Meghan Carter Blog
Everyone has to start somewhere. I am pleased to announce my oldest daughter's brand new blog! It is simply Meghan Carter.
Meghan is ending her sophmore year in college and sure knows how to make her mom and I proud. Yesterday she drove back to school after spending the weekend home to celebrate her mom's birthday. Meghan wanted to attend an important panel discussion.
If you read her first post, I think it just might raise your spirits and increase your level of hope with respect to the ever-declining moral morass we seem to find ourselves in.

Oh did I ever have a good time earlier this week. I was skiing on the eastern face of the Sierra Nevadas at Mammoth Mountain Ski Resort. We arrived Sunday, April 18, 2004 to a blustery snowstorm that dumped 15 inches of new powder by the time we woke up the following morning.
I skied well until the afternoon when going down a blue/black run - Avalanche - I severely tore the muscles in my right calf. I'll be better soon and go back and tear up that run instead of it tearing me up.
UPDATE: Fall, 2004
It has taken nearly 6 months for my calf muscles to fully heal. I guess that is what happens when you are over 50 years old! The lesson I learned is that it is really wise to get good medical advice as soon as you are injured. I didn't see a doctor while at Mammoth Mountain and that was a big mistake. There is a possibility I would have healed faster had I seen a doctor the day of the injury.

I'm in Reno, NV today with a great bunch of friends. Our Internet conference is being held at the Siena Hotel / Casino. We ate lunch at the wonderful sit-down restaurant on the same level as the casino.
The menu had a wide selection of great sandwiches that were very affordable. I had just about made up my mind what I wanted, when I saw the quick description of their Reuben.
Wow! What a sandwich. It was huge, juicy, tasty and was made with the coolest marbled bread. The dark / light rye doughs were swirled and it made a most interesting look.
I can tell you now that I doubt I will have much of an appetite for dinner as the sandwich was so filling. If you are in Reno, I suggest you stop by the Siena Hotel Casino for lunch.

Drowning in Estrogen
I have to work around three women each day. Some people think it would be a treat. But fortunately since they are older, the volume of estrogen is declining each day. This is a fun post because moments ago they were all ganging up on me.
Every now and then this happens. They have a Take No Prisoners attitude so when they decide to tackle me, they pile on. Of course my wife Kathy leads the charge and the other Kathy, my personal assistant, and Ellen who runs our sales department don't hesitate to join in the fray.
If you are subject to this abuse and harrassment, please feel free to contact me so we can share war stories.

Cost of Living in Boston
My daughter Meghan and I are in Boston. We were just on our way back from dinner at the Union Oyster House heading to our hotel.
The trip was courtesy of the MBTA on the infamous Green Line. As we were climbing the last set of steps at the Hynes/ICA stop, a man shouted out to all of us on our way home for the night. He simply said, "Anyone got a spare hundred? I'm homeless and I'm mad!"
