    Absolutely!  Well said, ceo.

    One of our family stories is how my grandfather Clarence (Clare) Bousquet loved to dynamite the tree stumps as trails were being cleared in the 1930s for what would become Bousquet Ski Area.  He used the magneto blasting detonator (wooden box with plunger), which was the standard way to detonate dynamite back then.  

    Every time dynamite was detonated, the explosion would tear off some of the wiring that ran from the detonator to the blasting caps.  Grandpa would get closer and closer to the explosions b/c he didn't like to rewire the setup.  Eventually my grandmother Margaretha Bousquet, who was a nurse, would walk over to the bottom of the slopes and yell, "Claire. Claire!  Stop and put on some longer wire."

    Usually he just kept right on going.
