JBE gets some great help from Body Specs!

Sorry to all of you who've taken an interest in our project for being absent a while.  Here's why - under the heading of good news following bad. After starting my normal conditioning pursuits September 1, giving me a solid year to be ready for our undertaking, I crashed my motorcycle into a deer on October 6. I was pretty badly beaten up, with 6 broken ribs to show for it. After 4 nights in the hospital, and a couple very difficult weeks, I began healing. I've been warned that it will take a very long time to heal completely.

Thank you!

Very importantly, our new partnership with Artrain was formally announced, along with our new timeline. The magnitude of our ambition is more important than our timeline, and with Artrain's help, every single aspect of our vision has been restored and WILL BE DELIVERED-- in 2014.

Thanks to the incredible reception from those attending, the great job by emcee Steven Clark from channel 7, the phenomenal John U.
