Michael Gerber

I returned from a fantastic conference in Dallas Monday night. First, in the interest of honesty and transparency, I want to tell you that I didn't follow my own advice.

When you have to travel

Gas prices keep going up. The pain at the pump has caused many folks to reconsider their summer vacation plans. There has been a buzz of the "staycation" option. This is where people opt to stay home and explore their own community and enjoy their own surroundings instead of spending money to travel.

Edsel Drive has some new residents to boast about. I joined in the celebration of the ribbon cutting at Mrs. T's Baked Goods last week. Tasty treats were available for all to enjoy.
