Howdy ho

Been a little while, sorry about that if there really is anyone out there who gives a rats ass. :-) Work, work, play, play... been busy all around.

My favorite time is beginning, that wonderful season of BASEBALL!! I'm a fanatic, I admit. I can't get enough baseball. Their showing up, and its time to get it on! I'm a happy camper.

I have learned something new in the last few weeks. Hard work CAN finally pay off. (beware, the next couple lines are self involved, and I did hurt my shoulder trying to pat myself on my back) I believe myself to be a very dedicated worker, I work hard, and I finish what I start. I do the long hours thing, I get involved, and learn all I can. Never had it pay off, always got the short end up the anus. Left a job cause my boss was taking credit for my work. Left another cause I was too good at it, and they sent me EVERYWHERE, and when I said "pay me", they said "let's talk about this again some other time". Three times. Not good enough, see ya. So finally, I have a job that I am good at, and a good boss who recognizes it. So, you're sitting there saying, "big whoop, how's that paying off?". I'll tell ya how. Can you say 50% salary bonus? :-D Yessir, you see that right, and I'll type it again. 50%. Retention bonus in 6 months for sticking thru the sale of our division. That'll pay a few bills. Yes, I make more than chicken scratch, a lot more. VERY significant money, and that means that I can finally be debt free!!!!!!!! :-) Its gonna be a good year, FINALLY.

Congrats man, 50%... that's a hellofva lot better than winning the evnding machine lottery and having two big grab bags of pretzles fall out. (Big Grab 25% more) : )

Let us know how the Baseball looks on that ginormous new flat Screen HD LCD TV looks. Can't wait to hear how great boogers look while staring at a batter in the box from the center field cam.
