Tim, thanks for what you do for my cardio system. I can't tell you how many miles I have walked with the VAP on my MP3 player. No ipod yet but it works.
I hope neighbors don't think I am nuts, laughing out loud at some of the stuff Rob says.

You might be onto something there. I need to start doing the same thing. Need to get *the look* in shape for our live appearences! Of course that will have to be at least two years ofter the aluminum braces come off .

Thanks for the comments guys. Appreciate it!

I heard that too. It wasn't me! Lets see if we can get the guilty party to fess up!

My guess would be it starts with a C and ends with an N....

Jingle cha ching. I'm headed to Vegas tomorrow for a short trip to see George Straight and Ronnie Milsap and didn't listen to the VAP show yet but will on the Airplane. Maybe it will give me good luck to hear all that money in his pocket. Do you split aces?

Tim--Do I see a video podcast in your future? It would mean Rob would have to comb his hair.

I'm not positive, but I do pay Colin in change. Maybe that was him counting all my SOTR money$$$$$.
