<B>Rants:</B><br>Amazingly, none to really speak of although, can I get an "amen" to Trish's comment about stupid people? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p><B>Raves:</B><br>No real rants -- everything is too small to get overworked about (not that they don't get the best of me at times) and there will always be niggling little gnats to deal with in life.<br>Awesome, healthy family.<br>Have a job.<br>Getting back in shape again.<br>Loving the powerwasher. It's like a drug. Yeah, I know...I need a life.<p><B>Wearing:</B><br>Typical boring "dress casual Friday" attire.
