06 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh come on. You mean Russia told you nothing about the joint military exercises scheduled for the fall? It must be the ridiculous Russian postal system. A tiger must have taken the mailman. Moscow knows all about it folks. Nothing to see here, false alarm. Move along.
07 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Velcome to Russia everybody! Have a nice stay......when are you leaving? :P
12 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: Sorry for the silence; wife's birthday was yesterday and I spoiled her w/ my time... or tortured depending upon your perspective.
16 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry, can I request a pause for the next day and a half? We can insider on Sunday, but I am really busy this weekend, and I will not be able to communicate much. Please and thank you!
17 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: I realize I may have been a bit late on the pause. Sorry, I've been quite busy this weekend myself :D
19 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh you're fine. Does me UN pausing at midnight central time work for everybody?
19 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: wow... I didn't expect the unpause so quickly. I should have waited until Monday morning.... stupid college hoops and the Madness of March.
19 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: That's what I get for being proactive:P
20 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Sorry, Italy. I apologize! I would have waited longer had I known it would be a problem!
20 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Not at all my good man. I neglected to check in until late... I got side tracked w/ College Hoops:)
20 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: yeah, it is distracting for me as well, to say the least.
21 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: i guess this is goodbye ;( good luck to everyone!
21 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: :-(
21 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: gg Russia.
21 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: what will you be building this time?
21 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: oops
21 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: o_O
26 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Bad Turkey, attacking so many people at once. Have you been taught no manners? No biscuit for you.
26 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Omg...
26 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: ;)
29 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Sorry for that embarassing show, I could have sworn I had my orders in... but I can honestly say nothing would have changed. I feel terrible about this...
29 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: lol... did everyone get spooked? that's the fastest I've seen initial orders placed since the game started. =P
29 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: stop breaking the dmz in Pie =)
31 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: Pie just wasn't enough, huh??? Tuscany? Really?
31 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: The army got lost on it's way to Venice. I blame German paratroopers for changing the signposts ;)
31 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: What? Aren't the vineyards of Tuscany open for tourism?
31 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: The French merely wish to visit your Pope and pray. Keep the faith, Italy.
31 Mar 12 UTC Autumn, 1906: it's difficult when you lose all your friends :(
04 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Please forgive minimal comm. DaughteCars in ER for concussion. Limited access and cell use. Will be on more 2morrow
04 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Ah, sorry to hear that. I hope it's nothing too bad.
04 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Concussions can be really uncomfortable, ER sounds serious. I hope she feel better soon.
04 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: *feels
04 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: wish that nothing everything is ok.
04 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Holy shit... this is almost too funny.
04 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Ok... first... Lex is ok; they did a CAT scan (as this is the third concussion in 2 years) and all appears well. Just needs to take things easy for the next 5 days. She's ticked, as she's a wee bit competitive and hates the idea of sitting out the next game. It was bad luck, got whacked in the head w/ a lacross stick. She was too stubborn to stay off the field and played while feeling nauseous and a bit dizzy. Coupled w/ the normal hormones of a 17 year old female, it made for an interesting (and long) evening.

Secondly... no I haven't lost my marbles.. I tried to communicate orders through my 13 year old son, who is familiar w/ the game, but there were obviously some things lost in translation. I will attempt to repair some things this evening when I get home from work.. I don't know whether to laugh or cry yet.
04 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: what a story. Having a 2y old child, I wonder how shes going to be when shes 17 :) Again, hope everything is ok.
04 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: I've got three. 17 year old daughter, 13 year old son and 8 year old daughter. The time passes very quickly. The eldest switched from gymnastics to field hockey/lacross in HS, the middle (and only boy) chose fencing as his sport and the youngest loves dance. All unique, but great kids - though the boy child may have gotten himself grounded for his involvement in my current dilemma here (j/k.. but still... c'mon Zane!!)

Sorry for the tangents... less thought involved than diploming at the moment:)
05 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: I have two kids 17 and 5. The 17 year old got very sick when he was 12 and spent a year in hospital having chemo etc. He recovered just fine though and is now all clear. Sometimes life throws you a bad set of dice but more often than not it comes out ok.
05 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm still a senior in college, which makes me feel very small. Please don't consider me rude if I attack any of you :-D
05 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1907: Chemotherapy at 12 is terrible. Sometimes I consider myself extremely lucky to have not even broken a bone so far, or been very sick, despite having done a bit, especially considering all the crazy stuff so many other people go through.
05 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: My heart goes out to you France. Worst scare we had was when zane was 9. He seized for 13 straight hours. They couldnt break it even when he was heavily drugged for a spinal tap. It was viral meningitis. He finally broke it at 3a the next morning and his disoriented 'where am I' was the greatest sound on earth. A week later it was as if it never happened. If I ever have millions to donate, UH will get a nice gift.
06 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Well, viral meningitis is quite serious, as chemo btw. well, I guess that's a lesson to learn when you are a young father, that things can get serious. Fortunately, so far, my little girl (15months) only had a little cold :)
06 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Congratulations.... if she doesn't have you already wrapped around her finger, give her another hour or so:)
08 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: No access today (or just enough to send this). Please take as much time as you'd like this phase:)
09 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1908: anw, I was defeated. Wanted to say good game to all.
09 Apr 12 UTC Spring, 1908: Yeahp, good game everybody!
