Gonna Be Rockin' In The Sunny D.R.!

Pretty excited right now. We just booked a trip leaving on January 22nd. My wife and I have previously been to Cuba and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.

We have a place for the kid and the dog, and we will be out of Canada's chill before 0800 on the 22nd.

Check it out. Feel free to join me if you like.

Holy 1950's Mentality Batman!!

I was just surfing over here and I see what I find to be an unusual situation with the IBOIA.

There's various committees, starting with:

The Board Of Directors (Look at that...a gaggle of Gods)

The Executive Committee (Billy Florence looks a tad retarded there)

Awards and Recognition Committee (Greg Duncan seems to puff out for every picture)

Business Operations Committee (Thanks for spreading your legs for the fans Crawford, real nice)

The Multicultural International Committee (Nice blue suit and brown shoes Dornan)

(Snort) Legal and Ethics Committee ( I see Jody Victor knows enough to keep his hand over his pocket around the other diamonds)

Hearing and Disputes Committee (See, the two in the front keep their hands over their pockets around other diamonds!)

Marketing Advisory Committee ( I won't pick on the ladies..they're probably just doing what their husbands told them to do)

Do any of you notice something completely obvious and yet out of place with the 21st Century?

Why is it that there seems to be no co-ed committees? Don't they trust one another with their wives?

I'll bet not too many companies don't have a mix of males and females on their various committees. It's a pretty good example of how the old boy's club isn't dead, even when you hit the big time.

You'd think that if a female had a dispute going through the committee, she'd appreciate a female on the board hearing her side of the story.

You'd think the males would have something to offer in the Marketing Advisory Committee. After all, I'm sure some men consume Amway Products, no?

My childish immature comments aside, does anyone else think this is weird? I don't think too many businesses run that way anymore.

Maybe there is such a place called Stepford after all.

Amen Brother!!!!

OK, Due to an incredibly prolific post, the gentleman formerly known as Dingbat has returned to regular status.

I encourage you all to read that post. Here is the link - click here

If someone wishes you a Happy Quanza or whatever, don't be offended, just say thanks, and return the good wishes.

In Winnipeg, MB, last year a Christmas Tree at the Forks was referred to as a "Holiday Tree"

This year, Christmas is back, and it's a Christmas Tree again, thanks to the overwhelming majority of people ( who presumably celebrate Christmas) getting rightfully P O'd at the attempt to dilute what Christmas is.

No need to feel guilty about celebrating Christmas, it's what many people do.

God forbid you tell someone "Merry Christmas" or attend a "Christmas Pageant" at your kid's school, or even sing "Christmas Carols"

It's as absurd as calling a minora a candleabra. It's a fricking minora.

This is insane

I've been absent as of late...'tis the season.

I'll update you all soon, just in case somebody cares.

See you soon.
