        Ah, I thought he was passing our Spam, or gas. Acid, huh? I guess that is not like the acidity needed for cooking, like a nice white balsamic vinegar....

    My "er" comment was supposed to be a "reply" to Kat's comment but it posted as a separate comment. Huh?

        Was a bit busy with work mounting up, and finally the holidays.

        Now I've moved to near Orlando and I'm now taking classes at Full Sail University!

        January 28, 2013 at 12:28 pm |
        • AleeD®

        • AleeD®@DJCP

          My apologies. I thought you were playing with the FSU Tallahassee abbrev. Looked it up and now see that's you weren't playing with words. VERY cool school! What are you going to major in?

          Trying to keep my eyes from spinning. Between my left hand being empty and my head apparently in a similar state, I'm surprised I found my way in to work today. :) Could you find a way to funnel some of that CA rain over & down this-a-way? We sure could use some daily 30 minute showers 'round here.

          wish I could and would if I could.......

    Good morning. I only watched a bit of the Pro Bowl, NFC won, big deal. The Pro Bowl seems to be the Disney World for non-super bowl players, its just for fun in a beautiful place.

    Snow, sleet, ice and finally rain expected here today, should make for some fun. Have a great day, everyone!

      You are correct on that azzumption. Hubs and I had a timeshare in Ko Olina and we used to go every year for Valentines Day and some years caught the Pro Bowlers there. Plenty of partying, not so much football. Hubs enjoyed seeing the players out and about though.

    Good morning all, and Happy Monday.
    Going to be a long week. Auditors show up later today for what is always a fun filled week of festivities.

    How is everyone else doing today?

    Good morning and happy Monday to all. I forgot to put on my wedding ring this morning. I should be punished.
