Looks nice...

Does anyone know what time it is? Does anyone care...? I live in the tropics, we don't need no stinking watches....

Honestly, congrats Tom, it does look very nice. I can't wear a watch, I destroy them.

I can't seem to wear watches either, but I like them, especially that one, Tom. Congrats also on your good investment timing, and I really agree with the alternate energy direction.


That has got to be great living in the tropics, crtreedude, so I sent you a picture of some typical Colorado weather to cool down by. Really, it's like this year round, nobody should ever move here.

I'm disappointed you waited six minutes after taking that photo to post it here

Congrats, Tom!

I have seen enough snow and ice to last two lifetimes! (lived in Western NY for much of my life) - the only ice I want to see is in my beverage...

A man with one watch always knows what time it is...a man with two watches is never quite sure.

Congratulations Tom.

Very nice!

But it reminds me of the watch my mom bought for me a few years ago. I lost it last year and I haven't had the guts to tell her yet.

Moral of the story: don't ever take that watch off!
