Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will enjoy your time here. Feel free to drop back by anytime and invite your friends to stop in, as well. Are you wondering about my avatar & pic? See my hub "The Rope" An Avatar of Art" then drop me a line and let me know your thoughts and interest in or on the subject matter

I’ve traveled the northern hemisphere from meeting the Pope in Italy to driving cattle across Wyoming. I am a previous business owner and a trainer at heart. From training collection management teams to training product knowledge and customer service/call center teams, I found people to be caring and interesting in all walks of life. I've worked with all levels of experience and corporate or charity hierarchy and I believe that listening and acting on what was heard to make a positive difference is the key to any successful position or indeed to any life experience. My favorite subjects to keep up with are food manufacturers, business analytics, art history and religion. I love to hear other’s twists and thoughts on almost any subject. Stick with us, it's a great ride...
