Just letting you know what is up with us and our plans to move to Orono to open a restaurant. We have the business plan almost completed and the menu well under development. I have begun work on the logo as well. Lynn and I have asked some of our close friends for some help as well. Those resources include a restaurant franchise wiz to review our business plan and ideas, a New York trained chef to tweak our menu, and a well known graphic designer and film director who also does interior/environmental design to help aide in the look and feel of the restaurant/pub. Lynn and I are so excited and more so THANKFUL that these folks have agreed to help us. We cannot thank them enough and will make sure that they are well fed and have a place to stay when in Maine.

We do have a name and theme but still need to get the paperwork filed before we release that info. Plus we have found a realtor in the Orono area who is excited about we want to do and is willing to work with us.

Our house is not on the market yet but a realtor will be coming through on Friday to chat with us. We still have some work to do on the homestead but it is getting there.

Most of my clients now know about the move and are very excited for us. They all agreed to continue to work with me when we move which I cannot thank them enough. Hopefully I can pick up a few new accounts in the surrounding area.

That is it so far. I see that the area has had some snow. Lancaster is FINALLY getting some snowflakes as I type.

We would like to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a WONDERFUL holiday season. Thanks for the support for our future endeavor.

See you in 2008!
Lynn and Russ
