Don't completely out rule meetings. You might be surprised how much fun a bunch of x-drunks can be. Keep an open mind on this.

Mr.Coffee, glad you posted. I'm glad (as are others) that you got day 27 coming up.
This time of year I usually bump this thread. Maybe this year, I'll just post the link to this 7 year old thread.

http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=105843

Congratulations on day 26.5!

That's really cool, MDT - I know EXACTLY what you mean. My bandmates and friends give me plenty of playful ribbing lately, I grin and roll with it.
