As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly” — Proverbs  26:11

This dog is as sick as one, as are his kids today… so I may or may not be returning to this folly this afternoon. Check back after lunch for your daily dose of Running Local… unless my dose of this lovely flu bug keeps the train off track.

“L’audace, L’audace, toujours l’audace!” — Frederick the Great

Audacity, Audacity, always Audacity! This was the general order of Prussia’s Frederick the Great to his field commanders– always be bold in your thougths and action as the bold are the ones who achieve.

Hey, if you can conquer a big chunk of Europe on those words, who knows what else you can do with them.
