Notice to Employees

Notice to All Employees
When President Obama is officially elected into office, our company will instill a few new policies which are in keeping with his new, inspiring issues of change and fairness:
1. All salespeople will be pooling their sales and bonuses into a common pool that will be divided equally between all of you. This will serve to give those of you who are underachieving a 'fair shake.'
2. All low level workers will be pooling their wages, including overtime, into a common pool, dividing it equally amongst yourselves.This will help those who are 'too busy for overtime' to reap the rewards from those who have more spare time and can work extra hours.
3. All top management will now be referred to as 'the government.'We will not participate in this 'pooling' experience because the law doesn't apply to us.
4. The 'government' will give eloquent speeches to all employees every week, encouraging it's workers to continue to work hard 'for the good of all.'
5. The employees will be thrilled with these new policies because it's 'good to spread the wealth.' Those of you who have under achieved will finally get an opportunity; those of you who have worked hard and had success will feel more 'patriotic.'
6. The last few people who were hired should clean out their desks. Don't feel bad, though, because President Obama will give you free healthcare, free handouts, free oil for heating your home, free food stamps, and he'll let you stay in your home for as long as you want even if you can't pay your mortgage. If you appeal directly to our democratic congress, you might even get a free flat screen TV and a coupon for free haircuts (shouldn't all Americans be entitled to nice looking hair?) !!!
If for any reason you are not happy with the new policies, you may want to rethink your vote on November 4th.

Robert & Jessica and Fam & my Mom and Connie came over. Connie was in town for a week staying with her daughter in Nampa.

San Diego Trip

Monday the 22nd we made a trip to San Diego for Kent's National Association of Home Builders Meetings. We had a great view from our room looking down at the pool (darn, I forgot my binoculars) and out accross the bay to Coronodo Island. Wendy went on a tour while I was in meetings Tuesday. She had a good pic with the City Skyline behind her. You can see our Hotel just over her right shoulder.
We have made some good friends with other builders from all over the country and had a chance to go out to dinner with a few of them
We have some friends that live in San Diego, John & Paula-Jo Cahoon. We spent the day with them at an aquarium and driving along the beach. We stopped at a small resturant along the beach to have lunch.
On Thursday we went out to Coronado Beach to get a little sun and play in the ocean. It was cold but no colder than the lakes we swim in around here. Wendy & I were wading out in the water and Wendy got stung on her foot. We figure that it must have been a Stingray because we saw one in the water a little latter. It hurt for about an hour.
