Who is John Gault?
I've met him. He stayed with us on 9/11.
The both of us sat on my couch silent and watched it all go down on the tv.
He stood up and said,"time to go find Atlantis."
He then packed his bags and left 3 days early.
I've just received a letter yesterday. He's asking me if I'm familiar with Colorado (?) and if I'm happy with my work. that's it ! That's all it says.
The banks aren't through with you.
Boy that was creepy to read.

The people that lived there before us mentioned that in the past they had tried having a bed and breakfast. Wow what a great idea. We had extra rooms. Why not. So we went to the Plymouth town hall and got the permit. Started advertising and Viola, Guests.
Our first guests were from Germany and that troubled Barbara. How would she cope with people whose relatives caused great harm to her relatives. They had just arrived in town and needed a place to stay. Called us and came right over.
They were a young couple full of life and always smiling. Barbara was at first gracious and quickly warmed to there enthusiasm. We learned the next day that our guests were expecting a baby which just thrilled Barbara. Barbara and our lady guest (Gretchen) giggled for hours on the plans of the future with a baby.
When the left Barbara sat down and contimplated how silly it was for her fears but best of all she really liked this new job.
We've been at this since 2000 which to me feels like that in entering a new century I've started a new life.
Some of the things I've learned in running this business.
1.) The customer is not always right. Especially when they start telling me how I will run my business when there around.
Actually that's about all I've learned. Sounds funny but every year it's something new to learn which probably won't work next year.
Have you heard about this Mayan thing? That the world will change as we know it in 2012. I won't go as far as to say that it will be destoyed but that there seems to be some pretty strange stuff about to happen.
The thing that gets me is how so many religious sects can claim they're it, they've got the answer to all of lifes problems.
I don't think so.
What makes any of these think that God has especially picked them to save the world or to be given the answer to share or not to share with there fellow man. I say stick them all into the same room and let them fight it out.
