What a wonderful opportunity! I like to think I'm witty, and I'm jaded for sure. Now if we can just get re-employed back in HR...

Gotta love Michigan. We're #1! (In unemployment. In the nation.)

I wish you the best in getting some contributors. Can't wait for the big blog rollout!

I am not a benefits guy, but, instead of one night at Denny's you should trade it for 2 mornings at The Waffle House. Benefits and Wellness people have to be big drinkers...I think it is a rule.


Lisa - Thanks for the good wishes...

Dan - nice tweak to my benefit thing. Does the Waffle House have a loyalty program?

Here's a true waffle house story. The best man in my wedding was a current wrestler in the WWE named "Kane". We went to college together, and one night 5 or 6 years ago, I met him at a Birmingham Waffle House before he drove to the next town. We left, and before getting in the cars, I had another wrestler take a photo of Glen (Kane) and I together. I told the guy, named Dee Lo Brown (I think he's still in the show), to take another one (no please...) and I thought he was going to put a choke hold on me as the short order cook looked out the window (at midnight or 1am..)

Just another romantic Waffle House story...

The fact that you know Kane is amazing!!!!
