I hate these kinds of things too. They seem pretty unnecessary most of the time, but only for the ones who don't add anything really. In this case, I feel I do and I've received a lot of pm's and e-mails from a ton of you wondering why I've chosen to go this route. I guess you could call it an epiphany of sorts. I do get tired of the lameness at times but that comes with life in general aside from any message board "drama" or whatever you want to call it. You just get to a certain point in your life where you realize you're needed so much more in other areas of your life. I don't want to make this a dramatic kind of thing. I did want the opportunity to say goodbye to a few of you who have made my days a little better. I think we're all entitled to that. I also wanted to give you some insight as to why it's easy for me to walk away from this place with no regrets. I may have said to myself today, "I'm 33 years old. I argue with people I don't know or who are 15 years old. I'm married and have 3 kids. I'm in the process of building my business at a very crucial time in its infancy." It was a pretty easy decision.

So with that, I leave you this video to show you a glimpse of my life and the abundant joy that's in it....I hope you enjoy the clip.

    A beautiful family Cory. :)
    Peace to all of you.

    Cause I'm broken when I'm lonesome
    And I don't feel right when you're gone away

    Cory! :(

    Don't go! I mean I can see you've got some fairly compelling reasons to go, but just take a break. Please? :o

    I'll miss you my little racoon loving friend! ;)

    Take care of yourself and that lovely family of yours and do come back and visit us. :)
    NOPE!!!

    *~You're IT Bert!~*

    Hold on to the thread

  • Later man!

    hope you stop by occasionally - don't be a stranger dude!

    you make perfect sense, and though I spend my work days with very little to do for long periods of time...I totally understand your decision.


    but, don't forget to stop by every so often - you dont have to work up 30 posts a day or anything!
    IF YOU WANT A PLATE OF MY BEEF SWELLINGTON, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO PAY THE COVERCHARGE.
  • Bummer. I missed whatever the drama was.
    Anyway, Cory, I've always enjoyed reading your posts. I love your sense of humor and you will be missed.
    I really screwed that up. I really Schruted it.

    That was adorable, Cory! Thank you for sharing that video with us. :D My favorite part was when he wiped his mouth with the bib. Can he teach my daughter to do that? :p

    I totally understand why chatting on a message board isn't among your highest of priorities. ;) But, you'd better come visit us once in a while. You can't just abandon us after you and I made history a couple of weeks ago by having the first non-argumentative discussion about religion on the internet. :D

    Again...your kids are adorable, and seeing them makes me want more babies. I'm off to go poke holes in my & my husband's condoms now.

    Muhahahahaha...!

    You will be missed, but you can still check in from time to time without "living" on here. Thanks for the video - very nice family and best wishes. :)
