<<It was my best year since I bought out my ex-partner in -03. I was planning on a buttwhipping with gas over $4, groceries going up, and a lot of people nervous. Practically all my costs went up, especially soft mix. I've swallowed most smaller increases, but felt I had to test the concept of "pricing power." I got ready to get some earfuls about it.

Not one blessed word! I guess they expected it. I'm not entering the economic consultant market anytime soon. Some of my "creations" took off, too, I humbly admit.

Wow --- that is VERY good news! You need to report that over on the self employed Fools board. Always glad to hear about someone who is making the world work for them.

<<Banana brownie fudge sundae...yum.

Now that you mention it, I'm guessing anything is better with a brownie in it!

Merry Christmas,

Seattle Pioneer
