Sheri Sperry - MCNE® hi Sheri... I'll let you in on a little secret... Charlotte has been the new Hotlanta for many years now... but for some reason it's been too much of a secret. People think of us and think banking, but forget how big health care is here, the energy sector, the international business, and transporation business.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel thanks so much, Alexandra. I think that Charlotte's "story" is a good one and not well enough known. People are always surprised by what I tell them about the Queen City.

Good afternoon Nina -a big reason is the welcome business is given by North Carolina.  The opposite story in New York.
