In the Age of the Classic Businessman

Hope you all are well.  As for myself, I've come down with a bad cold, so I slept most of yesterday and today I'm recovering.  Which gave me time to rifle through some of my Uncle Jim's photos and scan a few.  Here is a business picnic with my grandfather in attendance.  There's no information on the photo and nothing to date it, but I would assume based on his age that this is from the late 1950s or early 1960s.  Formal attire for the park!  My, what a different age!  My grandfather, Jim Corley, Sr., is standing sixth from the left.


I'm trying to get enough rest to be able to lead a Boy Scout outing this weekend.  I'll try and pre-post the Person-of-Mystery for Saturday before I depart, but I'm unsure if I'll have mobile reception in the hills, so don't expect replies to your guesses until Sunday.

No, Grandpa really was good looking well into old age. He was a colorful character though. Sometime, I'll have to post his story.

One very popular method that Kentucky consumers use to pay off debt is called the snowball strategy, where they start with the smallest debts and pay them off. credit card debt

I definitely agree with the comment on how most start up capitol derives from the housing market. When housing suffers and your house goes down in value, that can really limit a person from obtaining the start up capitol needed. buy perfect money e-voucher with credit card

Though this is a business picnic, i think workplace rules still apply. When you attend such event, you should still consider your strategy and be on your best behavior since you are representing your company. Jason, http://www.emethod.ca/kelowna-seo-services/

This is very interesting, I like to see businesses from past times. I hope that in 40 years time people look back on my business like this. At the moment my business is doing very well, thanks to PWD who helped my design my website.
