They cut my sternum in half, cut both sides of number 1 thru 7 ribs loose, then cut my original heart out. You can’t hurt me, Princess. LOL

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

PackRat, it’s good to see that your new heart has great sense of humor. It’s amazing that you sound so great after your ordeal.

It’s amazing I can remember my password or type with all these drugs. There’s another topic Turtle started on me a few days ago for this heart thing of mine.

The question is alien to me. I am the son of a farmer. One gets up and works because the work must be done. End of! Sleeping past 4 or 5, depending on what needed to be done, was unheard of in my home. Sometimes I had to be up earlier. One thing for sure, no one had trouble falling asleep in our home Motivation to work? Wow, that blows my mind! I guess I'm from a different generation. You young whipper snappers make me wonder!(written in a Gabby Hays voice).

For me, it's quite literally money and coffee that gets me out of bed early (and then before I started driving, I would need to get a 4 mile run in and a gym workout, but now I digress).

I trade the forex market between Sun pm and Fri pm, and while it's automated, most of my money is made overnight while I sleep during the European market. 99% of my trades close during that time frame, which means when I wake-up in the morning, I've either made 1-3% while I slept or presently in drawdown...like I am presently.

While it sucks that I got up at 3 am to see if I made more money while I slept, It keeps me going knowing money comes in regardless of me driving or not and each morning I get to see more of it...and of course, drink more coffee. Man, I love my morning cuppa.

The challenge, the coffee and the MONEY.

When I need motivation or have a hard day ahead I turn on the coffee pot and listen to "Eye of the Tiger" and "Livin' in America" from one of the Rocky movies.
