    Cool I'm back!

    After being on vacation for a week on the lovely coast of Maine (sun, sand and surf... yeehaw! ), I am back! Did I miss anything good?

    Welcome back from your well deserved vacation Mr. President! I do hope you enjoyed several frosty pints while you were away. We missed you

    Did you miss anything... hehe...OH YEAH! I think it's all good now though.

    I was thinking that I might try to put together a website specifically for the IACOJ explorer's. Didn't want to do it without talking to you about it first though. Maybe it could be linked to the main IACOJ site, and it would of course be open to all IACOJ members. If you don't see a problem with it, I would appreciate any suggestions you or the rest of the membership might have.

    President Gonzo
    Welcome back from your vacation sir. We missed you. I will have to come up with a dinner for you to welcome you back. The kitchen is open all the time. Any requests?

    Talking

    I thought you were being awful quiet lately! Welcome back sir...were you hanging out in Kennebunkport, with the other President's family?

    SuperChef....perhaps some fresh, Maine Lobster for the Prez?

    Cap, You missed a whole lotta nothing...It sure is nice when you are far from home not worrying about work, and all of lifes other little hassles. We work the best job in the world, but it sure is nice to get away from it once in awhile. Welcome back.

    el Presidente- I hope your vacation was relaxing and enjoyable. Oh by the way I saw our fellow crusty Capt. Mike from NBFD on the news last week after a good job down there.
