We chatted a bit, although since it was cold and he had to be in Louisville, we didn't visit long. Shawn seems like a great guy, we talked about work, children, trips, and he even brought me a travel mug. It was nice to put a face with the name, and I hope I can chat with you more in the future. Have a safe trip home.
Nice Job Guys. Another meet up in the books.

Let us know how it goes and if you miss having all those channels you have to pay for, but never watch. You can't get Doctor Who on Netflix or Hulu?

The DW and I have tickets to the IU vs Penn St. game tonight, but I am second guessing going. The kids are spending the night at a friends so I won't cancel that. We're both tired, so I thought resting might be a better idea? Thoughts?
I say go out and have a great time. You certainly deserve to have some fun.

You Canadians and your cold weather. I appreciate the sharing, but it was 6 degrees when I got up this morning and you can take it back now please. Hey CJ, how about one of those weather patterns where we get a little warm weather from the south?

Go for it... sleep can wait! If the kids are already planning to spend the night with a friend anyway, and you could probably use a little bit of a distraction for a few hours.

Coincidentally, I'm going to go see IU play next Wednesday...

I've been watching that show--it's a lot of fun. AJ Bombers looked like a cool place. There was some other place that had bacon-wrapped mozzarella sticks, too.

I say go. The distraction will be welcome and it will hopefully provide some entertainment.

Hope everyone has a great day.

I know this great BBQ place if you want to visit me. Or, David and I were thinking about a meet at mammoth cave. It is about 1.5 hours away from my home, but it is fun to go thru the cave and listen to the stories. They also have camping or hotel, which are very cheap. They have a cheesy looking Dino city down the road put together by others, but I've never done that.

The distraction may do you good, and so may the rest. What does Kim want to do?

-20 Celsius here... For you American's that's -5 Fahrenheit.

For you southern Americans, that's what you think it is here everyday anyways.

Taunting and teasing is not an effective way to make friends...

Unless of course you are inviting 700 of us over...
