Updating the look of the site

Spent some time today updating the looks of the main site.  Some links and things still need to be tweaked and I’m not quite done yet.  But hopefully everything will be working well in a day or two more.

Heading Home

Well, after working out of state for over a year I’m finally heading home and back to Michigan.  For those who listen to the podcast on a regular basis, you already know that I have found a new job back in my home state.  It’s been a long haul, and I have to say doing the podcast and visiting with my friends on the forum each day helped me get through it without going completely crazy – hehe.  Anyway, I just want to thank everyone for the support this past year or so – you all have been great and have really supported me, the site, and the podcast.  I’m greatly looking forward to being back in my “Rico-Cave” and doing podcasts there, covering collectibles, upcoming Trek XII movie news and so on.  As they say, “There’s no place like home!”
