That just sounds painful, doesn't it? Yikes! However, as the title suggests, I am personally in backwardation today as I feel the best way to summarize our current position is to give you my conclusion first and then work backwards from there.
Just a quick note this morning as I will be leaving soon. Mama and Papa Ferg were visiting over the weekend and it falls to The Turd to drive them home today. I'll be checking things and checking in via iphone as we go through the day. Let's just hope that things don't get too crazy.

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of a legend. Today, after a long battle with splinters, my sidekick, the ruler, gave up the ghost.
