  1. This forum was on fire this weekend. I have never seen such activity. It is really great to see.  I remember when we had very limited participation.

      Sounds amazing. That's what life is all about. And, can't beat Italian food either, but I am partial to that!

       

  9. 9 degrees this morning here in Indiana. This is the coldest I can remember for this time of year. I guess it is just global warming.

      Thanks guys! We shed a lot of tears and shared a lot of laughs at the Memorial Service. His daughter now works for me and is doing a great job.

  12. July was flat for us. We were down about 1 % but August has started strong. Last week I was helping my daughter move. She is now in Acworth, Ga, near Kennesaw north east of Atlanta.

  13. June has been running strong. We will be up between 25-30 percent over last year.

    1. Joe Marconi

      Joe Marconi
