Happy Friday Everyone!<p><B>Rants:</B><br>My lower back issues (getting better) are still not resolved - it's more annoying than crippling this week, but ugh...what a pain.<br>Trying to convince husband to take vacation in September to our beloved St. John...even found $258 airfare (absurdly cheap). He is voting for staycation and saving money. I know staycation for him means house projects (no rest and relaxation) for either of us. UGH. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><B>Raves:</B><br>Business is picking up...albeit slowly, still a huge relief.<br>New cat adopted 2 weeks ago is doing well, getting acclimated home. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>It's Friday!<br>R is behaving...<I>but needs a serious detail</I>. Jon? Side job?? Send me a quote for the works!<p>Have a great weekend! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><BR><BR>

Raves:<br>- Get to meet several of the forum members for breakfast tomorrow in Columbus<br>- Got to drive the R for the first time in a week as I was on vacation<br>- Vacation was amazing<br>- Only 2 more days at my current job before I start a new job at a new company on the 24th<p>Rants:<br>- Vacation was cut short by 3 days due to job change mentioned above. When you work somewhere 11 years, you owe them a good transition, so it was back to work for me today<br>- Basement progress has reached a standstill due to so many priorities competing for my time

Rants:<p>-My new condo's on-street parking keeps getting more scary. Not only do the trees rain sap (small, pinhead-sized particles) every night. The car needs to get washed almost daily; BUT a car parked down the street from me got run into overnight by a drunk driver. That car was a Saleen-model 2009 Mustang. Ouch.<p>-I think my window mechanism is broken in the R... GRRRRR<p>-the Twins (baseball) are toying with my heartstrings....<p>Raves:<p>-Last day in hellhole job before my promotion and raise go into effect!

Re: (Husker Z)

I have several friends who are runners and they've all seemed to loose toe nails at one time or another...maybe this is your go at it. Hope it gets better.
