Why I gotta pay? You sold the biz. and are running around retired living the worry-free good life in a luxury motor coach with probably millions in the bank. I'm still working for a livin.

O.K., you buy the margaritas and I'll buy the food and then stick Mitch with the check.

Fine. IF I make it down to San Diego for the show this year, I'll buy up to 25 Margaritas for the LS group. But keep in mind last year I was down there only because Hydro-Rain (Blu-Lock) picked up the tab for the whole trip. I don't usually go to the IA show. But I may again this year. We'll see.

Also got the Caribbean Cruise with RB that I am for-sure going to. And a trip with the kids to Disneyland at the end of this season. So we'll see if I can still squeeze in one more trip. One of my managers is from San Diego so I was considering taking him and one of my other managers down there to the IA show for 3 days or so. Would be a nice reward for their hard work.... we'll see....

Of course we're razzing 80's music fans - there is always something special about the first music you connect to - in a very good play entitled The Real Thing, the final scene shows the playwright husband at home, listening to some Bach organ music, and his ex-wife drops in, and pays him a compliment for expanding his musical interests. She leaves, and the playwright turns off the Bach, and thinks aloud that there is sometimes no substitute for "the real thing" and plays the following

NO! I get enough cold weather as it is. Last thing I want is cold or snow. I want to go somewhere WARM!

You people and your love for cold weather and those ugly f*ing boots that girls wear. What are they called again? Fuggs? Well, they're Fuggin Ugly, that's for sure. No...no...no.... I prefer warm weather and bikinis, thank you very much!

so I'm looking to find the name of the exact Bach piece that Procol Harum borrowed from, and I learn that Whiter Shade of Pale is one of about two dozen singles ever to have sold ten million copies worldwide. On that short list is the following

An Ayn Rand hijack to break boots trip down nostalgia lane.

I stand here on the summit of the mountain. I lift my head and I spread my arms. This, my body and spirit, this is the end of the quest. I wished to know the meaning of things. I am the meaning. I wished to find a warrant for being. I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction.
