    Hey gang.

    How's it going this weekend?

    Had the nephew over last night, finally.

    I think that my little "smack-down" a while back might have knocked some sense into him. He's laid off the drink (at least he's not getting hammered) and he's treating her a lot better (hasn't hit her or ran around on her)

    Spent a little time talking with him and I think that he's slowly growing up. Of course, he's only 21 so I can expect a bit of youthful exuberance in him.

    Well if he doesn't tow the line after about 6 months the way he has been with you lately.....there's always 12 step programs.......sobered and smartened up millions....

    'Morning Bret and everyone. JP, I'm glad to hear about the kid. We're all pulling for him turning things around. I know of one person who went from a full-blown quart of shine daily drinker to social drinker, going on close to a decade.. Involved a major medical scare and "a few" words from his MD wife, though As Doug said, if social doesn't work he can always do the 12 steps. Worked for a heck of a lot more people.

    This might not be your "cup of tea," but it might be just the thing for your nephew...

    Moonrunner......please don't rub it in to the yanks about their junior's Hockey team loss to the little country of Canada .... that of course kicks their a$$es every time we play the mighty USA....they're real touchy about being losers....!!! I've suggested we get the Canadian girls team to play their men's team to make it a bit more fair to them......but they woosed out on that too.......
    Besides......they are all on their way over the fiscal cliff.......

    I guess I must be the exception. We couldn't have pro hockey in the US if it wasn't for players from Canada. We could build a couple of teams from our northern midwest, and maybe the northeast. But we could never put the number of teams on the ice that play at the current levels it we didn't have a good bunch of guys from north of the border.

    Hard to imagine someone not being able to recognize their importance.

    I'm moving to Canada so I can be awesome at hockey, too.

    Go to Ft. McMurray.......they are hiring reefer techs/mechanical foremen for $20-22,000 PER MONTH!!!!! And you get to live rent/food/o/h free.
    We will be 20,000 - 100,000 skilled tradesmen short in the next decade so they are advertising in California for workers.....that would be of course instead of training/hiring from within.....moron politicians....
