The Business

As many of you will know, I’ve been doing research to start my own business for quite a while now. I intended to open a store selling home brew supplies but, for various reasons, I’ve pretty much put that idea on the back burner. Not forgotten, just not ready yet. At the same time I’ve been keeping my eye on the beer distributor in Washingtonville. It’s a small store but seems to do good business thanks to being in a great location.

Recently I’ve gotten very serious about it. At this point I’ve taken meetings with both the broker and a CPA to have the financials examined. I’m bound by a non-disclosure agreement so there isn’t much that I can say about the meetings except that, for the most part, I really liked what I heard. I’m actually not sure how much I can and cannot say because of the NDA so I’m going to pretty much leave it at that.

But, I think this is worth pursuing, I’m really excited about it, and I’ve got a lot more work to do!

And there we have it:

Freeze Pop 2

How do you suppose that got there? For those who might not be familiar with these things, that’s a freeze pop handle. You put cool-aid in a freezer tray and put that thing on top so you can eat it. Firecracker really, really, loves these things.

On the plus side, I feel better knowing that there was no way anyone was getting that thing out of the toilet.
