Link Dump: 5.15.11

I’ll be away from the wheel for few days, as you read in my last post. Washington, D.C. should be educational, if not fun. Truth be told, I don’t really like traveling. It’s a control freak thing. I can’t fly the plane, therefore I’m not sure if everything will go well. But, it’s JetBlue, there’s TV, and a Jamba Juice at JFK, so it’s all good.

Big news to share…we have our own URL!! Make sure to check us out at Pretty exciting stuff.
