    Hey, Phrelin are you going to start up with the ratings threads again now that the new season is well upon us? I really liked what you did last year, and I also got a lot out of your explanations and ruminations on the raw numbers.

    We have alread had our first cancellation of the new season, and you hadn't warned us to expect it! :)

    My favorite TV show cancellation story pertains to the 1979 sit-com, Makin' it, starring David Naughton. It got cancelled before its theme song even had time to drop out of the Top 40.

    Phrelin has been recruited into fulfilling a temporary government type job that has kept him away from DBSTalk. He was pretty stressed when I talked to him last.

    Well, since Supramom2000 and Nick PM'd me and now Church AV Guy started this thread, I guess I'll admit to temporarily "getting a life" of sorts.

    I was asked to serve as Interim Manager of my local community government where I had worked years ago.

    We kept our house here in the redwoods to retire to, which we did over ten years ago. I had tried to keep my head down. We were enjoying our retirement when I was asked. I had a patriotic community service moment and over my wife's expressed concerns about my well being, I said yes.

    Supramom2000 is correct about the stress. I'm not even used to getting up in the morning before 8:00 am, much less dealing with politics at breakfast.

    So, I won't be doing the ratings until Winter season. Right now I must do spreadsheets on money and other silly stuff instead. But my commitment supposedly ends December 31.

    If anyone here knows of someone with a background in local government management who is looking for a challenging career opportunity, have them check out the recruiting information at this web site.

    Mods, perhaps this thread should be moved to Forum Support.

    Well clearly, you are in charge of your own life, so don't take my post as putting pressure on you. Thanks for the explanation. I'll just repeat what I said above, I really liked the information you posted, and the format you used, AND the analysis you did on the data. I'll be looking forward to when you have the time to pick it up again.

    Lay off the stress, it isn't good for you or anyone.
