You know, it just feels like this is going to be a snowy winter compared to last year which was about zilch for us.  I've already started getting the snow blower ready...

I hope that you're right Jim. I pulled the snowmobiles out of the garage last weekend and they're both ready to roll.   :)

I don't usually get that attitude until just after Thanksgiving..  Bit early for that just yet....but I do appreciate the sentiment.

I just found an old can of Huberds shoe grease (last used around 1980 on a pair of corks).  Gonna break in a new pair of Aerostitch Combat Lights tomorrow and the grease just works miracles.  Paid $2.30 at a local Ernst store, smells just as good today as it did back then :)

Wedge.  Buddy rode down to Socal a few weeks ago, rained on him until he was clear of Orygun (left from Tacoma WA), he was wearing his 'Stitch, Shoei, Hippo Hands on the bars, and the only thing that stayed dry were his boots.  Yep, I'm sold.  Small enough to fit under the pants legs, heavy leather, easy on and off, and they don't make you look like ricky racer.

Hiring people on CL is a crap shoot. The first one (after looking at several replies from totally unqualified people) worked the first day, said he liked the job and never came back. Lent him a cell phone which I will never see again. The second one (after many replies as above) came in for an interview, said great, see you in the AM. Never showed up. His wife answered the phone and had no idea where he went at 6 AM. Third one is supposed to show up at 9 AM tomorrow. We'll see.....

It works both ways; I spoke with a gentleman with whom I thought I could do business that would be beneficial to both of us. He set a date to call me back Sat. so we could work on the NDA's and so forth- according to my sundial, Saturday is almost over and in 40 minutes it will be Wednesday. People are same all over; no dignity, no pride, not even close to being forthright. But nevertheless, I will not stoop to their level and continue to conduct business as fairly and evenhandedly as I know how to do.
