You are a smart man, Mark! I would get a lot more modeling done if I would turn the TV off, too. I am a huge Detroit Tigers fan, and have to watch all the games. I also like the Lions, and watch football along with trying to keep up with the NASCAR stuff.
The History Channel yields some more shows that I am more or less hooked on as well! Along with "Swamp People", I have to watch "American Pickers", "Pawn Stars", and the new series "Counting Cars" which is very cool. And of course when the Barrett-Jackson auctions are on, I can sit for hours and watch that. Yep, I definitely would get more done if I left the darn tube alone! LOL!
I think you are right about this forum growing on it's own. Sometimes these things take off in a blaze, and other times they grow slowly. I think you'll be just fine with it though. Either way, I too will do what I can to help promote and support it, and will be here with you for the long haul.
