DerJuan Gambrell and Dominic Clarke I remember them always being in trouble. Once Urban came in they were released from scholarship.

If words alone could make this all go away, I would give you all of the words that I have. 

I will pray hard for you and your family. Thank you for your service to this great Country.

I do watch it. Congratulations to your brother. That is huge national exposure for him.

Scouts and draft gurus talk about Hackenburg being a first round draft pick based solely on the intangibles because they surely can't be basing it on play. I would take Cardale over him any day of the week. 

I really have to believe this team will improve each week and by the end of the season we will be wondering why we were ever worried. Much like last year.....and the year before that.

1 Very spoiled Shihtzu named Sam. He is the most amazing lovable dog I've ever had.

2 rescue cats 

a saltwater aquarium. This is my second go around with saltwater and am ready to give it up. I've had this one about 7 years now and it's just so much work and not cheap! Don't know what I was thinking. Lol

Mike, I can totally relate to what you are going through. Everything you are feeling is completely normal. I went through a very similar thing about 10 years ago. I had worked for the same company for 20 years and like you, thought I would probably retire from there. 

They decided they would outsource my department. They did give us almost a year notice however. The kicker was though that you had to stay until the very end of that year in order to keep your severance package. We also had the option to re apply for the job we already had but with the contract company who was replacing us. 

In my case, I opted out and stayed the year needed to get my severance. After that I collected my unemployment and spent some much needed time with my son in his last years of high school before going off to OSU for college. In my case the insurance was not a deciding factor because my husband carried us on his insurance. That is something you will need to consider. The hardest part is having to start over. Like you, I had nearly 6 weeks of vacation plus personal time and 11 holiday's. Starting over with 2 weeks sucks!!

I have now been at my current place of employment for almost 10 years and we were recently told that we may get outsourced. (Life in the I.T world) we are supposed to hear before Christmas. I'm not sure what I will do this time around. Please let me know if I can do anything at all to help. Keep us updated

I would throw my vote for Melt. Started up here in Lakewood, Ohio and now have 6 locations. There is one in Eason and one in Short North.  Also, really enjoy Schmidt's in German Village.

I remember when Zeke got Chase. He is a wolf hybrid. I am praying someone didn't steal him for dog fighting because that would break my heart. Praying for a safe and fast return. Pretty sure he is in Cbus. His dad Stacy has an apartment in Cbus and that's where he taken from the first time.

I had just had surgery the day before so I was home. I live about 3 miles from the CLE airport and the silence of dead airspace was deafening. I immediately went and picked my son up from school to have him close to me. Truly the most horrifying day of my life.

God Bless any and all on that tragic day

+1 For the Jersey Mikes. Love that place. There is this place called Mashiso that we frequent often. It's Asian fusion and I always describe it as like a Asian Chipotle.

Of the new guys, I really think Danny Shelton will be my new favorite. So far he's lived up to everything they've been saying about him.

I really don't think it will be divisive Saturday. I used to frequent another forum (non sports) and they did something similar. Everyone had access to everything and those that could or wanted to could donate to the site every year for the same reason 11W has listed. The only perks to paid members was slightly more DM msgs but it never ever caused an issue between donating members and those that could not.

Same here. I tried on my phone first. Galaxy Note 4. Portrait or Landscape did not matter. It would not let me type most of the numbers then it would type a number and the next would delete the one before it. Very strange. Got it done on the laptop with no problems though.

I have all but quit listening to WKNR. As BB stated, they are pretty much one big talking advertisement anymore and basically, Bruce Hooley is a tool. I usually try to catch Dustin Fox on 92.3 The Fan if I'm listening to sports talk radio.

What, no Windows ME? :-)  I think I have had all of the versions including NT at some point or other. I have a spare HD I might pop in and give 10 a shot on that.
