    But you obviously have a nice job and are stable financially to be able to do so.

    I'd be doing the same thing you just did with the power cords if I could! You are living the dream my friend, enjoy it!

    Thank You Drew.
    I am grateful for where my family and I are. We have come a long way, my wife and I, and have known a life without. We are blessed in the most important ways( salvation, children, health, friends, etc) and that’s what counts.
    I do hope you are able to reward yourself soon for your hard work.

    Not a bad idea!

    I'm currently trying to figure out how to donate directly to a family in Indonesia who lost several members that were out doing a parasailing event when the tsunami struck.

    Clipdat,

    Can't say for sure about Indonesia but the International Red Cross was able to get some money to a friend in Malaysia after an earthquake 3 years ago. I did pay an additional general donation to the IRC to ensure the money got through. I don't know if that was necessary or not. I saw it as insurance and well worth it and the money made it.

    Edit: It took a week so it wasn't as fast as we've grown use to here.

    Congrats man. Just a few tips for ya on your first day.

    Leave the Star wars lunchbox at home

    No Christmas Moose ties, or the like.

    Shake hands, no fist bumps

    Have the Vet clip your nails

    Leave the Parrot at home

    ….and most importantly,

    Don't wear that frickin' Panther cologne we heard tell you like. :)

    Does this mean a good lap dance is out? Leaves quite an impression on the first day of a new job.

    Drew, here you go. Just for you ( in a way) this week;

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    A true 70's classic!
    I was a new kid in town a bunch of times so it hits home on the girlfriends side of the song.

    I thought of you being the new kid at work (town). :) B)

    that is surreal, from my sixty-year-old perspective. It was inescapable during my senior year of college... and aggravating as all getout every time it played.

    Whenever I see this thread title, it reminds me of the Ricky Nelson song "Stood Up". Great solo by future Elvis guitarist James Burton. B)
