So of course, I have NO doubt that I'll be transferred soon...Law of Averages. Can;t have me happy at work!
Glad to hear it! Will he be the Assistant Regional Manager or the Assistant TO the Regional Manager?

I hate it when the Cowboys win and I pick against them. I think they have cost me more picks than any other team.

Sometimes just because you can do it doesn't always make it worth while. It seems like half the time when I go to do a simple repair it turns into an all day long thing with 3 or 4 trips into town to get something else I didn't think I needed. Sometimes it is just easier to let somebody else do it and use your Saturday for something more productive.

I have a 1993 truck and a 2011 truck. One of them I can work on, the other has an engine hiding somewhere under all the wires.

Well, it looks like it is better than some of the alternatives. I hope it works out for both of you!

Ok, you got me. What actually happened was I dusted off the old TV remote and switched input from HDMI to TV. It was on channel 8-1 with a black screen... typcial. I scrolled through a few other channels, still just seeing a black screen, then I used the remote and hit 13-1 (our NBC station) and I saw Chuck Lofton on the screen talking about the rain that was moving through yesterday afternoon.

But I did have various pieces of metal in my hand and the ladder was out. I actually was just turning it on so that I could crank the volume and hear it if I did something that made it pick up a signal. I never expected it to actually work when I turned it on. If it hadn't come on when I turned it on I was going on the roof to either make the antenna work or make the worlds biggest lightning rod.

Good morning gentlemen

I've got two kids who have been wound up since 6:30. I think they are excited for preschool.

I might use one of yours. For some reason, the wife doesn't like my present wallpaper.

You're right, the foil and coathanger story was better.

Thanks, Donald! They really are fantastic pictures. What shutter delay did you use for the fireworks?

I don't see why! I like that one! By sure if you like it use it. I have a special surprise I had to order from china and can't wait to upload a pic of it when it shows up and I can install it.

The Photos are awesome.

They might ask you to work in marketing at DW! Keep them coming when you have time. With about a year and a half before our next trip it makes it a little less depressing.

Sometimes f11 1/2 sec or f11 for 4 secs depends on lighting but usually I have it set to 200 iso. But still learning. I may be getting into macro soon also.

Well, I drafted Brady, Ridley, & Lloyd, so I am all in on Pats. And, I hate Brady and the Pats. So, I eith get to cheer for my fantasy team doing well or cheer that that they lose every game. Either way, I'm not going to do well with this.[/QUOTE]

Hate Brady and the Pats! How about a little love for the dads from the northeast. I have Rodgers, Jennings and McKinley in my league. I guess I'm riding the Packers this year.....Oh! and I hate the Packers. Want to trade?

Good Luck!
