Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably know..
That's Great news, I read your posts all the time..
I am a DV 70%-100% and you are very motivating. I know we can use someone with your knowledge in the DAV..
GOOD LUCK in your new job.
Great News Privateer! Congrats. Sounds like a really good fit for you..
Super good news private. I know things are really tough out there. Glad you found something...
Oh and for those who call me "private" which is not the same as "privateer" in meaning (smile)... I was an officer and barely a gentleman, so you can call me Sir..
The "privateer" screen name comes from the time in my life when I drag raced a motorcycle and was a privateer, meaning I had no factory sponsorship in the racing world...
I have long wondered where that screen name came from. Very interesting. And, congrats on the job...
I actually thought you were a boat guy but then again you have to realize that I have synapses that misfire regularly. LOL.
Would be a good name for a boat. Since you mention boats, I have my eye on a real nice 24" Bayliner a guy up the street is selling. *sigh*..
Bayliners are nice ! I bet that 24 footer is expensive, though..
The term "privateer" is not much used these days. Back in the day, it was applied to anyone who raced just about anything with no factory sponsorship. Mostly in the motorcycle racing world, from what I 'member..
But ya, it does go back to the 17th century and forward, applied to ships not flown under national flag, I think. Which is probably why it got adopted to mean "without factory sponsorship". No doubt the first commentator to use it at a race was a Brit. Heh...
Congratulations on the new job - I know your successes here will help you motivate others! Keep up the great work!..
I figured you for a government-sanctioned pirate, not a private..
Thanks for clearing that up!.
