I just got a cute obscure card in the mail from an entity named SHIPLY & HALMOS. The card said THANK YOU on the front of it and when I opened it popped up and said simply,"TO DEAL IN FRIENDS IN BUSINESS IS THE ONLY BUSINESS WE DEAL IN." Now Jeff Halmos (above left) and Sam Shiply (above right) were the two guys who left Trovata and now seem to be heading out on their own as the back of the card indicates: Spring 2008.

Can't wait to see what these guys come up with. Of all the Trovata boys, the one who I always had bonded with most was Halmos. He was a sweetheart. Looking forward...
