Frank's Friday Wrap Up 12/2

Hey Team! Here's a quick wrap up of the week's top stories that caught my eye:

Bad news for this truckstop that went bankrupt after getting over 400,000 in stimulus funds. Yikes!

As the resident social media expert, it's great to hear Truckinginfo.com talk about social media in the industry.

Here's an interesting LinkedIn conversation on becoming more effective load planners. I'm curious to hear your thoughts on this one, let me know what you think.

Land line Magazine wrote a piece on Wreaths Across for America, reminding us about the spirit of the season.

And for my weekly @EatThisNotThat tweet: "Doc says: "You have elevated blood sugar." Eat this: oatmeal, quinoa, beans, apples, and dark chocolate!" Always great info!

Are you a customer? Do you have a smartphone? Check out Scott's post inviting you to try our new mobile version of our load boards! It's pretty cool, if I do say so myself.

Have a good weekend. I'm off to Portland's Holiday Brew Fest. Good company, beer and food all under the giant Christmas tree... hard not to get into the holiday spirit!

Seatbelts, everyone!
