So here I am stuck with a Buddhist temple and no warranty.  Thanks a million.

I analyzed their operations 500 years ago and told them they had a flaw in their business plan.

If only they had searched out Blader Industries for consultation they might have still been in business. Grin

Well, for 1400 plus years, it remained a family business.  It sounds as if they had a pretty solid copulation strategy in place.

In point of fact, it is public knowledge that we were on retainer and consulted for that particular dynasty. 

They were a good customer, who asked for and received superior advice from our firm.

Of course it is always a sad thing to not only lose a longstanding and valued client, its been all the more difficult because we've had to resort to legal mechanisms to secure past receivables owed to our firm, which comes at a particularly odd time given the fact that I am no longer on speaking terms with my attorney.

As for our corporate record, I'll just say this much:  We hit our benchmarks and milestones, as we do with every client.  I can assure you, they didn't go out of business for lack of progeny. 

And, no, for those of you "thinking ahead" about our various operations in the far east, our ties to Japanese Imperial Family were severed in WWII after my grandfather, the well-known copulist and pacifist Adolphus Blader VI, on chautauqua in the Phillipines, was sucked up in the conflagration when his taxi driver became lost on the streets of Manila and he subsequently became an unwilling participant in the Bataan Death March.  As history shows, that anyone survived that war crime is largely attributed to my grandfather's ability to enlist surreptitious support from the Kongo family, who, at great personal danger, secured food and water and what meager medical supplies were available so that some prisoners could survive.  But I digress.

It is no small coincidence that the Hirohito family difficulties coincide with the severing of this other long standing business relationship.
