I know I made the responsible, logical decision in staying home because I am still a little under the weather, but seeing the video almost makes me wish I had decided to push my luck. :-D

Thanks for sharing, Jack.

I know Bill (the cat) and I agree with you....but

Think how strong you'll be for MOTD in 2010. And, You'll FEEL good. Makes for better driving and less chance for "going off the dragon" while your sneezing or coughing!

Keep getting better.
