"... the parts that I can let them appreciate or lead them to appreciate are very easy, that the noun is important, that it carries its own power. Emerson called it the speaking language of things -- to find the right word. Twain said the difference between the word and the right word is the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning. And I tell them, we're in the lightning business". -- Roger Rosenblatt

  1. A mobile fitness and training business? That's great - I'll get Heidi to bring her treadmill to my house on those days when there's a cyclone outside or it's -10 degrees.

  2. That would be a two day trip for Heidi. So, she can stop overnight at my place on the way to yours.
