No one has control over your choices but you! I know you will succeed in anything you set your sights on.

That is all (well except nice benching too)!

I hope you get this sorted Jim.

Bench looked good. Loved the Starsky and Hutch car! Rock on Jimbo.
Aw, you guys sure have a knack for lifting me up, which is why I share pretty much everything with all of you. Thanks so much.

Interesting idea to write a book - you really think my life is that interesting? I am thinking that that is something Lisa would also love to help with and be involved in. She is such a fantastic writer and it would be an honour to work with her on it. Eevn Steve i am sure would be able to help with editing!!

This was never supposed to be about money. I reckon as a businessman, he wants to see a rate of return on his investment. I can't swing the course financially on my own, so it's over on that front.

However, I am going to put alot of thought into a few things in the next few weeks. His offer also is valid for Mrs Squatter as well, so she is also thinking of a few things.

What hurt the most is that he thinks of the lifting and everything associated with it as just an entertainment thing and that I should be spending more time on my potential new career. Well, I did that already, and he shot it down.

I was able to dispense of my anger on the Monolift today. I am good as new!! Squats are so damn therapeutic!
