Welcome to our page dedicated to things we love that are 'beyond' our work.
When I am not churning the wheels of commerce, I enjoy what I believe to be is the purest form of entertainment ever...stand up comedy.
Lane and I treated ourselves to a trip to Chattanooga recenty for nice weekend and to see one
of our favorite comedians, Brian Regan.
Brian did not disappoint!
More recently, I got the chance to see Nate Bergatze. Nate is one of my newest favorites.
He makes it all look so easy.
If you are not familiar with Nate, check him out on a visit to 'The Tonight Show'

If you are in Nashville and it seems as if there is a uneven level of 'cool' throughout the city it is probably because The Band Escondido has most of it right now.
I read about them in my favorite magazine, 'Garden & Gun', bought their new record, 'The Ghost of Escondido' and cannot stop listening.
When you factor the great sound, lyrics and musicianship along with the fact that it was recorded in one day you will understand what I mean about this duet seems to be 'hoggin' all the cool!

We started a new blog site called 'BizMuz' which is an 'abbreviation' for Business & Muse or Music.
Our intent is to highlight or profile someone who has a 'day job' but also does music on the side. We are still putting the fine sanding on the site but if you are a musician who happens to earn the bulk of your income in business and would like to be considered for a profile, let me know.
Oyster season has just a few more days left and then we bid farewell until the fall. I can say this, I did have an opportunity to visit the gulf coast and had a few religious moments eating some of the finest oysters in a long, long while.
Speaking of the water, if you are in the Hilton Head Island area, go hear my brother in
law Jim Davidson atCaptain Woody's.
Jim also has two CDs, "Which Way From Here" and "Bluffton State of Mind' and available on iTunes or his website

The Professional Services Perspective: The slow transformation of Building Information Modeling
Here’s my narrative approach to the slow transformation and integration of BIM software and tools:
“I’ve been doing this for 30 years and never needed BIM to visualize exterior cladding transitions or conflicts.”
“I’m not sure why they want a BIM model. You can quote it, but I think it is going away.”
“They want a REVIT model for record, but it can be done after the shop drawings. Do the shops in AutoCAD first.”
“This REVIT and BIM thing is getting some traction, so we are going to have to release you on the BIM work, but it seems like a waste of the owner’s
“Hey, the architect and GC want a coordinated model to provide to the owner, so I need you guys to provide a BIM model, and weekly or bi-weekly BIM coordination
“This project is actually being executed in REVIT and all of the subs are required to use REVIT for their elevations, plans and sections. Make sure you’ve designed
a deliverable that incorporates this, and review the architect’s expected LOD and qualify anything you think is not necessary.”
“I think we are going to have to use REVIT and RHINO at the same time on this project to model the crazy geometry. Make sure to coordinate teams and integrate both in developing your details.”
