    In keeping with the wonderful chauvinist culture we men cultivated on the trading floor and in consideration of the humor that was so important to sanity maintenance, I suggest that we add a list of the numerous 'hotties' we all drooled over from time to time on any 'Women On The TSE Floor" list. There were some gorgeous girls working on the floor who tempted the best of us.

    You've got to be joking. How about the girls provide a list of the men they thought were worthless, or ugly....same difference wouldn't you say? But I imagine no one would be offended huh?
    I certainly know where my list starts.

    Obviously I AM joking. I guess you missed the part about humor! Were you ever ON the floor? If you are going to insult....sign your name.

    It's Jim MacPherson Terri...and you do have an excellent pedigree. Your dad was one of my favourite people EVER on the floor!

    Sorry Jim! Nice to know who I'm addressing now. Love the pedigree comment....much better than being called a dog! :0 (sorry...kid of a sideways reference back to the hotties list...not on it...don't care!) And thanks for the kind words on dad. This site brings back so many fond memeories for Mike and I on both personal and professional levels.
