    That's the problem I'm facing with one of my divisions too. They're going into this patch with an unhealthy backlog in the mix already.

    The others seem to have everything in hand. Sure, they'll be pushed, but they're going to cope.

    Public holidays should be referred to as "employees holidays" Self employed folk just keep on going!

    I agree with Adrian, I do not know what holidays are. Especially since I work from home.

    But maybe we should all look at the 4 hour week - I read the book by Tim Ferris I think his name is. Wishful thinking...

    We had this discussion about a year ago on another thread and I postulated the idea that we have one long weekend a month and all religions could just fit the occasion to the holiday, that way 'pmb guy' and I can go fishing once a month and the others can pray we catch something.

    I like your idea – progressive

    Let’s go fishing Wynn, but we have to live by the code. On the boat one may only open one’s first beer after first fish. On land...pick any cooler box. Crying is for sissies that can’t fish and don’t drink beer
