Had a nice session this morning with Marc and Josh. We continue to look at the market opportunity in front of us with cautious optimism. Hopeful the technology team in India will serve us well. Just waiting on a proposal that we can act on. Here's a pic of Josh -- personal trainer turned web entrepreneur.

Sunday Recap

Day turned out very nice . . . extra hour of sleep, brunch downtown, and then off to the Ballet. It was my first time to the Orpheum and my first time to a Ballet Memphis performance. After that we went down to the RiverArtsFest. All-in-all a very nice way to spend a beautiful day in downtown in Memphis, TN.
