You could probably tell that we have been enjoying our summer break a little too well with this being a convention wrap up show in August instead of July. You may even detect a little podcast rust coming off J.J., Joe and Lisa Salinger during this recording. And you might even think that you have heard all we had to say about the NFB and ACB conventions from the coverage we have already uploaded. Yet, believe it or not, this isn't a typical rundown of our earlier interview s kind of episode. Tune in to hear stories and information not covered from the exhibit hall floors in this "better late than never" convention wrap up show.

Both shows may have been impacted by the summer heat, however, there were a few trickles of news raining in from above. Here are just some of the things that caught our attention in, and out, of the Exhibit Halls.

Hi Joe! I was very interested to hear that Ricki (I hope I spelled that correctly) got a Color Star color identifier because I had bought one several months ago. I agree that it is a bit over priced at $450, I also agree with Ricki in that I do not regret the purchase. It quickly became my favorite color identifier, so much so that I sold off all of the other color identifiers I had collected over the years. I will be looking forward to hearing what she has to say about it.
