    Let me know when you need another employee, I might consider moving to VA. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I think I could sell sticks. "This here is your basic pine stick, it's softer than the oak stick but is easier to sharpen to a point. It works especially well for poking small mammals and the elderly. Now if poking large animals is what you're into, then I recommend stepping up to the redwood stick. It leaves lots of splinters and gets 'em nice and pissed for a more sporting feel. Now, if you want to poke Hillary Clinton, I highly recommend getting the 10 foot length so you don't need to get too close." /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    the economy is down, but it's improving. where I work, there's about a 6 month difference between the economy, and our work load... fortunately, its in `the good direction' 6 months after economists announce a downward trend in the economy, our sales drop off. 6 months before they say the economy's coming back, our sales pick up. other signs of the economy improving come from one of our vendors... when the economy is starting to pick up, our hardware vendor begins selling more bolts to the concrete companies for laying foundations. this generaly happens a few months before we start to pick up. good news of course, is that 2 months ago, the concrete started running like cheap beer at a highschool party, bolts started selling like mad, and the utilities should start placing orders with us like they're going out of style.

    one can hope at least...
