Destination Downtown 2008

I had the pleasure this week to speak at the Tristate Conference of the Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas Main Street programs in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. We had a great time, spoke to a group of about 85 Main Street Managers about Community Branding, wrapped up the Gulf Coast revitalization that we have been working on for the past 8 months, and had time to visit with old friends.
I am so proud of the work that our team has done over the past 8 months, and am sad to not be able to monitor this dynamic region's progress, but am looking forward to their bright future.
We wrapped up the conference with a street party in downtown Bay St. Louis, and this image kind of captures it all!

The World We Live In-Rutland Vermont

Rutland Vermont is a great place, fantastic downtown, great people. But in every place I go, there are some great photo opts.
Here are a couple of my favorites:
1. Everybody votes for some candidates

2. This is where I DON'T WANT TO GO WHEN I DIE!!!!!

3. This is actually funny because when we saw it, Tripp said, so if you had a house like that, why would you paint it "Haunted"

Lilah, Meet Magic Hat

I am working in Vermont this week, and I arrived in Burlington at lunch today. I had a couple of hours to run around so I decided to stop by one of my favorite craft breweries, Magic Hat.I looked around to see if there were any hats or shirts that I couldn't live without, but I simply didn't see anything for me. BUT, I did find a certain awesome beer shirt for my lovely little lady!

New Semi Regular Feature

I am happy to announce what will become a semi-regular feature on my blog. As most of you know, I spend quite a bit of time on the road, and a good bit of that time is spent visiting every bathroom in the country. So, armed with my iPhone, I am proud to announce Potty Mouth, my pictorial collection for interesting bathroom stall messages. Expect the first post this week!!!

Wiener in Wyoming

Well, Here I go

So, as I prepare to become a father and enter this new phase of my life, I figured it was time for me to start blogging. Come join the ride if you are interested. My travels with work keep life interesting, and then the time I get to spend with my wife makes my life worthwhile. JUST BE WARNED, I HAVE DYSLEXIA< AND CAN"T WRITE WELL!!!

Carthage, Mississippi

Well, I spent the first part of this week working in Carthage Mississippi. Carthage has some of the greatest people in the south. they are a great little community. We had fantastic turnout for both our public meetings, as we helped them design their future of their community. They had some great stories, I got to see how pork rinds are made, and for those of you who are Dixons/Central Snacks fans, that was the place! 

We stayed over in Philadelphia,MS, home of the Neshoba County Fair. This place was amazing, and I can only imagine the wild time to be had come each July!
