BR E-News for 12/19/10

Aloha to all of you friends of BAMBOO RIDGE, and a very happy Sunday to you. I hope your holiday festivities go well.

Ho ho ho MAN! I'm taking a swift break from flood control here, and ho ho hoping that I don't get the shock of my life while I'm working on this message. Fortunately, Bamboo Buckaroo brought me a wet-vac a few birthdays ago, so I seem to be holding back the rising tide. If you have one more gift to buy, I highly recommend a wet-vac. Maybe won't get used all the time, but when you need it, brother does it come in handy.

To the news!
