JEEZ, I have been working with the guy for 4 years and he still can't spell my last name

it is SKERRETT, Tom Skerritt the actor spells his name wrong
If you have not seen Suzanne speak or met her you have got to come, she has years of "in the field" knowledge that is amazing, not only is she smart but she is delightful as well

Can't make it as I'm speaking at the NJ Landscape Contractor Trade Show on the 3rd & hosting Chip Osborne's class on the 4th, both in NJ.

I wish I could attend ELA as many great people are there that I enjoy talking with.
