Well Happy B-day mtryanks12. Seems you are putting your new laptop to work lately!

As for a random fact...um, well, here goes.

McKinney, TX was the fastest growing city in the US last year. Jumping from like 30,000 to over 80,000. Pretty steep jump there.

I don't have much trouble with that one...it's the word "l'il" that gives me a headache. :~( I mean, seriously...have you ever tried to say "l'il?" It either comes out as "little" or "llll." Pain in the butt! :-[
