Good morning everyone.

Yesterday night, I crashed! I've never felt anything like that (must mean I'm getting older ). But I've been finishing up my school, working, and getting up early to work out at the gym. Long story short, it all caught up with me and I just crashed and fell asleep at 8:30. I got ten hours and I still feel like I could sleep more!

So I didn't workout today, and am going to get some more sleep tonight. At lunch, I'm going to go out for some BBQ as that usually refuels me pretty good . BBQ is sort of my "cure all" medicine.

Anyway, have a great day everyone!

Of course it is okay that you post a song on the thread. I started the thread for everyone if they felt like a Christmas song to post it. I love that song also, I still don't have that on MP3 or CD.

I hope you are able to pursue more classes, I hope you get the tooth issue fixed soon.

Good Morning MMC!!!! The warm up continues today with a high in the low 40's predicted. It's hard to beleive that we had 8 inches of snow on Monday and I can see the grass already in some spots. It will probably all be gone by the end of the day. There is talk that we may see more next monday though. I don't see much happening around here today. I woke up with a sinus headache, stuffed up nose, and sore throat. I would blame CAH but I think it may have something to do with the 6 hours I spent outside shoveling snow. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!

I hope you get feeling better...and I hope there's no more snow in your immediate future...you've done more than your share of shoveling!

Enough chatter, back to the codes!
Good luck with your last shift and your next test.

Lot of talk about iPhones on here recently...my wife and I have been thinking of getting one, or some other smart phone. We just have plain ol' cell phones because we've been too cheap to pay for data. But, any more, all new ones seem to be smart phones so I will need to break down and get one when we upgrade.

The main reason I want a smart phone: the MMC forums! I'm already looking forward to the Christmas Blossoms 2013 threat, and with a phone that has a camera, I can post all sorts of good Christmas finds...excited to go "hunting" for them in late September!

Sometimes you just need to "crash."

Good morning,

I will be heading to work soon, it is inventory night. My head still feels all blocked up, I just want to feel better. It will be a long night.

Enjoy The Pines.

This takes videos too? I plan to take a lot of videos as well. Wayne and I will both get one so we will have double storage that he can take video and pictures too.

Same here. We try to keep our monthly cost down so we never added internet or texting plan to our phone and very limited amount of minutes for voice calls. Something else to think about when upgrading. I like to keep my monthly bill very low. We hardly have any minutes on our phone and just don't use it often. Just recently added a home phone only because it came free with our internet plan so I can finally talk to people but I have hardly used that either. In the past, no phone calls except on our mobile to mobile minutes.
