Raves:<br>Another roadtrip in the R. Drove to Spokane, along the Flathead River at dawn, the sun coming over the Mission Mountains, Lake Coeur d'Alene, lots of BMW's, a few Volvos but no R's. <br>Passed 51K on the odometer.<br>Then at Liberty Lake another stunningly beautiful lady. My favorite pitstop.<br>A rare little falcon was dropped off at the clinic the other night, a black merlin, it was found injured on the road. It probably hit a car and seems to be on the road to recovery. <p>Raves:<br>Why focus on the negative.<br>

Re: TGIF! RRRants & RRRaves for Friday August 21, 2009 (1800girl)

hi everyone <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p><b>Rants</b><br> no raise this year again and bonus is smaller then last year <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <br> lower back still hurts, thus no progress on remo projects. eating Advil like candy<br> both S70 need brake job. <p><b>Raves</b><br>well, when lot of friends are out of work, having work is already looks like a "bonus" (fk the raise).<br>R is clean and currently getting hood/bumper/mirrors XPEL<br>bonus goes toward BD gift and CFO approved spending it on R. Just have to pick <b>one</b> item in proposed mod list (crap, it's kind of rant too).<p>Have a good weekend everyone.<br><BR><BR>

Rant:<br>Senior person in my office who has made it clear that we don't see eye-to-eye looks like Boris Karloff shtooped a leprechaun. This after he took a bottle of Caymus off me as a "bribe" I paid to get him on a business trip. I want to take him to the proverbial wood shed and teach him some manners. <p>Raves:<br>A weekend with my kids and some friends will keep me sane (for now).<br> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
