3. Shane @DomainShane.com wrote the following article, “I Think Bido Has Turned the Corner“. Thanks Shane for the kind words. In our mind, we have not even started yet.

When the officer handed me the ticket he also handed me a coupon for a traffic school, “Five Dollars Off!”. Now I just wonder, how much do they get from that school to pass that coupon to you? Your tax money @Work. Unbelievable.
Have a great day!
