:idea: Pssssst.... Don't tell anyone but tomorrow August 27 - is National Horstman Feedback Day (aka Mark's Birthday). It doesn't show up on most calendars. :idea:

The Horstman is a rare species indeed. If you happen to encounter a Horstman in your travels, approach with caution, a firm handshake and only one carry-on bag. You don't want to startle the Horstman.

The tradition on this esteemed day is to give the Horstman some feedback. Horstmans are known to be rather tall, so if you need to, don't hesitate to stand on a large soapbox :lol: and give your feedback from there.

Remember, if you are new to the feedback game, your initial feedback should be overly positive.

Please enjoy National Horstman Feedback Day and remember to use your feedback responsibly.

Love it!

Horstmans also like smiles. Raising your eyebrows is also recommended when approaching a Horstman. :o

I don't recommend approaching a Horstman with eyes fixed on the floor and the back of your hand rubbing against the hallway wall. ;-)

Oh yes, eye contact is key!

Be sure to mention roosters. Mark and Mike *love* roosters.

Roosters are important contributors to our podcasts.

Mark and Mike: Keep up the great work.

OK, I'm feeling lost. Is it Mark's birthday or something?

Birthdays are networking 101 baby!...j/k

Does Mark have a good recipe for chicken soup?

Once, while visiting my grandparents' farm as a small child, I was attacked by a rooster. Grandma made chicken soup that night... ;-)

If Mark doesn't have one himself, I'm sure someone in his network could help him out.

Many happy returns, Mark!
