Thanks everyone. It's as much an honor this time as it was the first time. I suppose that means my blog posts need to be a bit more consistent doesn't it? lol

Do those higher expectations come with higher compensation? There are . . . contributions . . . (yeah that's the word) to be paid.

Congrats Sly.

Van, I know you never will, but never come visit me. You will find way too much Feline.

Thanks. My wife will swear that I do not need an extra helping of Texas donuts. Feel free to ignore all such nonsense.

As I recently learned, I apparently have a way with cats despite the fact that I don't like them. ;)

Thanks guys. This almost makes up for the last two weeks in which I have done the following:

1 Accidentally erased the hard drive of my main machine while trying to reinstall Windows XP, and

2. My 2006 Mac Pro suddenly almost refuses to boot under Lion. It takes ages (sometimes 20 min) to get to the Login screen and may not accept any keyboard input even then.

At this rate any funds I might have had for beverages (virtual or otherwise) will be going for additional blood pressure medicine. Any of you guys made voodoo dolls in my image? lol

Wait a minute. Shouldn't that round be on him? Or at least someone else?

BTW I think I will be adding "voluntold" to my vocabulary.
