Anyone else's income suck in July??PaulCL

Mine does.

Hitting that 'refresh' button constantly to get the TDF updates pretty much kills my mornings. Since I don't get a salary, the less I work, the less I earn. Maybe I should log off of the internet, go cold turkey....nah...screw the mortgage payment, give me tour updates!!!
My income always sucks :-) nmKristin

LOL, I'm doing the same thing. July is the worst month for my business as well. Since it sucks so bad, let's meet in France next year.
Deal !!PaulCL

July and August are the worst months for investment advisors (we used to be called stockbrokers). Let's go!

Dave, if the market wasn't so lousy and my income off so much in the last two years, I really would go. Of course, my wife would want to come too. That's OK. She won't ride, but she'll work up a good sweat shopping.

My wife and I are seriously thinking of returning to France next Spring (we went in the spring of '01). This time to the Provance (sp?) area. If we go again, I'm bringing my bike. Ask your wife and join us. Paul
Perfect, my wife doen't ride either but she sure can shop.Dave Hickey

We've wanted to go to France and since she works for American Airlines, we really have no excuse. I'll she if she interested in a spring trip. My dream vacation is to ride in France.
Can I come too?moneyman

I opened an independent office in March, 2000. I got into the business in Spetember, 1987. My timing is impeccable.

Talk about lousy timing! Whoa. I got into the business in May of 1987, switched firms in Sept of '99. Just about moved my book before the big slide. When's it ever gonna stop???

OK guys...grab your bikes, talk to your wives, get babysitters for the kids, Dave..arrange cheap airfare for us and we're gone!!
Yes, you can come tooTed

There is a guy named Martin Ganzel who must obviously have a "poor" income. I was willing to buy some cycling shoes from him with a money order, and he backed out the last minute because he would rather get "paid" through pay-pal immediately, even though he agreed that a money order from me was o.k. Everyone stay clear of this "boy" if he is selling something or trying to buy something from you. His member name is : snakes2457@yahoo.com. He is just like his name implies....a real SNAKE!

those lugs on the C-40. Show her pictures of them in action and ones with out riders on them. Tell her this the frame of a lifetime. A trip is over in no time, a C-40 lives on forever!
