Old joke (credit to Davey Bold - anybody know what happened to him?)

This fellow from Britain goes to Saint Louis to visit family. One day, he's riding in a cab, and while having a conversation with the driver, the latter asks him if he'd like to try a little riddle. The Brit says "That sounds like fun."

So the cabbie says: "It isn't my sister, and it isn't my brother, but it's a child of my father and mother... who is it?"

The Brit muddles the question for a while, and can't figure it out, so he gives up.

The cabbie says: "It's ME!!!"

The Brit says: "That's clever! I'll have to try that on my buddies back home..."

So he returns, and one day while at the pub with his friends, he says: "How would you like to try a little riddle I picked up in the 'colonies'?" They all say: "That sounds like fun."

So he says: "It isn't my sister, and it isn't my brother, but it's a child of my father and mother... who is it?"

And all the friends start thinking out loud, but can't figure it out... so they say:" Who is it?"

And the fellow says: "It's a cabbie in Saint Louis!!"

Two NYC taxi licenses recently sold for $705,000. Now that is steep!

Reminder: Fest crew meeting tomorrow afternoon (2-15-2014) If you didn't get your PM but want to come, please message me.



And yes, I did mean $22,338 annually. The company sells me unlimited access to their service contracts for $325 a week. (They sell the same thing with a car for $498, add another $96 for a hybrid.) $22,338 includes my car payment. Anyway...

I'm off to find couples in love and take their money, hope to have lunch with some of you tomorrow!

I think the wife and I are going to try to attend. The biggest obstacle for us is that my wife works in a school and we have 2 school age children that start school right after Labor Day. Wife's a little concerned being 10 hours away from home just a few days before we have to get everybody back into the swing of things. But we are going to try to make it happen.

Have a good meeting! Looking forward to hearing the outcome. Give me a call before/during/after if you'd like.

I would just get a early start on Monday. That's what we did when the Fest was in Michigan. The same thing on Friday. Hope to see you there.

Okay I think it went well. There were 7 of us, everyone showed up who said they would and we had a good discussion. Doled out some ideas and assignments and no one ran off screaming. Looks like we have a good group, very positive about everything.

Only two vendors have contacted to date, and we are going to nose around locally too.

We are looking forward to another meeting in the next couple months, in the meantime I and others will be getting some ducks in a row and we'll let you know.

VeeDub, I'll be in touch this week. If you have an ideal time some afternoon......lemme know.

Cheers

St. Louis, St. Petersburg, Santa Clara, Sault Ste. Marie, ....
The poll could have been written without a location specified and my answer would still be: yes.

...traditionally, historically, but not always (see: 2001). The US and Canadian Labor/Labour Day holidays coincide to make this a convenient time, but it is not a requirement.

Sounds like a good start I think you should have a meeting once a month.
