Find Us Online: 12 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Happy Thanksgiving! Man . . . It's hard to believe that it's already Thanksgiving. Ok . . . That's because I'm writing this with a week still to go in October, and October is crazy busy for us at LCI. On October 10th and 11th, we put on the Landscape Expo in Long Beach and hosted about 3,500 of our closest friends and business associates in the landscape industry to a great 2-day event. Then we turned around and went to two of the largest trade shows in the industry, GIE/HNA and the ASLA Conference in Philly; all the while putting our regular issues to print and gearing up for 2019 (we're already halfway finished with the January issue). Now we're sifting through a ton of business cards and contacts, adding some finishing touches to the ALL NEW LA Details Product Search Engine and enhancing the Product Request and Subscriber Center online, not to mention that Halloween is right around the corner, the election is looming large and people are going crazy everywhere . . . So it's hard to imagine that, by the time you read this, most of the country (including us) will be resting with family and friends and enjoying the fruits of harvest time. Well . . . That's what Thanksgiving is all about . . . Looking back at the harvest of 2018 and enjoying its bounty. Hopefully, you have a lot to be thankful for. Forcing myself to stop and contemplate . . . I know I have a lot to be thankful for. From a personal level, the kids are busy, everyone is healthy, the boat is fully operational and life is good. Professionally, this has been a year of growth and accomplishment. It has been a good year in the building industry, and almost everyone we speak to is having a solid, if not phenomenal, year. For us, we've launched the LA Details Search engine (Find it, have finally settled into our new building, and everything is trending upwards. So . . . For you . . . Hopefully, you are reading this in a moment where you can reflect back on what was 2018 and smile. It's been a busy year in the business and for the country. We work in a great industry, in a great nation at one of the most interesting times in history. There's a lot to be thankful for . . . Happy Thanksgiving! God Bless . . .
