ORD 1, JWP 0...

Satan's Saddlebags! - what a day! Tried to get from Champaign, IL to Denver via (shudder) O'Hare Dareport. Too foggy at CMI, so I drove 3 hours through fog and thunderstorms (?) to ORD, where 300 flights were canceled.

(At least it wasn't Midway)

Finally arrived here in Greeley to speak to the High Plains No-Till Conference tomorrow and Wednesday. Should be a great group and CO is a key Super-Duper Tuesday state.

Let's all get out there and vote!

Blogging will continue when I have re-centered my cosmic essence.

Would you please consider posting on your website your upcoming speaking engagements. I would enjoy attending a presentation however never know when you are in my area unless I am lucky enough to be on the events mailing list.

Good idea. I guess I never think about people wanting to see me on purpose.

I'll try to add a sidebar with upcoming events and links soon.

BTW - the next ones will be two meetings for Ceres Solutions Crop Insurance in Crawfordsville and Rensalear, er, Rennselear, or Renseleaer...

They are in central IN and they will be on Feb 14.

Thanks, much appreciated. I trust you have a signed waiver to be away for Valentine's Day, or at least a really really good Doctor.

I had to be away last year during my anniversary, that was a tough one but my Wife is very understanding and knew it wasn't my choice.

I don't think there is much chance of you coming to West TX to speak, so I was glad I had the time (and technology) to hear you online at the CO No-till conference. You are a great speaker. Enjoyed it a lot!

Thank you very much - that was the first live-streamed podcast/broadcast presentation I have done. Glad you enjoyed it.

Have a great 2008.

Actually, I have been in W Texas a few times when my son working in Sweetwater.
