    Smokin Joe!! Miss this wild man. He gets it done from jumping out of planes to living in the arctic, Joe knows CFHSV helps him keep on living a full adventurous lifestyle. Thanks for all you do Joe.

    On a complete other note and the opposite of Joe. I just read a good article on handling toxic people, I thought I would share in the event any of you deal with this. Now please do not get on to me about the last one and caffeine. http://www.forbes.com/sites/travisbradberry/2014/10/21/how-successful-people-handle-toxic-people/#464844025813
