Gone Fishin’ – Guest Posts June 14 to 29


Dear Blog Readers:

I've occasionally taken a “blog holiday” for a week or so, but this year, my wife and I are taking a two-week vacation. I'm going to do my best to stay away from email, blogging, tweeting, etc. Many of my friends and co-workers are skeptical I can do this, to say the least.

Instead of letting these pages stay stagnant, I've asked some bloggers to write guest posts — some of them you know, some of them might be new to you.

I hope you enjoy their posts. Comments will be turned on, being moderated by my friend and fellow Texan lean thinker, Mike Lombard. Thanks to Mike and thanks, in advance, to my guest bloggers! See you all about July 1. I'll be back, well-rested and ready to blog!
