I just knew this day was off to an excellent start! cat refused to go outside,(?) she's an outdoor cat except at night. i looked out window at 0600 ice every where. well good day to stay inside!!! made pot coffee, tried to sign up for warm up no ticket. thanks to Dan's advice in forum got that straight just a little late. then just after starting noon game some fool slid into my explorer luckily no major damage. while i was sitting out to check damage lost around 650 in chips  (Sitting out DOES not work) to the blinds, then had to beat ice of medium grill just to cook dinner!! Already had steaks thawed and no way I'm frying good steak. At least steaks came out perfect! So i figure rest of the month is gonna to be better.  i cant have much more complicated start than this one!!!:-x
