It’s been a while…

I haven’t been so good with keeping this blog updated, mostly because I’d rather relax or be outside (without an internet connection) when I actually have free time.

Such a great summer with lots of baseball/softball (playing and watching), a 2 week excursion in Europe (8 cities in 14 days), and an (unforgettable) trip to San Diego for Labor Day. Not to mention record growth for the company in one of the toughest times I’ve experienced in my 13+ years running the business.

I have lots of ideas on how to move out of the recession that I’ll save for another post, but my number 1 would have to be to stop punishing (read: taxing) small businesses! We’re collectively generating more jobs than the large companies with the $$$ to lobby Congress. Specifically to New York State and Gov. Patterson: taxing small businesses to fund mass transit, which can’t balance a budget after a fare increase, surcharge on all NYC taxes, and other taxes, isn’t the way to stimulate a sagging economy.

Personally, I’ve had an interesting summer in my amateur baseball “career”. 6 months of therapy hasn’t healed a nagging elbow injury, and I’m sure continuing to pitch hasn’t helped either. Pitched 6 innings of one-hit ball yesterday which definitely isn’t helping me convince myself I shouldn’t be pitching. I see another MRI in my future. Fingers crossed I don’t have a torn ligament as one doctor suspected earlier in the year. I don’t know if I could survive without full use of my right arm for over a month.

Ii found this interesting: Stephen Strausburg was initially diagnosed with a strained flexor tendon, which is what my therapist thinks I have. That became a torn UCL in his elbow, which I’m hoping mine does not. Will know more October 5.
