I enjoyed another off-season as an Instructor for CONSPA, LIPSA, APSP, and NESPA. I am delighted to have been requested to return to Kayden Manufacturing as the Director of Sales.

Powerful words expressions of FREEDOM by FREE PEOPLE. But what of our freedoms now? Has the American public grown tired of being FREE and now are ready to surrender control of their lives to the GOVERNMENT!!


Benjamin Franklin who was a regular guest at my great, great, great, great, Grandfathers Inn (may be short a great or two), said it best after signing the Declaration of Independence...."we give you a representative republic for as long as you can keep it". Have we lost…
