I'm off to Florida for the rest of the week to shoot some automotive training videos. Even though I've done several other videos for different companies, this time... I'm writing the scripts as well as being in front of the camera. If all goes well they have 18 more to do. Wish me luck. I'm going to need it.

This weekend my youngest...and yes... the last one still in the house is graduating high school. It's a big day for him as well as the wife and I. In a few months he's off to the University of Denver to study computer science. First time to be an empty nester... I think I'm going to like it. LOL Congratulations are in order for my son Mitchell! ! (super smart kid btw)

I've been contracted by AVI (Automotive Video Inc,) To do a series of videos, which will involve several trips to Florida. The last couple of weeks I've been writing the scripts and doing the editing. So, there maybe a few rerun articles for awhile. This is has been keeping me busy away from my usual writing schedule.

    Gonoz, no worry...your reruns are still classics. Good luck on the videos.

Just an introduction. Mechanic turned owner, started my shop in May 2007. Rural area, two full time techs and I write service. Not looking for anything in particular just like to read and learn and hopefully be able to help someone else along the way.

Snowed AGAIN yesterday and today. Did not shovel, did not plow the lot for the customer, just watched the snow come down. Stick a fork in me....I am done.

    I know how you feel. We had another 9 inches. But what really sucks is , if you drive 15 miles south, there was only rain!

    Like when the last snow hit here. We were in a blinding blizzard and my daughter 5 hours aways was sitting on her porch in 73 degree weather.

    I hope this is the last of the snow. It has really took a toll on my business. Numbers were really down for Jan & Feb. And March is starting out slow also.

Playing catch up with articles and assignments. Running a bit late getting the next one out. Starting to have to many pans in the fire. Kind of a good problem to have.
