The Fountains of Kansas City

Originally uploaded by Joe Ganci
Nice 14-block area of fountains and shops. Did you know that Kansas City has more fountains than any other city except Florence, Italy? Also, many of the fountains in KC were sculpted by Italian artists. All this was due to the founder of Hallmark, who loved fountains and Italy.

Kansas City, Friends and Barbecue!

I met my old friends John and Jeanene Underwood and Chris Phillips at Jack Stack Barbecue while working in Kansas City. Yum - very good barbecue! Interestingly, when I was flying to KC, my seatmate was on her way there to visit her grandchildren and she told me that her niece works at Jack Stack and to ask for her, but her niece was still away on maternity leave. :-)

I took this while visiting my client on the fourth floor of Audi / Volkswagen Headquarters. Pretty cool, huh? The other photo shows it from above and you can get a better idea of its actual size.
