Although I must admit I have seen some people take the “tweeting at” to a level that’s….. Well I will leave that open…

A few months ago we saw an ad for Billion Dollar Buyer and thought it looked interesting. Since we live in Houston, we were even more interested as the gentleman who is starring in the show (Tillman Fertitta) is a prominent businessman from here. We decided to watch it and see what it was about.  I was really happy when I watched the first show and saw a company that Mark and I were actually one of their first customers…we really liked these guys and were hoping they would Continue reading
