      Go go go. Can I borrow a cup of your tenacity. Well I am getting a bit faster on the wheel. But I get too many distractions. And bouts of apathy.

      Hmm I just arranged a u haul truck for one of my clients last week ... recall that a 20 ft truck holds like 14 tons. Rental was only $39/day and 69 cents a mile ... you would probably pay for it in trips save?

      (we needed a little more cubic feet so for like $30 rented a cargo trailer that we pulled with the truck)
