Carlisle, PA— Actually, I’m a little closer to Harrisburg… but whatever. GREAT TO BE BACK– Yes, it took a while, but we’re back. I simply got fed up with the antics at the webhost I was using.  Far too much downtime, usually caused by them.  And always without notice. For a while there, I didn’t […]

Carlisle, PA–After three highly unusual weeks of running to the west it appears as though I will be spending the remainder of this year running east.  That’s a bit more normal for this truck line.  Frankly, we’re experiencing a bit of a pre Christmas slowdown. I’m not worried.  I’ve seen this before.  From here, I […]

Batavia, NY– I’m picking up a load for Carlisle, PA. I’ll be back in NY state by morning. Whatever it is, it’s not grass roots: Perhaps it’s time we examine the push behind “Occupy Wall Street”.

Hey, Billy… As always your comments on Krugman are spot on, and all the more so for their cut to the chase-briefness. Paul Krugman is a stark moron, Nobel Prize […]
