Stan has been much help to me as well, but I'm worried about him flying around Kansas. I'm afraid someone might drop a house on him.
Seriously though his branding, marketing and networking instructions are top notch.

I'm trying to picture ...
I'm trying to picture you ... wearing bib coverals with a red checked hanky hanging out of your pocket with a pitchfork in your hand. They won't know you when you get back to California.

Gee, D Craig,
I've lived here for about 10 years and haven't seen anyone fitting that description. Wichita is about 500,000 population. Around here, they're oilmen. aircraft employees and if they live outside the city limints, they're cattlemen on real horses that round 'em up. bibs don't do so well on horseback or on the Spirit/Boeing/Ratheon/Cessna/Learjet/Bombadier/Hawker Beechcraft lines.
We're also the home of Koch Industries, the largest privately owned company in the nation, possibly the world, the starting place of Applebees and Pizza Hut (the founder is still found locally after selling off and starting Papa Johns) plus the new home of the Gordon Parks collection at Wichita State University.
Please don't tell me you're another one of those who know the east coast, west coast and it's just a gray area between???

All I know ....
All I know is from movies, like State Fair, and from driving Interstate 80 in 1970 when I drove home from California to Pennsylvania. All I remember from that is it was all flat and no speed limits. You know, when cruising about 105 it goes by pretty quickly. So, it's not all like in "State Fair" ?
You know I'm kidding. That's like saying everyone here in the Pa. Dutch Country is Amish and drives a horse and buggy. When I wrote that about Stan I was picturing, in my mind, an image in a book I own by Jack Reznicki where he was posing like "the American Gothic" repleat with a pitchfork in his hand.

Interstate 80 and State Fair are both in Iowa. <g> I can now refer to you as a West Virginian.

"wearing bib coverals with a red checked hanky hanging out of your pocket with a pitchfork in your hand."
Sorry I didn't get to this sooner, just got back from Florida.....actually if you replace the coveralls with a double breasted suit, and a 36 in Louisville slugger instead of the pitchfork, you'd be right on the money......

Linda, I forgot to mention, I will need a bat (preferably wood, I can work with metal) for the seminar. Thanks......
