I started realizing how much it sucks to only socialize with medical work colleagues all day. Thanks for bringing RM back on to diversify my life again!

When your legs get tired, run with your heart.

Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of your chance to be extraordinary.

thanks for all the awesome work.. I've been trying and trying and didn't realize that my direct bookmark to the forums didn't work, so I didn't know we were already back up until just now..oops.

I still can't access the new RM from work (I found myself in an alternate forum where only I was posting... it was a bit lonely - and creepy). But obviously, I don't have that problem from home.
