I've been talked into a vacation. A canoe trip miles from the nearest cell tower in the Adirondacks.
{point?}
I guess everyone should take a break, one way or another, it's just hard to arrange around all the crisis managment....

A nice vacation works wonders!

Just don't let on to anyone what your occupation is, or you know what will happen don't you?

Enjoy your vacation, or as people over here might say, "Happy hols!"

Vacation, what's that?
I think it's where the Pope lives but I could be wrong.

Bill, I'm in the Smokies. Pretty nice place in itself. Going to see some of my wives relatives on the way and then onward to the coast.

have a great vacation....
Check the thread about T&M b4 u leave.

I sneak out "early" on Fridays & head to the shore. (Boating,swimming, relaxing, etc.)

But, as we probably all know, the pager, cell phone and laptop are a constant companion.

Then, of course around 4:30/5:00 on Friday the "emergency" calls start..... (another story)

Everybody should find some time to "take off"; life is short...money isn't everything, (Although it helps a he.. of a lot)
