Capt C - And your comment was any less negative? Lol. I have a job making $250K a year, what's your excuse.

That is awesome. Congratulations guys.
BJ why do you always have to put some sort of negative spin on everything? Go take a walk, get a job something, dang. Or go do what your screen name says.
