What an incredible show today! It all started with a great interview on the subject of trust. My guest was Greg Link, co-author of the book, SMART TRUST: Creating Prosperity, Energy, and Joy in a Low-Trust World. I read the book in preparation for the interview and recommend it to you heartily. You can listen to the interview by playing the podcast of Hour 1 from my December 1 show at http://AskHandymanBob.info.
The book is available to purchase at all bookstores as well as on-line at http://amzn.to/VdzVYI. Happy reading.
My friend from the Home Builders Association, Brandy Marsh has just inked an agreement between her stores, Area Floors, and the Oregon Food Bank. She has signed on to act as a year-round food drop-off site accepting canned goods and other non-perishable foods to help fight the growing need for food baskets across Oregon. To keep interest alive throughout the year, creative marketer that she is, Brandy has announced a monthly contest to be judged on-line through her Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/AreaFloorsOnline. Both of her stores have a food donation barrel that will be decorated. Each month the decorations will change. Your vote will determine which store wins bragging rights and a trophy for that month. Simply visit her page, click on the OFB Barrel Contest link, and cast your vote. Ideally, you will also decide to cast your vote in person by stopping in at one of her stores and dropping off your donation for the Food Bank. The stores are located in Portland at 8112 SE Foster Rd and in Tigard at 11945 SW Pacific Hwy.
