I am sure that when AR people began planning Rain Camp for Dallas this year, they didn't plan on Mother Nature's participation in making it rain.  She sure did show up, just in time to give our out-of-state visitors a true measure of how much fun we can have out here in Texas making it rain.

I just hate it when people say "...but I'm NOT a salesperson!!!!!".  People say that and then they make The Face,  the same facial expression people get right after a Great Dane fills the room with dog-made methane.  These people act as if they are smelling Eau de Dog-poo.  When people try and di...
