    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

            "We are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect.  But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence.  I am not remotely interested in just being good."  Vince Lombardi

              I'll be traveling next Sunday (to Arizona).  With 2 days off this week, I won't "come really close."  So I guess it's "Hasta la vista."  Good luck to all at Flying Monkey.
