    Default Breaking in the new school...

    I'm heading out to Mr. Conatser's place tomorrow (Nov. 3, 2006) to do some training. There are supposed to be a few guys coming out to participate as well. I'm gunna take the good 'ol digital camera and snap a few pictures while I'm there. So, with any luck... I'll hang a couple up over here when I get back.

    Well... My daughter and I had a great time visiting I.K.K.O. Headquarters! Mr. Conatser and his family were great. They started spoiling us right after we walked in the door.

    I was absolutely astounded by the amount of work that's taken place there. The studio, back yard, pool, and patio are all nearly finished. It won't be long until the construction crew starts working on the main house.

    This visit to Scottsdale was the first visit out of many we have planned in the months and years to come. I'm really happy for Mr. Conatser and his wife Mary, and the dream they're building together. I can't wait to see the rest of their efforts fall into place.

    I have photo's from our visit, but don't seem to have the capability of uploading them to the site anymore. I'll call Mr. C in a little while. Maybe he can help me get them put up?

    Thank you Mr. Conatser, Mary, Steven, and Nichole for having us as your guests. I'm looking forward to seeing you again in a few weeks. You're the greatest!

    Oh... one last thing! I'd like to thank Dr. John Hippen for coming out on Saturday to share some training time with me. It was great getting to know you, and I hope to see you again.
