When I was running business in NY, my commute would go a half hour East, on Long Island in the Morning, and from there ended up an hour or two to Midtown Manhattan. I could think of nothing worse than sitting on the LIE, or Belt Parkway. Fortunately I was young, a New Camaro, and some tunes.
During one of those drives, I figured out how many YEARS, I think 12, I would spend sitting in my car. It was one big reason I moved....A shorter commute.
Today, I simply dont commute, or work for pay, but boy do I still work every day!
