Each week I tell myself I will read more posts in the Rain ... not just engage at the AR water cooler.  Each week I do not get around to doing so.  I do spend a lot of time on the phone talking with AR peeps.  

Thank you for your weekly Second Chance posts, Carol Williams

Carol Williams I will try to remember to tag you in some of the Blogs I read here on AR to help them get mentioned in your summary.

I was pleased to see Gail Hartnett going to be on next week.  I have known her for probably 30 years here in Boise and appreciate all she does for our industry. I will be out of town, but will still try to log in that day.
