133. wow...I can;t believe my eyes this morning
made the front page?

is everyone as pissed off and ready to cash in their chips as I am?

I dreamed of the Ranch last night...maybe it is closer to being a reality than I thought.

gonna read through the rest of the replies since last night.... thanks folks for understanding the sentiment and taking the time to give your two cents. I sincerely hope somehow we can find our way through this mess...otherwise I guess the Ranch is gonna be pretty crowded! :rofl:
