    At 15 years, I think our health insurance should include mandatory therapy!

    Maybe we need some more useful advice on the forum. It seems like it's just a bunch of us old timers out here that already know everything.

    Wait until you have been here around 10, then you wonder why you didn't drive you truck straight into a tree!

    So that's what I get to look forward to in a couple years. No wonder why they gave me a new truck this year. It'll have 100,000 when I crash into a tree.
