hey again everyone, I felt with Bren back in the fold I'd try to sneak back in as well....can never have enough 'tobans on the forum! I have truly hated being out of the loop, but it's been a tough year+: leaving my job of 10 years to take over the family farm, selling a house, building a house, having a baby on the way, moving twice, surviving one of those "worst nightmare" situations, joining just about every local volunteer committee in town (that's what happens to the new guy in a small town), and on and on.....but it's mostly been a lot of fun and I hope I'm able to pop in here a little more often.

I have had a chance to skim through more than 100K unread posts and I thought I'd share a very few of my observations:
-You are all certifiable....but insanely funny
-I must add one more great thing about Canada - Kraft Dinner
-a medusa murse? I thought I was gutsy wearing a pink shirt! \:\) (jk of course CV)
-Rick in your search for a good ole fashioned country band - try Elliot Brood
-Zunior is a helluva good website, but they still don't have anything by Negative Orange \:\)
-I'm happy i'm not the only one who thinks of women's hygiene products when i hear about the latest apple product
-I've missed a lot of birthdays, so happy belated everyone!

Welcome back! I still think of you whenever one of your tracks from the disc exchange comes up on random play. Seems like 10 years ago now. \:\)

Glad to hear you persevered through all those tough changes.

Nice to see another person pop back in, even if it's in a pink shirt. Sounds like you've had quite a lot going on. Happy Birthday to you, too, whenever yours was.

Scott, another welcome back. Yes, it does sound as if you've been a bit busy; probably haven't had a chance to take in the Saskatoon Symphony recently? Don't know what might be available in your new location.

Beam me up, Scotty!

We seriously have to meet up again sometime... maybe when it's fun and not treacherous to drive.

Family farm was grain mostly, wasn't it?

Well thanks for all the welcomes! That's what I really love about this place - you can disappear for a year and a half and then slide right back in like you never left, same old great group of people!

John, no unfortunately I haven't had a chance to check out the Saskatoon Symphony since I left and now that ranks up there on my list of regrets: that I neglected to take full advantage of my close proximity....I probably could have traded a night or two at the symphony for my 2 year quest to eat at every Asian restaurant in the city (there were over 70)! \:\) But it wouldn't be the same story if I had said every restaurant...but two.

Bren, absolutely we'll have to get together again. I'll fire you a PM some day because it appear as though I'll be travelling more frequently to Winnipeg during the month of February (my gf has a contract working for a broadcaster during the Olympics and will be working out of Wpg). Also you are correct, we are primarily "dirt" farmers - thankfully too - it's been a tough year for cattle & hog producers. I actually thought if anyone was interested, I would post some pics/writeup about what goes on at our fairly typical farm...might give a few some insight into where there food is coming.

Again thanks for all the well-wishes and welcome-backs!
Scott
