I think you should name the baby "Bubber" if it's a boy, and "BC_Cheque" if it's a girl.

It's a boy.  How about Bush Cheney ?

Only if you want him to get beat up at school.

I know some people here who just had a baby boy and named him Declan.  Seems like a nice name.

It just made the suggestion list.  Also I am a fan of Declan McManus.

I think "Coonlight" would be a lovely name for a child.

Great news.  Joan went for it, although she cooled off quickly.  So far it's our #1.  Goddess may have named my child !  ???

Yeah.  Soooooo bored right now.  I am done here at end of June and just waiting for some irons in the fire on a new job.

Can't facebook at work so I am hitting 'refresh' on the old politics sites and listening to news radio :(

Hey speaking of personal stuff, anybody else out there a sailboat freak? I got hooked many years ago when I was invited down to the Bahamas during a time off from work in mid winter, and what a lovely change to go from Labrador snow banks to Caribbean waves. (water and heat) The friend of the friend who invited me who owned the boat also owned a yacht dealership on the East Coast. Next thing I know I'm making a deal to buy a boat of my own. Hoping there are boat stories out there.

My dad-in-law is a sailing nut on the Bay of Quinte.  I never saw the appeal, but going out with him is just fantastic fun.  Very special way to relax but a little expensive.  He shares a boat with 3 others I think.

Yes they can be expensive and I didn't have the dough for a fancy ass big boat but I was able to afford a small sloop which could sleep 6 but most of the time there was just the two of us aboard. That yacht dealership I mentioned was just north of Boston and I had a bee in my bonnet that I was going to sail this thing back to that same dock in Nassau where I had first ever set foot on a sailboat. Took us a while but we finally got there. I was in a job where I could work 7 days a week and stack up my vacation time and take it all at once and so we might have a couple of months to inch our way down the US east coast and then tie up. It was a more interesting way to integrate with the country than through hotels and airports.

Oh yes, going by the shoreline is fascinating.  It's really a great thing.

Hard to afford for a working man :(

Well, speaking of work.  It looks like the bank wants to hire me full time.  Pay will be something like $30K-$40K less than now but there is potential for bonus and the team seems amazing.  Also... there is this little parental leave thing I would be taking up in the next few months.

I had to ask the HR person about that today.  I hope that it doesn't scuttle my offer.  I think I could sue them though ?  Right ?   ???
