Daylight Saving Comes to an End


By: David Gravois

It is once again that time of the year when we must figure out how to change our vehicle clock, adjust every clock we own, and make sure our family does the same. As much as we may miss that extra hour of early evening sunlight, we must all set our clocks back 1 hour on Sunday, November 6. Not a fan of daylight savings time? You can thank New Zealander George Hudson for proposing the idea in 1895. Read More...

July 7&7


By: The Pipeline

Which one of your Danos coworkers would make the best U.S. President and why?

Brooke Hebert - Mr. Hank would be a great president.  He has run a successful business for many years and cares about his employees. I think he would do the same with this country and get it back on the right track with values of faith and family.
Scott Friedlander - Hank Danos. He's has done such a great job leading Danos, I believe he is ready for the next step of leading the whole country.
Brady Hebert - Reed Pere. He is a lion and that is what America needs. Who doesn’t want to go to battle led by a lion?
Melissa Adams - The first person that comes to mind is Mr. Hank because he is trustworthy and has an honest face. People like him and are drawn to him.
Gary Mitchell - Craig Gros. He already looks like George Bush.
Joni Leday - Jeremy Adkins. He had some serious dirty politics skills going on at Safety Focus.
Seth Guidry - The best presidents in U.S. history all had prior military service, were dedicated to govern according to the will of the people and exhibited true patriotism.  A few names come to mind when I attempt to fit co-workers into that criteria, so I’d have to pick the one I’ve worked with the most; JT Matheny, JSM material coordinator.
