A week without the web
No phone, no cable, no Internet...not a single luxury.

Pam, Quinn, and I are happily ensconced in the house. I'm here at corporate HQ working on a teaming presentation--we're looking to get on a team for a major bid to provide out-year support to my current customer. [If you happen to know which one it is, please don't name it here].

I wrapped my tractor around a tree. It's seriously stuck. The steering wheel is bent. prettypammie will have pictures of the first extrication attempt. We need heavier equipment. I have reluctantly agreed to their publication despite my embarassment over getting the tractor stuck, because, frankly, "Tractor Around A Tree" has a certain "Snakes on a Plane" je ne sais quois to it.

Stuck on an island, are you?

Sorry to read about the tractor, but glad you apparently weren't hurt.

"Tractor Around A Tree" sounds almost as much fun as "Pathfinder In the Creek" that we experienced a few years back.
