I think someone forgot their nametag today.
Nice score! You remember his offer to the DISDads?

He did ask if we were going to be around for the fireworks but that would be too long a day for the FIL.

I hear with the recruiting class he's got lined up for next year he will be rolling out another NBA all star team. I'd say I wonder how he does it but there might be a clue in how he left the last 2 programs he was with. I'm not bitter, just jealous. My Illini have been close twice in my lifetime but just haven't finished the job. Hope it happens before I get old.

Noel will probably go pro, but they do have a great recruiting class. He still has to get them to play as a team. I don't think anyone has any delusions about how he is recruiting. It's not if there are violations, it's when will the NCAA find out. Still, it is fun to watch the product on the Court.

Chris I am sorry that they were not able to get to the bottom of your problem. I guess the only good things is that they know what it is not! I was perplexed like you when I read about adoption situation. With the upcoming placement being her third hosting it does lead one to wonder if she is working the system and hungry for attention. Sadly, if it is an attention thing she is missing the boat and not settling on a family to call her own where she would get the attention she obviously craves!


Happy First Birthday Ryder!!!

Thank you to all that kept me and my family in there thoughts and prayers. It has been a hard 7 days since DW G-Ma died. She is now in a better place and the initial shock is over, now we can remember and reflect on the great life she lead.

Tired of hearing the hype and these bandwagon Hurricane fans. Glad Marquette shut them up big time. Tough loss by Arizona. Settling in now watching Syracuse/Indiana.

Sorry they haven't found the cause yet. Hopefully they will soon. Doubly sorry there were no hallucinations.

Were they able to narrow it down? I haven't had a virus and haven't seen any other posts about it.

I was thinking the same thing you said in your other post about a free trip to the US. Sorry you had to go through all that. Hopefully she finds her place in the world.

Didn't see the start but the Bulls outplayed them early on. I think part of it is the grind and extra attention eventually wore them down. Still a great streak.

I've always enjoyed watching UK, but his recruiting illegalities do bug me. He just seems like a sleezball...

I can't believe they didn't find anything in there... like bacon.

I hope these new meds will help.

Do I like basketball that much. Not really. (wife does but doesn't ever watch it) Do I even know who is playing for the Bucks this year. Nope. But for a free night on the town (minus gas) how can i say no. Last time we went (which we got tickets from these guys a couple of years ago) the ticket price was around $230 per ticket.

I can't turn down free. Now for our half time entertainment, (I looked it up) Vanilla Ice will be performing.
SWEET! Hope you aren't inviting Barry to crash the party.

Ryder is a year old already? wow.

So, we found out yesterday that the bank has accepted our offer on the short-sale house we're trying to buy. If all things go smoothly, we're looking to be closing by the end of April. It still means no WDW trips this year, but it also means an incredible amout of space for the family, and maybe even a "real" office for the DW, instead of a laptop and a couch!

So I'm pretty happy this morning.
