How many of you remember Underdog, the lovable alter ego of Shoeshine Boy, that first appeared on TV in 1964? I didn’t know it had been around that long! Underdog would always appear whenever his love interest, Sweet Polly Purebred’s, safety was at risk.

I’m often asked about our newsletter and who does it for us. I’m always proud to answer with the exception of a few guest articles now and then, it’s developed and created entirely in-house by our own IT Radix team.

Many of our readers know that we have a second home in Vermont that I really enjoy. We go up regularly all year round. I believe my love of Vermont started in my childhood running around in the woods of Cary, NC. We moved to Cary just as the Research Triangle Park area was starting to develop.

I recently took my son to see the movie Ready Player One which takes place in the year 2045. It tells of a world where people prefer to spend their time in the "Oasis"—a virtual world where their imagination was their only limit.

When I was a kid growing up in North Carolina, we often spent our days outside in the woods behind our house just goofing off, swinging from vines into the small creeks, or hanging out in my friend’s brother’s tree stand of questionable safety.
