With such common interests and backgrounds, its a shame we ever got off on the wrong foot.

No, ecological sensitivity; most of our customers are automotive and electronics, but the stuff ends up in the environment. It's a very strong endocrine disruptor.

I love Chicago -- 2 years in grad school -- last time i was there was for a UV trade show about 4 years ago. Get a GPS so you can avoid the expressways, and a good accountant so you can manage the tax system.

I was in Chicago only once - that was when Jimmy Carter threw a party because the Iran Embassy hostages had been released. People kept on thrusting beer into my hands. I wonder if they still do that

Yes I know this dates me big time. Oh well.

We'll be situated up near the WI border (Grayslake), so it will be a quick train ride downtown.

I'll be the one with the cowboy hat, boots, spurs, and ten pound belt buckle.

i moved to chicago from Ft. worth. chicago is a cool city. wonderfull art , history, you will like it.
lots of jass, blues, small clubs with live music.
your going to miss home, every day. but if you get to home sick.... head west 2 hrs to my house bubba.
i got lots of shiner bock in the fridge...and every robert earl keen album ever made. well have a large time.

sa, count on it. And likewise, open invite at our place, where we do The Real Thing for pizza as well as some serious Tex-Mex and New Mexico cooking (my wife has already arranged for shipment of Hatch chiles to the new digs). I'm really delighted that I'll be able to meet a bunch of the IL/WI contingent.

Scott, perhaps coincide with Janfest in October?
