Today was especially good because we had a Brown Bag Lunch. Basically, everyone gathers for an hour during lunch every other Wednesday to talk about brand culture in a constructive and educational manor.

We also talked about the original Wal-Mart vision and as we discussed we got off on some tangents, but I felt that was where it started to get really good.
