  1. Congrats Ray, keep up the good work! And stay happy, it's ever so much nicer.
  2. I'll be working the same job I have now, with defined hours. My employer is allowing me to telecommute. And yeah, I'm aware of the negatives. My biggest concern is that it doesn't become like prison to me. I'll have to cultivate some new out of the house activities. Tougher being in a new city. Plus - it's Bakersfield. Not a city known for it's, well, anything. Other than heat. And lack of rain. And dirt. And gangs. And drugs, the bad ones. There are good points, they just aren't the ones that initially come to mind. The whole purpose of moving is to be close to my dad - my step mom passed away earlier this year, and he's severely visually impaired, almost blind We'll be moving in with him and hopefully making his life simpler, although it will take some adjustments for all of us. It makes things so much easier, knowing I don't have to look for a new job, as well and start over somewhere else. At my age? That would just suck.

  4. That I was .... and I have to say, the guy puts on a hell of a show. The rapport he has with his audience is really amazing, and you can feel the love flowing back and forth with his faithful followers, of which there are tons.

  15. Happy Birthday Laurie !! :haveabeer: :partytime2: :pianist: :partytime1: :guitar: :haveabeer:
  16. Thanks Kenne! Geez, no pressure here - I could be the deciding votes! I'll try to listen & vote by end of day tomorrow so as not to keep sbs waiting too long.
  17. I'm sure there was an intent here, and it's been succeassful for both Cyrus and Thicke - publicity! In the plastic world of Hollywood and the pop music scene their act has served it's purpose well, as evidenced right here - everybody's talking.
  18. My apologies for not being able to participate in skybluesky's PTT. My father had surgery last week and I had to hang around Bakersfield had take care of him - with no internet. It was a looong week. I'll have votes for Brad's, but just got home last night, so I'll try to get these listened to by the weekend. Will you be able to leave it open until Sunday Kenne?
  19. Shannon I'm so sorry I wasn't able to participate, and I was so looking forward to your list. I've been in Bakersfield taking care of my dad post surgery .... a week with no internet, and I had this, fantasy drafts, and all kinds of stuff happening. I'd like to listen and submit votes anyway, even if they are meaningless to the final ten. There's no place like home, and I'm so glad to be here!
  20. I wouldn't be either Rocky - all the Chargers just kind of suck in general lately. I'm not overly fond of my team either - I exported my rankings from my live draft in another league, and it didn't work out as well as I would have liked.
