Morning in Indy: Obama disappoints with his crack about small town America

Gary Vaynerchuk, the wine guy, reminds us of the importance of saying "thanks" and "telling people you appreciate them"

Just think of how easy it is to practice what Gary Vaynerchuk is talking about in this two-minute video. 

Tell folks thank-you and that you appreciate them.  It's simple and it's meaningful.  Such a simple thing can be a day-changer for so many people.  This is something for everybody, politicians, pastors, business people and neighbors.

My impression is that this guy practices what he preaches.  By-the-way, also check out his video podcasts about wine.
