    Still in Norfolk eh? Did you get a DOD job when you got out and that's why you stayed? I never really enjoyed Norfolk much in the year I've been there. I prefered San Diego and Mayport (now here) over VA!

    I'm an active duty Navy guy with 9 in. What was your rate?

    It's a long story but basically I was born in Zephyrhills, put up for adoption and adopted by my family in St.Pete.

    Probably more than you wanted to know...
    Ah, right on. It's for the better that you got out of Zephyrhills, hahaha.

    I appreciate the welcomes. Although I'm sorry to hear that others had to suffer in the blue-haired capital of the world. I think one of the reasons why I joined the military was to get out of that town... but I currently sit in Tampa, and I do miss this place.

    Murray is an awesome character, and probably the best, but Kristen Schaal does a great job with Mel. She's so creepy, and that's one of my favorite words. I recommend to anyone who has not seen the show to go see it! You'll laugh. You'll cry. Ok, more laughing less crying.

    Welcome, Alex. I too love the Conchords. That exchange in your sig is great. Murray is by far my favorite part of that show.

    Good, more ex-Bradenton folks in the group. Welcome Alex.

    And Phil, too.... your posting kind of slipped under the radar there.

    I grew up loving the Nords, also. But are you allowed to like both the Habs and Nordiques?

    I love Halifax. We went out there twice when I was a kid. I got to go on the Bluenose (II I think - who knows).
