Ericast 205 - Minnesota Expo Experiences
More than usual, this week's episode is a bit... Random? No, it's focused on one topic. Unstructured? Well, it has a beginning, middle, and end. Lame? Ah! That might be the right word.
I took the girls to the 2013 Home and Landscape Expo at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis. It was really fun... but, at its core, it was us wandering around looking at booths and talking to vendors. Our Aspen Air problems (they're a heating and cooling contractor) were noteworthy, but that's still an issue-in-progress so you'll just have to listen to this podcast for the full scoop... then listen to future ones to see if we ever do get the gift cards that they promised us.
The 2013 Healthy Life Expo was good, too, but nothing too earth-shattering there. I could make you a list of the vendors I saw and give you mini-reviews of their products, if you'd like? (I have no idea who made the roasted cocoa beans as a coffee substitute... but I can look that up, because they were really yummy...)
As usual, 206-339-3742 (a.k.a. 206-339-ERIC) is the place to call and leave a message with your thoughts. Or email me (eric) at ericast.com -- nobody ever emails me, and it's such a lovely old method of communicating. It's one step beyond Comcast's request that you mail them or SEND A TELEGRAM (no, I'm not kidding!) if you need to communicate with them... but that's a story for a different podcast...
