The funny thing about a roomful of people...

The funny thing about a roomful of people...



I spent about an 90 minutes at this networking event, I shook hands with probably 63 people, collected 47 business cards... and although for marketing and sales purposes that's pretty good, the most memorable moment was having one meaningful conversation with 1 man.

As I was outside enjoying the sweltering heat, I started off eavesdropping in on his conversation. He commented on the state of our Gross National Product.

He ended up sitting down at my table.We started off with polite banter: the pros and cons of joining certain chambers and networking groups. Blah blah blah. But then we talked about our families. Where we migrated from. How different the times are now. We talked about our mixed children and the struggles they had (have) growing up in Placer County. We talked about dirt roads, gang violence, and tattoos.

It was one of the greatest conversations I've ever had with a random stranger. And I loved it. Thank you,  random stranger. Thank you for validating my faith in humanity.

On a seperate note:

Black ice is not, as the name might suggest, actually black. Although called black, it is its transparency that permits it to blend into the road pavement no matter the type, whether asphalt, concrete or other. It forms when light rain or fog encounters a road surface whose temperature is at or below freezing. Black ice can form suddenly, so it is important to know how to prepare for, detect and handle this type of condition. The big danger behind black ice is that it is very hard to spot. Most people drive right over it, not knowing that it is any different than regular pavement until their vehicle loses traction. IF you were to spot black ice, you would look for very shiny smooth sheets that look like wet, glossy, pavement. Whene…

Chillin' with Winston Churchill

Winston Churchill
If I could time hop and bring back someone from the past to wax philosophical, I'd bring back good ole Winston. Winnie here was good at rallying up the troops and boosting morale. He was an eloquent orator who filled his speeches with inventive word play, alliteration, vivid imagery and metaphors. 
Imagine if you will, prior to tomorrow's NBA finals between the Cleveland Crybabies and the Golden State Warriors, Winston deliver's this speech in regards to the recent terror attacks in Orlando:
 ".......I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many months of struggle and suffering. 
You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is policy. 
You ask…
