Not really..  The fiancee and I were sitting here one night (long before any plating) and I told her I wanted to own a business one day but I didnt know what to call it..  She said; "Well you look like a big angry redhead gorilla...  You should call it red gorilla restorations.."  And there you have it..  Something we both thought was funny and it had a good ring to it..  RGR for short.   ;D

So when I made out a receipt for Steve I went ahead and put that on there and figured I would give it a try as something on the side and see where it goes.  If it fizzles out then no harm.
