That's right! Because no business owner should ever make enough profit to do anything but keep his head barely above water. He should never be allowed to take a vacation. Especially to anywhere fun and nice.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

OK, back to the living. I am seriously worked over. 6 straight days of solid snowboarding in killer powder, and then a computrainer class this morning at 5am with only 4 hours of sleep. I can barely walk. Plus I bounced off a couple dozen trees, got a gash in my outer lip, chunk taken out of my inner lip from my teeth, bruised rib from spearing a broken branch, sore shoulders from impacts, and last but not least a black and blue right asscheek from skipping off moguls. I loved every minute of it. Extended report coming later with pics and video. With 3 feet of snow in 2 days, it was the absolute best time I have ever had boarding.

Mr. Lewis, what do you do for a living? Make sure you have your big boy panties on when responding.

I have some, but none of the really good stuff because my frickin' 8 meg card decided to not work all of a sudden out there, so I only had my backup 2 meg, which went fast. I do have one clip though of me crashing no less than 5 times in like 7 minutes or something. I was on fire that day.

right, that's not why we run businesses!

we run companies so obama and democrats can grow ineffective and inefficient bureaucracy and BIG GOVERNMENT and to support those too lazy to try and support themselves, bailout corrupt institutions, which gov undoubtedly will meddle with and muck up, create a bloated broken health care system and ruin the US economy as we know it.

Well saturday I'll be in wisconsin, I have my kids this weekend and we have my nieces birthday party at noon and work Christmas party at night so that won't work, BUT I have to bring the kids back to IA early sunday morning, which will allow me to get some place in time to catch the Division playoffs whether it's in IL or WI. This could work out well with other things I have to get... so i'll be out of state sunday
