    Dead Men's Steam School

    I had the pleasure and good fortune today, to be able to attend Dan Holohan's Dead Men's Steam School in Davenport, Iowa. Dan is an outstanding presenter with a humorous and down to earth style, superior intellect, and sharp wit. I was proud of our mid-western audience because Dan informed us that "you guys are a nice looking bunch of people and that will make my day much more pleasant than it was when I had to speak to that bunch of uglies last week!" Well, I suspect he says that to every group.

    It was an interesting time and one of the best presentations I have ever attended. I have thought about driving to one of his steam school presentations, even if I had to drive hundreds of miles to get there, so I was especially pleased when I found out he was coming to the Quad Cities.

    Thank you, Dan!

    Thanks, Dave.

    Just got home. This being my last two years of doing seminars, I was happy to be able to be with you all in Davenport for this one. Best-looking group in a long time. Thanks for taking such good care of yourselves, and me. :-)
