10 more = 10 years and then time for the blog to retire…..

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

I still remember the day. It was way back in May of 2006 when Frank Summers, Joan Treistman, & Christopher Dallion had a great idea they wanted to share. They said there was something new in social media called a blog and they thought I should write one. Their feeling was that it would be something I would like to do and that would help the company move forward.

Their position was since I look at things differently, tend to be pretty creative, am deadline oriented, know a lot of people, and am very goofy at times that I should do it and it would be successful.

I must say after a number of no’s I finally said yes. For many of you who are hearing the story for the first time, I can 100% confirm it was not my idea to write a blog but three team members who clearly were smarter than I was, saw something I didn’t, and were 100% right.

With that said, July 30, 2016 will be the 10 year anniversary of the Merrill Dubrow Blog. I have been thinking about it for a while and I feel now is the right time to have it come to a close.

My intent all along was a couple of things. To share, to learn, and have fun!

On my end you taught me so much and I hope the feeling was mutual.

Thank you for your years of reading and sharing your feelings!

Yes I could google it – but I’d rather have you explain it to me!

For those of you who haven’t been to my office I am located in Irving, Texas and can watch the planes land at DFW airport. In the past few weeks they have started to build a large/tall structure that appears to be a water tower.

I have asked no less than 6 people “what is a water tower?” and after their initial response of it has water in it, not one person can explain more than that.

So I ask you:

  • What is a water tower?
  • What is the real purpose?
  • Does every city/state have a water tower?

I really need some help on this one and hope you will respond.
