    Greetings everyone :) Yes I will post some pics Les. I am going to start to get the spider webs up in the next few days. I do not have a clue on what my costume is going to be this year Les.

    WOW it is a very quiet day yesterday and there looks like there may have been some issues with the boards late last night. I am working from home today as I had problems sleeping.

    Morning all! It's a foggy day here and a bit chilly. It's supposed to warm up to the low 60s F if the sun gets out.
    I have't been to Comms yet, Mike, but if there were problems I'm sure someone mentioned them in the Tech thread.

    There does not appear to have been any reported problems Les. It was just a quiet evening. I got a few more hours of sleep and are feeling better. The heat wave came to an end out here and temperatures are more seasonable now.

    Hey all. The sun finally came out here so I sat out for a bit. It was a bit chilly in the shade but warm in the sunshine. There won't be too many warm days now until spring!

    Hi. Quiet around here these days, isn't it? Weather out here has turned cold, and it's sent me sneezing. Other than that, all is well.

    I've spent the best part of the week working out as my weight decided not to shift. Stupid weight :p

    At least today it did so almost below the 200lb mark which is still heavy but not as bad as my starting weight of 236 lol

    I can certainly feel your pain, but lately I've just stopped being concerned about weight. I'm just big. That's all there is to it. Even when I was young, skinny, and healthy, I still weighed in at 220. I really think some people are meant to be big. I'm also at least 6 inches taller than about anyone I know, so that probably has something to do with it. As long as I'm healthy, I don't worry about it.

    Morning all. It's cloudy, cool, and drizzly here. The forecast says we might get some sun but I'm not holding my breath.
    I got a letter from ParcelForce yesterday that they had a package for me that had Customs charge. I've paid them so I am expecting delivery today. It had better come..

    Hi Gang,

    Glad it got there and wasn't "lost" along the way. How bad did customs hit you for it?

    Nice RAH Boba, Les!

    The weather's turned cold here (after being in the upper 80's earlier in the week) so of course I've come down with something. It happens every year at this time, just like clockwork. Ugh.

    My boyfriend will be here on Sunday. I'm getting excited.

    Morning all! I got whacked around £26 for Customs/VAT charges for Boba. I do like ParcelForce's new payment system though - you can pay by credit/debit card either by phone or online. It saves fumbling for cash when the delivery guy comes, and when you pay you either get delivery the next day or you can designate a day.

    The sun is trying to come out here. If it makes it out it's supposed to be warm (mid 60s F).

    England take on France tonight in the first Rugby WC semi-final. I hope England make it through!

    Good morning everyone :) Jeasnnette and I are off to a photo show today. Jeannette is excited as she will be seeing the camera that she will be buying in 2008 along with a host of various lenses.

    Rugby fan, Les? I saw an item about the French team yesterday. They have this really big hairy bearded player. Scary guy. Guess it didn't help them much, huh? ;)

    We watched United 93 just now. Very touching film.

    Our new dvd/hdd recorder is working great! I already have this time shift thing down as well. We watched a comedy show and recorded Lost. After the show ended, we started to watch Lost while it was still being recorded. All in all, we finished ten minutes after the episode ended (in real time ;)). Plus, we were able to skip three 7-minute commercial breaks!
