big 50

I just officially made it to the half century mark so now I feel I can participate in the discussions. I hear 50 is the new 30, at least that's what I want to believe!

10-3 aren't good numbers for Cub fans this morning!

Welcome to both of you. 50 is the new 30. Being 50 today is much better than being 30 a thousand years ago. For one thing, if you are 50 today, you are still alive. But if you were 30 a thousand years ago, you would be most certainly dead by now.

Keb Mo rocks! Well not really, he "mellows" but he's still one of my favorites, as is SRV.
