Leading the Change (New CAC Coordinator)

Tribe, please give a very warm welcome to our new CAC Coordinator, Irene Johnson. A former Environmental Engineer who just retired after 36 years working for a national electrical utility company (she started in grade school).


Aquascape is now officially Irene’s second job!


Irene is replacing the very respected Mrs. Linda Rodriguez (whose service to Aquascape and our customers will always be deeply appreciated) We hired Irene with one primary goal in mind…to take the Certified Aquascape Contractor network to the next level!


Irene is, for all intents and purposes, a true Aquascape groupie! She discovered Aquascape after reading the infamous Chicago Tribune article that transformed my part-time job of building ponds into my full-time career. In 1995, I designed and installed her pond, working alongside Ed and Brian.


Irene’s pond is pure vintage!


Every pond tour, every sale we had… at EVERY event, Irene would come out to support us! In fact, she’s been telling me for years that someday she would come and work for me.


That day has finally arrived!


To say I’m excited to have a professional of Irene’s caliber in charge of our signature customer group would be an understatement!


Folks, you haven’t seen nothing yet! Big plans, baby!!! B-I-G plans!!!


Irene has a heart for ponds and a mind that’s used to dealing with nuclear engineers! (Take it easy on her, fellas… She doesn’t dig goats!!!)


So, from the bottom of my heart I say, “Welcome to the TEAM, Irene!!!”

How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything

This is hard for me to say as a Buckeye fan…I love Michigan Coach Jim Harbaugh!

There I said it.

He was a winner as a player, a winner as a coach, and he’s shaking up how things get done with his unconventional approach to keep his winning streak alive. Whatever it takes to succeed, is certainly the motto he has always lived by. If you’re standing in between him and his objective consider yourself warned!


Maybe that’s why he’s worn out his welcome at most places he’s been.

I have news for all his critics and in particular his former bosses in San Francisco who ran him out of town after multiple playoff births and even a Super Bowl appearance after handing him a team that hadn’t posted a winning record in ten years!

Don’t enjoy the fruits of his labor and then criticize his methods. That’s not the way life works. Beggars can’t be choosers. And if you wanted mediocrity than don’t have the lack of foresight to hire a damn winner!!!

Hope you start enjoying the “Jim Harbaugh” show as much I have. I for one am finding myself motivated by seeing him perform.

Go Bucks (he’s gunning for us!)
