    Hehe!!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to post, Tom. We all love you and everyone at your company. Thank you for all the wonderful stuff you make. And do.

    Oh, and for the doggy pictures. We love those, too.

    So refreshing to read this post Tom! Not that I would have expected otherwise - but it's just lovely to read such reassuring words about a favourite brand, a favourite company, and the best crew around who go above and beyond. Oh and we nutters - I mean fans - can be rather enthusiastic too!

    Cheers to all the TB family crew!

    I'm sure the book author is a nice person as well... I am looking for the book and maybe a bag that is signed by Tom Bihn himself. I'm sure most people in this forum would agree Tom Bihn and your crew are the real celebrities.

    I just placed my book order on Amazon. I can't wait to read about the accounts of various entrepreneurs including the Tom Bihn story.

    We are thinking of doing a contest/giveaway where the prize is Tom's dogeared/highlighted/Post-It marked copy of The $100 Startup... he could sign it, too.
