Wow, what a year so far. I would say that this year has been like a rollercoaster ride at the Stampede. You are excited to start out, you hold on tight, then your fear makes you clench every muscle in your body at the same time. As the ride comes into the station, you realize that the ride wasn't as scary as you thought, and if you were to stand in line for 2009 again, you wouldn't fear so much.
Consumer confidence has returned in most sectors and we're starting to see light in the tunnel for the oilfield/ industrial sector.
Take everthing in stride.
