Even though spring doesn't seem to be happening this year, I'm still very happy to be in Michigan. No hurricanes. No flooding at all where I live. No raging fires. Bugs don't get big enough to carry away a cat. No big earthquakes and very, very few little ones. No gators. Heh... now... if I could just persuade all the people to move to Florida in the winter, it would be perfect. BigGrin


Why? What did FL ever do to you?

I'd just gotten back into the habit of going on afternoon walks around my office complex after lunch. Alas, that came to a halt yesterday. Thank you very little, Mother Nature.

Go home, Mother Nature. You're drunk.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Not drunk, bipolar and off her meds! BigGrin

Well, that seems to be the case here in Colorado all the time.

If you and/or Ed want to make a road trip, I'd love to meet you guys in person.
The rest of Detroit's residents... I'm less enthusiastic about meeting. Wink

Metro Detroit is a very different place than the city of Detroit. I have been to the city, but not for quite some time.

Now for the million dollar question, where in the world are you, Jason?

I'm in Jacksonville, FL
My grandparents used to have a little cabin up in the UP just north of Mackinac Island... The place where I learned (the hard way) that ambient air temperature and lake water temperature have NOTHING to do with one and other.
So that is really the extent of my personal experience with the entire state of Michigan.

Well... That and the fact that I'm originally from Dayton, OH... So, of course, blue and yellow are the colors of the devil...
