          It was a combination of things.
          1. I hate moving
          2. My unit stayed home during Desert Storm (but I met my wife during that period) and I didn't like my chances of advancement given 70% of the officers in my branch now had combat experience.
          3. When they offered to let people out early as I was approaching the end of my 3rd year (my obligation was 5), I looked ahead and could only come up with nine years of "good jobs" out of the next 17. In retrospect, that number was probably low but it is what it is.
          4. Being raised in California, my laid-back vibe didn't always play well with my subordinates or superiors
          5. I ended up in a unit that wasn't that great and fell well short of my expectations. Given my lack of a generally positive experience in the Army, I decided it was a good time for a career change.

          I haven't eaten Korean food in Denver in years. There were a couple good places in Aurora but I'm not sure that either is still in business. Given Aurora has half of Colorado's Korean population, you can bet that the best Korean food would be out that way.

            I thought Diamonds are Forever was classic but Daniel Craig in Casino Royale was closer to the version in the books. In order, I'd probably rank them
            1. Craig
            2. Connery
            3. Dalton
            4. Brosnan
            5. Lazenby

                  you must be one of the only people who would rate timothy dalton as one of the top 3 bonds, lol.

                  ill ask all the usual questions:

                  when did you 1st pick up a guitar, was it instant love, and was there one song in particular that made you think, "I have to learn how to do that"

                        Not a big fan of beer in general and find most micros to be overly hopped. If pressed, some of the root beers done by the microbreweries would get my nod.

                        Despite my relative abundance of fun music toys, I do generally view them as tools that help me make the music that's in my head. The "best" gear is whatever enables you do achieve your musical vision whether it's booteek or bargain basement.

                        Seriously, probably something along the lines of
                        • People should be treated with respect until they show they don't deserve it. People who don't deserve it are better left ignored.
                        • A man's word is his bond
                        • Obligations to family trump most anything else
                        • I'd rather be disliked for being true to my beliefs than be a popular fraud

                        They provided structure and love.

                        They didn't take much interest in my interests. For example, in three years of running track, they never came to see me run.

                        Last weekend, I hooked it up to my Boss looper. There were times where the recorded tone stunned me to the point where I'd just stop and listen to it. The amp tones in the thing are phenomenal and I've only started scratching the surface with its FX.

                        I loved guitar before I ever picked one up. I remember when I was six, putting my violin in my lap and strumming it pretending I was playing guitar. Didn't actually get a guitar 'til my 14th birthday but I was hooked long before that.

                          I'm more or less on sabbatical from TGP. Some of the stuff going on there has made it not so fun for me. I'm going through a phase where a lot of ad hominem attacks bring me way down so I'm avoiding them. I've recently checked out of an email discussion group for much the same reason.

                          I'd buy a couple more guitars, travel more, and coach youth football in my free time.

                              Probably because I was lying low when it started.
