian, I'll send you an update on the survey this week and will look for you in Orlando. What an easy and awesome way to pick up some feedback. Hope all is well.

As I write this I will be leaving to go to the 9pm Campus Vigil. My wife had cousin whose daughter was in the cafeteria of the May 21, 1998 Springfield, Ore shooting. My desk is less than 1 mile away from Cole Hall. At 3:08 A Squad car went past at 60-70 miles an hour. I sit a block away from a busy intersection. I had a customer sitting with me and I said: Wow I have been sitting at this desk for 14 years and have never seen a squad car go by that fast. A few minutes later one of our mechanics, who is a volunteer fire fighter, told us a level 5 ambulance call went out. That ment EVERY available ambulance in the county to respond. People from the university began picking up their cars and trucks. One lady works in the same building as the campus PD told us of officers coming with large blood satins. I had close friends son of whom I have baby sat for was walking into the area as people were running out, screaming to run the other way. We got a fed-Ex delivery at 3:20ish, He said he was delivering books, head popping, he looked into his van because he thought boxes were falling down. We at the store have many connections to people affected by this since-less tragedy. We are 2 blocks from the Campus. The question will always remain: Why? Life is on a thread. We must be ready for that thread to snap. Is there an after-life? I believe so. I also have the confidence of where I will spend eternity. If anyone reading this posting doesn’t have that confidence, I would be more that happy to talk to you about it. Please say a prayer for our community. Thanks

Hey man, here is a sneak peak at the new AC site coming out. It will be in Beta for a while but it is functional now.

I plan on sending a memo about it to others soon but let me know what you think. -RG

Hi Brian,

So what was the spring conference, the pre-pre-game show? All kidding aside, I think your right, the transactional website will be a big part of future dealerships. Your business should really take off over the next couple of years, now I don't have to feel bad about you paying for dinner:)

It about damn time, I was begining to wonder if you were ever going to join.

I think Ralph has hit on something here, this thing has exploded over the last couple of days. This is what AAISP should have done at inception, now idea sharing isn't limited to 2 conferences a year.

Speaking of the conference, how did the last one work out for you?
At 6:26pm on January 7, 2008, Steve Crim said…

I look forward to speaking with you. Call me, or I'll call you. I'm at 251-990-9498 -

Enjoy! My schedule is extremely hectic so you may want to try to reach me at 561-962-2738 if you do not hear from me by noon. Best laid plans - you understand!

I will try to reach you regardless.
