        Thank you, Sigs! Just a lot of work and a potential major deal that is causing some analysis and deep reflection. When something comes along that could change your life, it's somewhat distracting.

      I missed your birthday! Cry pardon. I hope you had a good one! Still in Alaska? Is it beautiful? You travel safe!

        Thank you! I realized during my birthday that I had it checked off as "don't make public," so that was of my own doing. And I did stop at a beautiful place in Alaska - but the place where I'm working isn't one of those beautiful places. It still has its own uniqueness, though.

        That is somewhere my husband would love to move to. Me, I'm less enthusiastic about the idea. Enjoy your time there!

      Hi J,
      Hope you are having a great weekend! Just thought I'd drop you a note.

        Thank you, Danie! Indeed I am. My birthday just ended, and I'm away from family, so that's a bit of a bummer, but I'm in Alaska on a gig and making some decent money, so woo-hoo for that.

        I hope this find you well and happy and fulfilled. Thank you very much for the note!

      BTW-awhile ago you posted a video...I watched it and then I watched another that was sorta *attached* to the first. Was that you that was caught in a tornado? The car windows got blown out? I though I recognized your voice.

        Heya, Sigs. No, I haven't been caught in a tornado with blown-out windows. I did hold up the phone for a video one time in a tough drive through Wyoming when a storm, with snow, was going on. I did some tired narration on that one.

        Hope this finds you well!

      How are you today? I hope you have been able to make some progress with your friends. I don't know what their tragic news is, but I know what it's like to try to find a way to help people you care about. It's so hard when you can't just fix something!

        Thank you for the thoughtful note! A really nice, really capable, very sharing colleague was in a car accident. She ended up in surgery in the hospital, is about to be released. Her husband, whom we all knew and liked, was killed in the accident. Just a horrible thing. We're all doing what we can.

      :)) My family lives around Scottsbluff, NE and it takes us about 4 hrs to get there. But that's on secondary roads. Next time you're up this way, we should get a cuppa joe or something! Ft. Collins is beautiful. It has been years and years since I've been there, though.

      Hi Grandpa! I just saw the video you posted driving to Gillette, WY. That's where I live! Haha. I thought your destination was further south than me, didn't you say 4 hours each way? You must not be too far into CO, that or you drive REALLY FAST! *wink* Glad your trip was a safe one.

        Hey, very cool! Yeah, I live in the Fort Collins area. Google Maps says it's supposed to take me 4 hours 20 minutes - but I don't drive slow.

      Hello Grandpa, I'm just giving you a heads up about an edit on one of your posts, it is in the Snopes thread. Another member had included a link by mistake in their message and in removing it for them, I realised I'd also have to remove the one contained in your quote.
