Surrounding myself with bright young student assistants is a valuable source of learning.

I continue to learn much from observing. listening to, and playing with my grandnieces and nephews. They so often make me smile, laugh, and give thanks.

Greg Schneider, my business partner and his wife Jane, continually provide me with opportunities to grow, to learn, and to think and share my areas of expertise while benefiting from theirs. And I learn about fishing on North Lake!
