sounds like i'd fit right in
i'd love to be in Florida right now though... to escape this arctic cold weather in LA

I just ordered a couple of tab collar shirts from BB. I haven't worn one of those since about 1992. When I saw them on the website I had to snap a couple up. You hardly see them anywhere now.

I'm sitting in on a conference right now on pre- and post-mortem estate planning techniques.....the speaker sounds identical to Vince Vaughn and it is completely jacking my concentration because I keep waiting for him to incorporate "motorboatin' sunuvabitch" into his presentation. Scumbag brain at it's finest, lol.


Surrey, love the bourbon!

Post-mortem estate planning is sort of an oxymoron.

Ah. I would think of that as estate administration.

Anyway: is it a pretty good conference? I need to start thinking about getting some continuing education hours under my belt. I'm required to get 45 hours every three years because I'm a certified specialist. I don't want to head off to Florida, though.

I'm pretty impressed thus far. There are a ton of CA people here....I think the total conference is roughly 3000 people. Once I get back I'll be creating a presentation that I'll present to a bunch of people back in St. Louis....if you'd like I could send it to you. It won't be good for CE hours, but maybe there will be some useful information.
