    Default Be safe and relax y'all...

    I am off on vacation, so don't forget to breathe once in a while while waiting for the awards to come out. I don't know what my email/Internet situation will be until I get back in 3 weeks, so hopefully the awards come out by then. I'm going to try and keep an eye on the Inbox, but since they want $16 a minute to do a ship to shore phone call I don't see me in the Internet Cafe for very long, if I even stop at all. I mean, that's 3 hands of Blackjack a minute there. Priorities, priorities.

    We're taking the excursion to Lapland and Santa's Village in Finland, so while I'm there I'll be sure to ask Santa if he can swing by DC and liberate the awards for everyone.

    Good luck & Stay Safe - Brian

    Cool Enjoy Your Vacation!

    The information that has been passed along here has been super. To BC79er, Dixie and KTB, you guys (and gal) deserve some re-charge time. While I'm just starting to post, I did my share of lurking and reading the threads and I must attribute a big part of our receiving our 10 questions (back in May!) to what I learned here. A tip of the old Leather to each of you.
    Being a hero isn't about being tough. It's about making tough choices. It's about sacrifice.

    Just think...if Brian could take the house on one hand, then we wouldn't have to sit around and wait for our 10 questions; he could give it to us straight out!!!

    Enjoy the summer, folks. Denials probably won't be here until Labor Day (a guess) so kick back and forget about it for a while.

    Just tell the auditors you will not be able to participate until you sign off on you NOAA.....(Notice of audit availability). I think that's language they understand...

    LOL...you tell 'em, 7...it's what I have been trying to say. It's just dangling there, out of reach. ALthough, I am starting to say 'Hurry Up' a bit more than a week ago, JUST so my phone will quit ringing every Friday morning from the Chief's w/ NO INTERNET going "Did ya hear anything yet?"...LOL. That's gotten a bit old over the past 4 weeks now...in fact, my husband was a bit perturbed with it on the Friday while we were at the beach and it rang several times! Everyone really expected something that week (following the 4th)

    Default If ...

    If I could just get the questions or 1199 confirmation, I wouldn't care when we were announced. Getting those two would be good enough for me to go barhopping in celebration. Keeping fingers crossed for some quick (selfishly) action.

    I attended the Fire and EMS Expo in Pittsburgh last week, and will be attending the Baltimore show next week. It would be nice to have that opportunities to shop at a show with allot of competition to get the most out of the award. It would be an asset to have notification prier to these events.
