Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog! I am so excited to have the opportunity to connect with all of you through what is becoming the most popular media outlet available….blogging. But before I get carried away with technology talk, let’s get down to the business of this entry.Last week, I attended the NPE show in Chicago, IL. I spent a lot of time in the Quickparts booth promoting Instant Online Quoting and some of their big customers who use it. While I was there, I got to meet a lot of you and I was happy to hear that many of you see my weekly emails and play the contests that I send out. I hope that all of you enjoy the short brain teasers that I provide each week.I was quite pleased to see how many of you enjoyed the Accordion Challenge. I came back from the show to a pleasantly full inbox and a note on my door from all of my neighbors asking me to never play the accordion again. I guess you can’t please everyone!This email provided a variety of different answers, including the correct answer which was 59. Many of you thought that when I asked for the logos on the Customers page that I would include the Quickparts logo at the top of the page. That is just a little too sneaky for my taste. A funny coincidence that was also pointed out to me was that I unintentionally spelled out SLA BUY in the second row of the word search. I did not realize that had occured, but did find it quite a humorous mistake.This week, my email is a celebration of our nation’s independence. I hope you all enjoy and I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for the current and future emails/challenges.
