    Thanks for a wonderful, lively, thought-provoking discussion. I enjoyed meeting everyone and getting the lay of the land. See you next time.

    What I enjoyed most was the discussion of Lear's late "dowries" for his two daughters. Fascinating! And I thought of Shakespeare manipulating the politics on stage to make James I, the real Duke of Albany-- highest among Shakespeare's patrons-- to be the last authority standing on stage to say to the people "Our present business is general woe." -- At least the Scottish King James was there to straighten out all of the crazy inabilities of the English to decide who would be their next alpha chimpanzee male, right? I loved the discussion. Thank you all!

      well, maybe 4-5 times <blush> but I’m still an amateur, and value the contributions, comments and considerations of everyone. I’m just one voice.... Bill

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
