    This is one of the best things I have read all day.

    Congratulations on the new additions and the new position!

    Chicago is a great city and I'm sure you and your expanding family will enjoy living there.

    Sounds like the new job will be a great move as well!

    I'm sure you can't wait to get started.

    Good things happen to good people. It's nice to see that reaffirmed.

    Great to hear it, Globe.

    You probably already know this, but don't take any of the Gary, Indiana exits and you'll be fine.

    They are pretty hard to miss as you can smell them miles away.

    I used to be in a barbershop quartet in Skokie, Illinois. The baritone was this guy named Kip Diskin, big fat guy, I mean, like, orca fat. He was so stressed in the morning ...

    It really doesn't smell much of anything these days, maybe because most of the odor-producing industries have shut down. Now, Terre Haute on the other end...[​IMG]

    Congrats GT.

    If work is in Skokie, I'd encourage you to look at Evanston as a location if you haven't already found a place where you want to live.

    What fantastic news! Mazel tov on the twins and the job! You and your wife must be ecstatic.

    I'd really look at living in Evanston. It's much more interesting than Des Plaines.

    Evanston is wonderful.

    I'll buy you lunch when I roll in for a Big Ten football weekend.

    Evanston is fantastic. Housing prices and property taxes will be higher, but I think it's worth it.
