    They are having a good year. Lexi’s a teenager now, and that’s come with some hiccups and weird new shit, but all in all it’s gone fairly well. Charlotte continues to do well in school. They’ve both fallen in love with Minecraft, which I tolerate because of the creative expression the game allows for, and the lack of violence or any other objectionable content.

    My house is nuts. We’re running our e-liquid business out of the home/office space, and my kids have claimed everything else but my bedroom. Those girls are going to kill me before they turn 18. I swear.

    How are you? How was the biking this past year?

    Life’s going well. Between work, family, and our e-liquid business, I have almost no free time, but it’s nice to be busy and thriving. Everyone here is doing well.

    Feast your eyes and ears on this. It’s got a better beat than the fox song, at least.

    I wish it would. This morning was particularly windy, and that makes it worse. I just want to see the sun for more than an hour at a time. (my weather app tells me it’ll be 65* and sunny on Saturday. Here’s hoping)

    Good morning, Firedogs! Nice to see you’ve kept the lights on. Hello from Central Texas!

    Lol. I’ve been on the administrative side of our business for a few years, but it doesn’t exactly fit what I do, and I’ve maxed out the pay scale there. So I’ve been pushing my boss the last year or so to move me over the what we call the ‘professional services’ side of things, [...]

    FDA approval will be required, which I’m now reading costs upwards of $50k and takes around 2 – 3 years. And that’s EACH product. So our small boutique juice line with 3 flavors will need 3 separate approvals. It’s not feasible for a small business any longer.

    That’s what homeowners insurance is for, though. Accidents that occur in your home or on your property. Dog bites are pretty standard. The attorney explained that there’s actually and industry matrix that determines payouts based on age of the victim, location of the injuries, type of scarring, number of stitches, etc. It’s a pretty cut [...]

    Alright kids. I’ve got to get busy with my day. A morning walk to take with the dog, some breakfast to be had, and work to be done.

    I love you all, and I’ll check back in later for any messages to pass along to oldnslow and cbl :)

    I wasn’t there. Here’s what happened. Kristen and I were attending a local city council meeting (in Georgetown) to lend support to their local e-cig shop. The council was voting on a new ordinance that would force the shop to close it’s doors by making it illegal to vape in any public or common space [...]

    Nah. We’re only about $1,000 in. And the FDA has given a 75 day comment period, then a 2 year non-enforcement period. So we’ll be able to operate for 2 years at least. If it looks like a sensible move to apply for FDA approval, we will. I think we’ll just end up shutting it [...]

    FDA proposed regulations were released 20 minutes ago.

    Our business is no longer viable. Deeming regulations will require us to seek FDA approval for the product, which will take years and is far too costly.

    Goodbye small businesses, hello big tobacco.

    I think it’s really important as well :) The girls had a good time last night, and Charlotte got over her initial embarrassment of being out and seen with stitches on her face, so that was also positive.

    I met with a personal injury attorney yesterday and started that process. I would seek recompense myself, but I was worried I might now be able to refrain from physically assaulting the owner of they protested in the slightest.

    The last few days have been incredibly chaotic. Here’s an update – Charlotte was attacked by a neighbor’s dog on Tuesday night. The dog bit her face, and we had to visit the hospital to get the wounds closed. She’s only 8 years old, but was a real trooper about the whole thing. She’s more [...]

    Good morning firedogs. Thanks for the post and host, Ruth.

    I watched The Walking Dead as well :) I flipped to the Academy Awards at one point and Ellen was walking around in the crowd handing out slices of pizza… Wow. So Fuku is as bad as we thought all along. Maybe worse. Sad news. I suppose all we can do is wait and see [...]

    Aereo is in trouble here. SCOTUS won’t let big businesses down. My thought – The broadcasters need to work WITH Aereo. If broadcasters can get solid information on users and viewership numbers, the broadcasters can increase their ad buy prices by factoring in those viewers. It’s a win/win. Aereo gets to keep operating, and the [...]
