Remember every word. Both of them

Yep. Big discussions involving how to get to the next level, how to get to Bonneville, etc.

Part of trying to finance this will be a crowd source fund request to hopefully get us what we need and where we need to go.

I am off to oz in March and so hopefully there will be news to announce after speed week.

"You talk like a DJ"

I did a few years of radio announcing in my former life -- and developed a fine way of talking.  I wasn't a "Ron Radio" - the announcer that loves his voice and makes sure that the listeners know it, but a plain-talking public radio announcer.  It left me with a life-long sound, though -- to the point that very often when I answer the phone I'll say my hello -- and the caller will stay silent, thinking what he's heard is the message on an answering machine.  It's a minor pain -- but has advantages.  When I see via caller ID that it's someone with whom I don't want to talk I'll go into the answering machine talk -- "Hi.  This is Jon/Slim, and I can't take your call now.  (etc).  Then I go
"beeeeep" and they leave a message.

That's talking like a DJ. :-D

No Hijack intended but we have a DJ on our local station and she's terrible.
It's a community station so I don't think she'll be fired.
It's all "Um, giggle, Um, giggle. It goes on for three hours daily.
I've complained to no avail.
Funny thing is that her name is "Roxy Blows".
I'd love one of you guys to prank her and offer her a job in Barrow, Alaska. :-D
She's driving me nuts. This is a really dumb woman.
