Bruce, I'm going to have to keep your wisdom in mind a bit more, and
create more of a psychological barrier.

Unfortunately, I come from a family with a tendency to promote a
certain amount of workaholism. It's too easy to hear my father
berating me, and telling me about all the hours he was putting in.

I try and lead a more balanced life, but sometimes I think I fall a
bit short of the mark.

Maybe I should put together a wall poster of those words Jack
Nicholson kept typing in the movie "The Shining." "All work and no
play makes Jack a dull boy."
