BEST SONG EVER ... I have to thank YUKON JACK who introduced me to this song a couple weeks ago, and in turn, thank our good friend DJ T-MONEY for sliding it Yuke's way. I can't believe I didn't hear it when it first came out (in 2000)! Definitely not a Bear song, but it's just so damn cool & smooth. Beware, there are a lot of "F-Bombs," so consider this fair warning! Now, turn it up: http://youtu.be/6_9blTxwFeA

VACATIONS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE … I can't stress this enough - Take as much vacation & time off as you can! I think it’s directly related to my lifelong pursuit of Excellence In Slackery, and science has proven that if you don’t take holidays, you could die.
