Q4 blues

Hi all,

I started a blog post this past weekend about how corporate America sucks and how I was embroiled in the last minute push to sell anything and everthing I could to make our numbers look better for the month/quarter/year. And then my big, fat hands leaned on some key and deleted three-quarters of what was written. Auto-save saved the "revised" post before I noticed and, when I did, got angry and said "F' it!". At some point I will learn (maybe next year) that I should write in Word and import the final file into Blogger.

On a positive note, I'm happy about our pending AMC holiday bash coming up on the 19th. We have a large group and will be taking over a local restaurant for some seasonal and communal good cheer.

On top of that, soon I reach a major milestone in life and that alone is cause for celebration. Too soon to start a "bucket" list but I am contemplating making strides towards the things in life I've always wanted to do, like race. I'm making some inquiries with some folks in the know and will keep you posted.

Finally, if you look in the upper left hand corner of this blog you'll see some links to some new friends' blogs. Of course, Jerry & Marie's adventure is over but if you didn't get to enjoy this in 2007, find time to wander through this and review the adventures they had. Good stuff.

For now, it's head down until the end of the month. Sell, sell, sell! Before you know it, it will be a new year, a new administration and time for the motorcycle shows. Time to get on with our lives.

A low, slow wave,

Joe Rocket

Mr. Joe: Just stopping by for a visit after seeing you listed on Ms. Pats's blog. Cool blog!

Reading your frustration about deleting stuff by accident. I use Microsoft’s Live Writer to do my blog. It is free from MS and works really great. Much easier to use then trying to use Bloggers HTML version. Not to mention you can do a ton more things with it. Give it a look.
