To my friends here

Well, we had our meeting today and the results suck. Our staff has been reduced down to 5, compared to the minimum 20 from a couple years ago (budget problems, I'm thrilled I still have a job). What that basically means is that I'm gonna be working my @$$ off and I'm not gonna be around much. I care a lot for y'all, just wanted you to know that I'm not ignoring anyone or anything. I'll check in when I can!

Your nickname always reminds me of times I've tried to light my grill on damp days, but without fail, it always seems to light. I hope the same for you my friend.

Well.... at least you still have a job buddy. Not having one hurts the bank account. I have a guy from my credit card company calling 8 times a day. Thank GOD for caller ID! I have no money to give them
