Hoist those sails and prepare to get under way today with a true adventure of parley and codes (Really just more guidelines) with your friends, customers and fellow employees. (Or shall we call them shipmates?) So shiver me timbers, a-yast me hearties and remember to swab the decks before you go ashore.
