Perhaps my proudest moment was the $2K in LT for knowing the name of the railroad early in the DJ round. When I was a lad my father ...

Re: Our Current Situation

I work for a certain retirement pensions company known for an odd-shaped building. Pretty much scrambling over the past week, but finally got a laptop with the software tools to work from home. Just in time, as the mayor just put Denver on shutdown starting tomorrow evening.
