    And here we are almost a year later and the site is almost 100% devoid of the same old tired schitt. A refreshing breath of air I must say.

    Fyred ......

    I'll be back up in Wisconsin in late October to deliver another class, except this time it will be a Monday-Tuesday class in Green Bay.

    I'll likely be flying into Milwaukee on Saturday so maybe we can get together that weekend, though I realize it's on the other side of the state.

    I was really hoping the Packers would be playing at home that Sunday so I could have caught a game in Lambeau. That would have been very cool. Ironically they are playing the Saints that weekend so guess I'll just have to pop into a local pub with my Saints shirt on to catch the game.

    I actually ran into Gunny V when I was at the NFA a couple of weeks ago.

    Who knows who I may run into at FDIC.

    Let me know dates, Milwaukee isn't a big deal for me to drive. After all I did it for 22 years. Maybe this time I can drag Chenzo along!

    The class is Oct. 27 & 28 in Green Bay.

    I plan on flying in on Saturday, the 26th.

    We'll come up with a plan.

    Keep me posted. I'll make it work.
