These recommendations have NOT come
- someone has paid for them
- because these places are the biggest,
most expensive, "fanciest", or best advertised
- they have "important" connections and
it will benefit me to have them shown here
These recommendations HAVE come about
- the people running them treat their
fellow man in a way somehow above the day to day I experience
- the people running them show a
generosity of spirit and concern for others that should always be
praised and rewarded
- the people running them have taken
care of me, treated my time with them as important, and have made me
feel special for having been there
- and of course, because their business
has offered an experience that I have thoroughly enjoyed!
And mostly these recommendations have
come about because each of these people have become, through the
qualities they've shown to me, valued friends.

Businesses That Deserve Shameless Promotion
These are companies I have first visited
as a client or customer and over time have made important friendships with
the people who run them.
