I agree - Calsbricks!

You can hear the tumbleweeds across the plain as they stand face to face seeing
who shoots first.... haha

Good luck guys, great work. There has been a lot of hard work to get you both
to those numbers.

Hmm, but it’s the buyers who shoot.  So I’d say they are both on a plank above
a barrel full of water and buyers are launching carts at them

(Better carts than tarts.)

You should be proud, well done! It's good to have a target or goal. I guess
it's time to reset the target, move it further out?

I had noticed some time ago, that you've been like a freight train picking
up steam with sales volume. What's today's Nectara setting his sites
on, one of the big boys here?

He was my mentor in selling Lego from the beginning, quite a sharp guy who always
have some surprise moves or strategies ready to be deloyed.

He jumped in only two years ahead of you?

my two pence

Hi
He has the right knowledge, the right space and the right job to handle such
volume and he is a real and true hard worker, just a few of us have the power
to endure endless hours of sorting and pulling out orders like him.

Not at all.

I actually watched Nolan Ryan pitch when he played for the Angels, I think
We were Dodgers fans growing up, though. Had little choice, our grandmother would
haul my brother and I to Dodger Stadium when it was first built, several times
a year. Made us pledge to be lifelong fans I remember that for her, Sandy
Koufax was the man that stood tallest on the mound... and I remember how the
excitement never dulled being there, no matter how late a night game it was
