You and Norm have me really longing for my coaching days. I've coached 3 seasons of soccer and 7 seasons of tennis. I really miss it but there was no one to watch the kids this season so I had to give it up.

Yep, the $399 is a great price…
It's the funds needed for the DVC membership that I want but don’t have the disposable bucks for.

Still trying to finish up my project, a revised training manual and matching presentation, leaves me little time to listen to ESPN radio or post at work.

Tonight, no soccer, cutting grass, child activities (except a trip to/from dance class for one) and it was nice to enjoy the cool weather and the bugs chirping. It gears back up with soccer and multiple activities tomorrow and into the weekend. It was great to have a chance to relax. Wishing all of you the same.

Good to hear. We all could use a smidgen of peaceful.

I won’t relax until Friday night.
The high school will have their first home game since early August, which in our house means it’s debut time for the band’s 2012 contest show. We’ll all work our rumps off, and I’ll be more relaxed the whole time then at any moment ever spent at work.

Could you stream the game? It may be the only hockey we see for a bit?

I coached volleyball for the better part of 25 years but gave it up a couple of years ago. I did go back and coach a grade 8 team last year; it was the first time I coached kids that age in about 20 years. Turned out to be a lot of fun.

I started to play soccer again 3 years ago in a masters league. It has been great fun.

I'm hoping it goes well, but a bit nervous at how she'll respond to the surprise of it all (she likes to plan for things, even at 4 yrs old)...
Good Luck!! I married a planner and it takes all the fun out of surprises!! Hopefully your DD isn't an extreme planner yet and can still appreciate your surprise!! (If she doesn't, maybe she can appreciate all the planning that went into surprising her )

SW is now advertising the Express Bag Check, from their website:

Follow three simple steps to take advantage of Express Bag Drop:

Arrive at the airport with your boarding pass*. You can get a boarding pass online as early as 24 hours before your flight!
Scan the bar code on your boarding pass at the Express Bag Drop kiosk and indicate the number of bags you are checking.
Show your government-issued photo ID to the Customer Service Agent who will tag your bag so you can be on your way!
Wow, can't believe it took a half an hour to check your bags at the curb. Well, I think a line for people who don't have to get boarding passes printed should speed things up. But it may come down to whatever line is shortest when you get there. It doesn't sound like you have to pre-register for it and commit to using it ahead of time. At the very least you can bypass the skycaps knowing there will be the kiosk and dedicated line inside.

Not too bad for a guy that's not so handy!

Hope you all have a great day!

and how much is a can of hair spray?

in the 1980s, you could find 20 cans of hair spray in any house. Now?? I might not have one in mine.

http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2012/09/vilerat/
A horrible thing for people to lose their lives simply for being American.

I think it's very possible for people to have real friendships on-line. That said, I think every friendship is different and on-line friendships are different from people you see in real life. Does that mean you can't be better friends with someone on-line than you might be in real life? I don't think so. For as many people who "open up" on-line, there are probably an equal amount who don't because they are not comfortable.

being in hvac you have to know heating, a/c, plumbing and electrical.
OK sure, but I have now idea what you are talking about let alone try it. I guess that is how you can get $125 an hour.

Then just the normal handling complaints to cap it off.

Here is some monorail shots to take up some space here:

nice pics!! go DVC!! hope they catch the people who broke into that longhouse.

Congrats on the win! Should I tell DD the proper term is "Keeper"? She really likes being the "Goalie".

Morning guys!

Its Thursday once again, and hopefully I get to head home this afternoon. Im back in Manassas, and had planned on contacted DEA for another meetup, but my schedule has once again crushed that idea. I had 13.5 hrs my first day and 11 yesterday. I have a meeting this afternoon at 3 (who the beverly schedules a meeting for 3 in the afternoon?) before I drive the 4-5 hrs back to NC. Still not sure if I am going to stick around for it or just leave.


Oh and late last night, they finally made an arrest in the murder of my mother in laws cousin. Pretty stoked about that!

Matt
