    I want to take a moment here to thank all of you great RJers that voted for me for Man Of The Day on Sunday. Came up a little short, however, I was beaten by a guy that has a great smile, a fantastic personality and someone who has a much better and muscular body than me, gymguy1.

    Some of you said this is a "popularity contest," and in general made some less than positive remarks about this. I think it is interesting and highlights those that reach out to others, demonstrate a good, positive attitude, and might not be afraid to laugh at themselves from time to time.

    I have been a member for a short time and stumbled into here in early July. What I have enjoyed most is learing about becoming thinner and in a little better shape, but what I have enjoyed most is learning from all of you and becoming inspired by your stories, what makes you tick and what has made you successful in business and in your relationships. That is worth the "price of admission" right there.

    For me, I felt especially honored in receiving 30 votes from the members. You see, I'm not the handsomest guy on the planet, my body looks like the "before" pictures and my age has been an issue with a few members. In fact, one member remarked about my being 56 years old and said, "You're old. You should be dead by now."

    Well, I don't know how long I have here, however, I don't feel my age at all. In fact, several of those that voted for me are younger than 25. A special thank you to those guys too.

    I also am grateful and humbled by the fact that many of the most respected RJers, in terms of their professionalism and demeanor also were in my corner. A heartfelt thank you for your respect and confidence in me as well.

    To close, I appreciate your interest and votes. Say hello to me sometime and I will see you in the forums.
