Well, there has been a lot going on. My co-worker and friend, Doug Stokes, has been asking me to watch a video that he loaned me about 2 months ago. I still haven’t had the time to sit down and watch it. Why is time in such short supply these days? I’m glad you asked.

Every weekend we have get-togethers or birthday parties. Yes, EVERY weekend. And there is no end in sight. The house hunt is a never ending rollercoaster. We have put in about 7 offers on houses to date. One of the offers materialized, but we decided that we didn’t want the house after all. It is a very time consuming and emotionally draining process. On top of all this I am trying to diet… yea right. I haven’t lost any weight in about a month. I’m really just trying not to blow up like a balloon.

And, last but certainly not least, is my job. I love working at Banks Power and
working with the most cutting edge diesel performance and diesel cold air intake products. I’m learning a lot and pushing myself to learn more. I’m also right across the hall from the one and only Gale Banks. For those of you that know Gale or have met him, you probably know that he is a super-genius that expects the best from his employees. Gale pushes all of us to work harder and to dig deep into our creative reserves to make things happen. You gotta love working for a guy like that. Well, that’s not exactly true. If you want to be told what to do and you don’t care about the quality of your work, there is always Burger King. The fact that I get to eat my lunch while sitting on the hood of the fastest diesel drag truck in the world is pretty damn cool too.


I’m working sick today here at Banks Engineering. I’m barely able to sit here in my chair, however, I’m getting so damn excited about all of the new diesel performance products and marketing projects, that I don’t want to sit at home. I’d much rather be here learning.

I might go home for lunch to get a blanket, but I’m going to stick it out today.
