Four jobs youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve had in your life: Taking our garbage cans to the street, picking up bread and milk on the way home, representing my wife in traffic court (and winning), and defending Ronald Reagan against liberals.
Four movies you could watch over and over: Just intellectual movies with messages like Pee Wee's Big Adventure, National Lampoon's Vacation, Smokey and the Bandit, and especially these Jane Fonda films.
Four places youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve lived: As "lived" can have more than one meaning...a golf course along the ocean, going parking as a teenager, 1971 road trip to New Orleans, and as an electrician in Colonial America in my former life.
Four places youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve been on vacation: I take vacations one hour at a time at work.
Four places youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢d rather be: The future, the White House, further from Neverland Ranch, and age eighteen again with what I know now.
I hope this cleared up any questions and gave you more insight into how I think. Satisfied, G.M.?

RE: Christmas PARTY ON DEC. 23RD
DATE: DEC. 1ST
I'm happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party will take place on December 23, starting at noon in the banquet room at Luigi's Open Pit Barbecue. No-host bar, but plenty of eggnog! We'll have a small band playing traditional carols...feel free to sing along. And don't be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed as Santa Claus! A Christmas tree will be lit at 1:00 P.M. Exchange of gifts among employees can be done at that time, however, no gift should be over $10.00 to make the giving of gifts easy for everyone's pockets. This gathering is only for employees! A special announcement will be made by our CEO at that time!
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

French Ban Fireworks at Euro Disney - (AP), Paris, March 5, 2003
The French Government announced today that it is imposing a ban on the use of fireworks at Euro Disney. The decision comes the day after a nightly fireworks display at the park, located just 30 miles outside of Paris, caused the soldiers at a nearby French Army garrison to surrender to a group of Czech tourists.
