#17: It will get people to stay after work for the insurance company presented driving safety refresher course to cut down the companies accident rate.

Fred, this was a personal experience, ~20 years ago when I drove a truck for a dairy. The meeting was unlike any other meeting I've ever been to. It started out with the presenter saying "I've talked to fireman who say they've never had to cut the seat belt off a dead body to get it out of a car" rebutted by a fellow employee saying "I have wheres the ------ beer". It went downhill from there.

Had some over in Bend, OR when we were with the "Kids" and new Grand Daughter. Must have been on off night for me and single malts; I thought it was 'yuck.' Joan thought it tasted 'just like Chev. Regal.'

Go figure.
