great, I'll try and drop in tomorrow and get the details ! And yes, all the flower photos are mine from my gardens - sometimes I think the primary purpose of my PC is simply to house all my garden photos :-)

I'm REAL interested in this boot camp - should I stop into the location to find out more or call ?

Just want to say to anyone visiting Master Richard's page that Greg has a GREAT program! He doesn't teach martial arts as a sport, but as a discipline that permeates throughout a child's daily life. The program rewards things like good grades and helping out at home as well as regular attendance to classes. Program is also great for adults looking for focus and exercise. Master Richards knows his stuff--and his form is not too bad either.

Gregory, you and I may be seeing more of eachother. I have 3 year old son who kicks just about anything now, so I'd like to harness that energy for good instead of evil. Do you teach kids that young?

The "Knockout Game" it is a growing trend in our area.

I have heard about this and after the stabbing yesterday by Subway, I'm sure it is bound to happen here.

Just be alert when walking on main street or any where else.

Impact of Hudson Baylor

Today I had a rep from Royal carting come in to renew my dumpster agreement which I must have by law in Beacon. In conversation he said a few things I did not know. 1) Trash from beacon does not go to a landfill, it is incenderated. 2) Beacon has seen a 30% increase in recyclables due to the new bins. The reason for the new bins is that all recycle now goes to Hudson Baylor, which does not require seperated recycle. Which the old county plant does.
