I thought it funny in the news today. Obama states it's 'shameful' all the bonus' earned on Wall Street last year. Earned by individuals like you and me, with families, working long, hard hours and weekends. Doing what they were being hired to do and compensated accordingly.

But apparently it's not shameful for the actors in Hollywood to get paid tens of millions of dollars for thier movies. Not shameful for producers and directors and studio execs to get hundreds of millions each year for producing 'movies'.

Perhaps it's because of which group is donating to his campaign, which is not, and demonizing the free marketplace.

I don't know, you tell me.

Well, yesterday was our 22nd wedding anniversary.

Vic got roses, we took the whole family out to dinner and had a real good time.

Thanks to everyone for their condolences, I'm sorry, I mean congratulations for reaching another milestone in our marriage. :)

And what would a long over due post be without a Gracie story.

Gracie runs to Vic with a very scared, concerned look on her face.

She yells "Mommy, Mommy, somethings wrong with my butt, please look at it!!!!" Then she turns around and bends over.

Vic asks "What is it, did you fall, does it burn?"

To which 5 yr old Gracie responds: "Noooo,,,,it's got a crack in it!!" And takes off running and laughing.

And how's your weekend going?

The Day After

Ok, so we have a new president. I hope he is up to the task and will pray that he is 1/2 the man so many millions think he is.

As for the concept that this has changed America, a new day has dawned, we put demons behind us because we elected a black man to the presidency? I think it is an inspiration to young people of any race or color to know once and for all they can do anything. But other than that I say nothings really changed.

I will say this country has truly changed, has truly become color blind, is truly beyond the race baiting and issues when a black man is elected president and no one ever mentions the fact that he (or she) is black. I personally don't care if the person is green, I just want the right person for the job.

So here's to the new president. May he honor the constitution, defend our land and do what's right for this country and her people.

PingFit BETA

Joe Reger and I have a new site up we're testing right now.

I know many of you have made New Years Resolutions to lose weight and get fit, well PingFit can help. It provides you with simple exercises you can do all day long. At work or at home.

You choose the exercise list you want and you get 'pinged' every 20 minutes (or 30, you can choose) to do the exercise.

It's in the infancy stage and we're looking for people to try it out and give us feedback. Please give it a shot and be sure to use the Feedback button to let us know what you think.

We'll be adding exercises and lists as quickly as possible to make it more worthwhile for everyone.

One other benefit. For now IT'S FREE!!!! That's right, for the duration of the BETA access to PingFit will be free. And if you help us out by using the site and providing a lot of feedback, when the site does become a pay to use site, you could get a free membership.

So come on. Give us a hand. Help the world get PingFitted.

- Joe
