    It's interesting that I have found a university with my name: www.nicholls.edu [​IMG] And their mascot is a Colonel, and their logo is a sword. [​IMG] Perhaps their shirts with "Harvard on the Bayou" are a little bit much, but what the heck. I ordered several "Nicholls State University" t-shirts for my use.....

    Does anyone else have a namesake college?

    It seems I have a park named after me right here in Wisconsin!

    http://www.cityofwaupaca.org/poehlman.htm

    I guess we're kind of obligated to have our family picnics there from now on.

    From what they tell me, the bronze statue of me goes up next week!

    Wait... this just in...

    Anyone from Syracuse, NY? It seems there's a "Poehlman House" pub listed as a historical landmark.

    Poehlman House
    2654 E. Genesee St.
    Syracuse, New york

    If someone could get me a T-shirt from the "Poehlman House", I'd gladly repay you for I'd be the envy of all my siblings.

    There's a "Cameron's Books" in Portland. Of course I have the t-shirt.

    Keith,

    I'll give you ten bucks to name your kid "John."

    I'd give you something that was named after me, but it's just too easy.

    An imaging company ... www.savin.com

    I once sent them my resume for a position I was not even qualified for. Few days later I receive a call from a very out of breath HR person asking me to come down for an interview. Saying that they had to meet me ... weird. [​IMG]

    I will have to look into this some more. Hopefully there is some inheritance money there .. haha
