    Default Passing the torch. Leaving PureOC

    Hello everyone,

    I am sure many of you remember what transpired here and how it came to be that I am managing PureOC. Dave gave me a shot based on pure faith and I thank him. My time managing Pure has been a wonderful experience and I am proud to have been able to help keep Pure alive and growing.

    However now a new and exciting opportunity has come my way and I must take it. This new position doing PR relations for one of our current vendors would be a conflict of interest. Therefore I must choose. It was not an easy choice but at the end of the day I have to think of what is best for my children and my career. I will still be around and will be talking with whoever my replacement may be. Over the course of the next few weeks I will be passing the torch.

    Thank you all and I pray we can still remain friends after I pass the torch.

    Thanks again,
    Sandy Bruce

    I called my wife and told her that I was arrested for doing 45 in a school zone. Then I acted like the connection went bad, and hung up on her. I didn't answer the phone for an hour.

    She was pretty hot by the time we talked later on,.........

    Why don't some people like April Fools jokes?
