Jan, sorry you couldn't be here. Final count was 215 cars, over 450 people. The big parade through downtown Kansas City this afternoon was 201 smarts long and had people coming out of shops, offices and restaurants to stand on the sidewalk and watch the cars roll by. Quite an experience for all parties concerned. Thanks to the two local smart centers for arranging everything!

some one start a photo album and post your photos so those of us that didn't go can view them with great jealously!

It's on! Nearly 200 smarts, well over 300 people, lots of vendors and the President of smart USA, all here in KC. If you're here you'll enjoy the BBQ dinner this evening and the parade to downtown KC tomorrow. If you're not here, you really missed out on a very special event.

There is some confusion about where and how detailed the scheduled panel swap session will be. If we have any ro accomplish, we'll post where and when. We'll try to do them at the hotel in some suitable location. No charge to watch and competent help even appreciated. Any donations to charity.

Cheers, Bob @ Natalie's Swatch Shoppe

$500 exchanged for similar good panels, and we still have black, white, blue and silver.

For those who may not be familiar with our own private weatherman, Jefferios is up in Duluth working for the local TV station He is qualified to fix the weather for us!! Keep it up with the voodoo dolls, a little extra karma never hurts!!

Re: Weather guessers!

I hold my hand out the window and trust what I see and feel! Not only are those guys examining chicken entrails with such a complex biosphere to work with, but in KC, the weather can vary block by block almost!

I've got my voodoo dolls working!
