Welcome to the forum, goirish67. Glad you're here.

When I saw your handle, I began to hear a song in my head. Perhaps you're familiar with it, as well. It goes:

"Fight on . . . for USC . . . fight on, fight on . . . for USC"

And, while I'm hearing it, I'm seeing Reggie Bush pushing Matt Leinart into the ND end zone in the the waning seconds of the '05 game. Thanks for the memories, Irish!


PS: I'm a Colorado native myself, and I still remember driving through Dillon on the way to Vail - no not the Dillon you're thinking of. The original one that sits on the bottom of Dillon Reservoir. I still remember the fight to block the building of the dam, and the day they finally poured the "plug" that backed up the Blue River, drowning the town.

"Your vision becomes clear only when you look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks within, awakens."

Goirrish - When I saw the name I started thinking jewish and Irish for some reason - :-)

Welcome aboard - You touched a nerve when you mentioned the J24 - I am sailing in the Singapore Western Circuit Series over the next 3 weeks. I am having a blast but going too slow - LOL...

Aloha JK,
Welcome aboard! Good to have you here. I'm certain you'll be posting in the multihull section. J-24s are great little boats if you adjust the rig properly.
Kind regards,
