Another weekend out of town

Last week (Thursday and Friday) the IACVB was in Austin.

Huh? What’s that, you say?

You don’t KNOW what the IACVB is?

Neither did I. No clue, in fact. Well, from this point on you will always remember (right?) that the IACVB is theInternational Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus.” Next question? Oh, you ask, why did I care?

I didn’t. But Amy, my younger daughter who lives in Chicago, attended the conference as a prospective vendor (they call them “Business Partners”) to these visitor bureaus. So Carol and I took our camper to a park near Austin, played some golf (natch!), and spent Saturday afternoon and evening with our daughter.

So, I had no time to post to the ol’ blog. But check out Amy’s company web site if you get a chance. They call themselves Lectronimo Studio, and specialize in cutting edge interactive learning experiences.

You gotta love the logo, if nothing else.

Believe it or not I do know what IACVB stands for, but I work in the industry. Very cool site your daughter has! Man I miss Austin!

Was that your daughter singing the banana phone song???

Pretty crazy!

Peg, If anybody's singing, it wouldn't be my daughter. She claims she's SO bad at singing that when whe's with a group that's doing karaoke and the urge her to the mic, she tells them, "No, just play the music and I'll do interpretative dance, but I won't sing."

Now THAT's a sight!

r.e.: The golf was very hot and humid, and the course was tough! On Sunday Carol missed breaking 100 by more than 2 or 3 strokes -- a VERY unusual occurrence. (And let's just say she beat me, and leave it at that. OH, but I DID get a par on the last hole, a dogleg par 5 with water... No, you don't want to hear all that.)

An interesting company, with a dynamite logo!

Thanks for warning me that once the website downloaded it would speak .... I jumped out of my skin. Getting back into my skin is an enormous inconvenience.

Have a great week John.

Gee spend time blogging or with the daughter in from Chicago? Not a hard decision and you definitely made the right one! :)
