Making my occasional bump to keep my name at the top !!

Hope everyone is doing well. Life has been a little for me. Moved to Foley area, built another house, sold it and am building another. I see occasional names of people we have lost, sad to see old HS friends pass away. Especially ones who we graduated with. Time and distance comes between us all. We all should try to occasionally contact old HS friends.

Is your family getting larger or smaller ?

Mine is getting smaller & more spread out. Wife's family is the same way.

It is kinda sad. Espeically around the holidays, you remember when you had a house full !

On Thanksgiving we used to have 20+ in my house, this year it wil be 4.

Ok, Mayans said we are suppose to die on Dec. 21, 2012, who chose the August 11, 3114 B.C. date the calender begin counting ??

Are the Mayans the "experts" to know that the world will only last 5,126 years ? Is that lunar years like most ancient calenders or solar years ? OOH NOO,,what if the world began before Aug. 11th, 3114 BC ?
