    What do you do for living?

    I don't know how you do it. I have not been in too many since we got out of trucking, however there were a few that were not doing well with other economic interests other than travelers depending on where they are located.

If it does not work out, half and half and debts if any are all settled by the courthouse. So that means if one of you owes 30,000 in credit card bills and quits paying. Guess what...

    I watched Lincoln in the original in blue ray DVD earlier. Its kind of... hard going with the old fashioned speaking from 150 years ago, however the film is particularly good. I suppose under the current administration it might eventually be censored or banned as contraband or fake movie. =)...
