It's time for me to take a break.

My supporting subscription is up in a little while and I think it's time for me to back off from here for a while. I may be checking in now and again, this place is going to be a hard habit to break.

Good luck to you all, try and play nice with the kiddies..

An explanation is in order.

For me right now, money is tight and time has become very precious.
My time will be better spent building my business and when I have free time, if it is not spent with family, it is important to use it wisely for R/R.

For a time this place was a bit of an oasis for me, a nice little haven that I could come to for a pleasant distraction from reality. As of late it has fallen short in that department for me. Iím sure things will sort themselves out in time and this will once again become a place of recreation for me.

I feel I have made many friends here and I will miss daily interaction with you. Thanks to all of you for your friendship and acceptance.

Kev,
I share some insight from Vice President Hubert Humphry. He had a nice plaque on his desk. It was inscribed in Latin. Transcribed it read, "Don't Let the Bastards Grind You Down". It's been an inspiration for me.

Another inspiration was Dr. Wayne Dyer, author of "The Erroneous Zones".
In it he points out that only one person can make you angry, make you sad or make you happy. The person is you. You make the decision if someones actions upset you. I often tell myself using these two insights, "I'm not going to let the Bastards make me mad or ruin my day. It usually works for me.

Try it and stay a while longer. You know who the Bastards are. Ignore them.:yup:
I'm off the pulpit now.

I wonder if there is a correlation between bad vibes on CF and the season/weather?
When I was teaching, fall courses sucked because everyday the day gets shorter/draker/colder and my students got grumpier. Spring courses tended to be livelier, weather better/more light/almost summer.

Kev,

This is going to be a long one so get ready. :nyanya: First off, I understand your decision to take a sabbatical. In the last month or two the Forums have became a breeding ground for arguments and contempt. However not all of the fine members here resort to such behavior. Second, we want you stay because of the funny pics you have provided, valuable info posted, and the insightful commentary on many subjects.

Now, we also understand that the you have a life outside of the forums, and as such we understand that real life issues will require your undivided attention. In short, take as much time as needed but, don't forget about the gang at Cadillac forums. Drop by and say a few lines every now and then. Hopefully after your affairs are taken care of the forums will have refreshed the oasis :D and things will have settled back to normal.

In the meantime, do not let the atmosphere that has slowly crept in be a cause for dissapointment. Just as a bad storm weather cell moves in and is replaced by sunny and clear days so will this current tide. In closing, I hope all the business and personal affairs go accordingly to plan and come out exceeding your expectations. But until you return to us: Have fun,you and the family stay safe.

Your Friend,
Addison_II

Wow, a lot of my pals are to be absent from the site. I must say that I'm truly saddened by this. Not only have I gotten to know many of you but, visiting everyday was something I looked forward. You see since moving to MN I haven't made any new friends. The friends that I have made have come from here. So being here is in essence my hangout spot, the local pub, the lounge, and other friend meeting spots. So I understand but, don't be gone too long, while I'm not leaving this place ever, it will be sort of empty here. While it is rewarding to help others when I can, it's just puts the extra icing on the cake when I can talk to my pals. So, too all who are leaving, I'll ,miss you guys and see you soon. :crying:

Its nice to pop in here and be met with a warm, friendly glow. Unfortunately the glow has become empty and blue in recent times.

Loving you whether, whether times are good or bad, happy or sad

Why somebody, why people break up?
Oh, turn around and make up
I just can't see
You'd never do that to me (Would you, baby?)
So to be around you is all I see

They will. Everbody will be fine if we pay no attention to it trust me it will go away. I will not discuss the fighting anymore. In my eyes it has to end now so it no longer exsist. I will not encourage it by discussing it firther it just opens the door for more fighting. We have great friendships here and they will remain. Kev has had other stuff going on for a while he will be back. He said it himself some time away to focas on priorites. It's Julie by the way. Hey guess what? I have a game to test all your minds. Here it is.

Fw: Know it All's Test





This is a quiz for people who know everything! I found out in a hurry that I didn't. These are not trick questions. They are straight questions with straight answers.

Know It All's Test: no picking please...

1. Name the one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants knows the score or the leader until the contest ends.

2. What famous North American landmark is constantly moving backward?

3. Of all vegetables, only two can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons. All other vegetables must be replanted every year. What are the only two perennial vegetables?

4. Name the only sport in which the ball is always in possession of the team on defense, and the offensive team can score without touching the ball?

5. What fruit has its seeds on the outside?

6. In many liquor stores, you can buy pear brandy, with a real pear inside the bottle. The pear is whole and ripe, and the bottle is genuine; it hasn't been cut in any way. How did the pear get inside the bottle?

7. Only three words in standard English begin with the letters "dw" and they are all common words. Name two of them.

8. There are 14 punctuation marks in English grammar. Can you name at least half of them?

9. Where are the lakes that are referred to in the Los AngelesLakers?

10. There are 7 ways a baseball player can legally reach first base without getting a hit. Taking a base on balls (a walk) is one way. Name the other 6.

11. Name the only vegetable or fruit that is never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form except fresh.

12. Name 6 or more things that you can wear on your feet beginning with the letter "S."

Good Luck. I will post the answers when you all give up.

I dunno what the hell happened over this last month, things have went down hill....funny this is around the time i said i wasnt getting a caddilac but a Charger....could be my fault, i've upset the Cadillac gods. lol.

1. The one sport in which neither the spectators nor the participants know the score or the leader until the contest ends . . boxing.

2. North American landmark constantly moving backward . . . Niagara Falls (The rim is worn down about two and a half feet each year because of the millions of gallons of water that rush over it every minute.)

3. Only two vegetables that can live to produce on their own for several growing seasons . . . asparagus and rhubarb.

4. The only sport in which the ball is always in possession of the team on defense, and the offensive team can score without touching the ball . . . baseball.

5. The fruit with its seeds on the outside . . . strawberry.

6. How did the pear get inside the brandy bottle? It grew inside the bottle. (The bottles are placed over pear buds when they are small, and are wired in place on the tree. The bottle is left in place for the entire growing season. When the pears are ripe, they are snipped off at the stems.)

7. Three English words beginning with "dw" . . . dwarf, dwell, and dwindle.

8. Fourteen punctuation marks in English grammar . . . period, comma, colon, semicolon, dash, hyphen, apostrophe, question mark, exclamation point, quotation marks, brackets, parenthesis, braces, and ellipses.

9. The original lakes referred to in Lakers . . . in Minnesota. (The team was originally known as the Minneapolis Lakers, and kept the name when they moved west.) I live here :D Minneapolis translated means water city and we have so many lake here hence lakers.

10. Seven ways a baseball player can legally reach first base without getting a hit . . . taking a base on balls (a walk) ,batter hit by a pitch, passed ball, catcher interference, catcher drops third strike, fielder's choice, and being designated as a pinch-runner.

11. The only vegetable or fruit never sold frozen, canned, processed, cooked, or in any other form but fresh is lettuce.

12. Six or more things you can wear on your feet beginning with a S are shoes, socks, sandals, sneakers, slippers, skis, skates, snowshoes, stockings, stilts.

I hope things settle down for you, and I hope you'll find a few spare minutes every now and then to check in and let us know how you're doing. I know exactly what you're going through and I've had to cut back a little myself.
