Thank you so much.  I figured I should give something back since you have given me so much.  I can honestly say these are some of  the best times I have ever had.  Again, thanks to all.

Thanks for stepping up! Huzzah and welcome!
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
– Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer

Ol' Ralph is a good guy. Thanks for stepping up. We certainly need more help keeping an eye on Tim.
I just wanted to be left alone.
