I could usually get a fire going in less than a minute using fire by friction so that's cool. I worked at the rifle and archery ranges at the summer camp for 4 years so I should be able to handle that. I did the mile swim every year but I'm not that fast. I've rappelled before but since I'm scared of heights it's not my favorite thing in the world. Chopping wood? I've done plenty of that. The high ropes though, there's no way!!

So if they would let me pick and choose what to do, sure I'd do it!!!!!

I always used a backstroke. To me it wasn't as tiring. The hard part was staying on course though because you couldn't see the buoys behind you.

That's a good idea! That's what I end up doing after a few tiring laps, it's more relaxing.

Please join us in the Large Conference Room for some pizza, wings and soda to celebrate the Ravens in Super Bowl 47! This is a company-sponsored event, just bring yourself and your Ravens pride!



Go Ravens!


I can honestly say, that I was totally blown away with the aspect of the company treating us??? Boy, that doesn't happen very often more like not at all....But, who's complaining! I'll take It any day.... So, It's purple Friday here today and I guess I can say; GO Ravens!!!!
I am glad they are letting you have a little fun.

Thanks, Xmas!! We did pretty good. Adrian bought us some hand warmers to use when walking Har, so they really help.

How are you? How was your day? ⛄
