From blogging buddies to dear friends. We owe the relationship to AR, otherwise we may never have met.

Here is the lesson for me. AR has opened up a new world for me, as I started blogging 16 months ago. I would never have believed how much I got out of it. The folks that I have met online, has been priceless. The folks that I have learned from, has been priceless. The folks that I now have available, throughout the country, to refer business too, is priceless.

Cronrad, you were a delight to spend time with and spending the time at one of my favorite restaurants, well it doesn't get any better than that.

Joe Petrowsky, owner of Right Trac Financial Group, Inc. NMLS #2709 and I met for the first time for lunch yesterday at 85 Main St. in Putnam, Ct.  Joe and I have traded comments on each other's blogs.  We have the same political tilt.  Joe greets me with a great big smile and a warm handshake.  We immediately start talking like we have know each all our lives.  No shyness or awkwardness between us.  It might have to do with our personalities.

It is so strange how Joe and I started from such different back rounds only to wind up with similar goals and business successes.  Joe is an unabashed American Patriot.  His parent's immigration from such a difficult life to the United States is a Horatio Alger story.  Joe has come from humble origins.  Farm boy and English was not his first language.  Life's pressure can crush you from it's weight or produce a diamond from all those pressures.  Joe is a diamond.

We had lunch at the 85 Main restaurant.  James Martin is the Chef/Owner/General Manager of 85 Main.  He also took our picture.  Not much he could do with those ingredients.  He established 85 Main in 2005.  He is a self taught chef with incredible drive and talent.  His 85 Main is a jewel in the revitalization of downtown Main Street in Putnam, Ct.  85 Main has been honored with many awards.  The bottom line is that 85 Main is a terrific place for lunch or dinner.  The food is varied and terrific.  The prices are very competitive.
