First off I just wanted to let everyone know that I am safe.  I live in Dallas and all we had was some heavy rain bands and some wind. 


Please remember Texas and Louisiana in your prayers.


Along with my regular mod duties I will be bringing back the webcasts.  We have been doing them for years now and I want to know what you like and don't like.  I want to make this fun and informative for everyone.


I am looking to do the webcasts on Saturday in Nov with special webcasts as well.


Let me know your thoughts.  I hope everyone is well.

Glad you're safe sir. Can't wait for the Webcasts to get going. More we can schedule them ahead of time (know that's hard as the releases are not set) the better it is for me. That way I can plan to be around to join in on the fun.

Thanks for checking in!  


I always enjoy the webcasts, and look forward to them again this year.  We missed you last year, but we understand life gets in the way sometimes and you had a lot going on.  Shout out to JayMacFla for stepping in and helping out.

So glad to hear this. Missed it last year. Love the special webcast when ads break since Saturday webcasts are hard for me to attend.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.  I will do some tests webcasts and then have the full layout sometime in Oct.  


With BF not being what it use to be I dont want to do pointless webcasts.  I want to make them fun but also useful.  


I will be doing a focus on Target this year since I drank the kool aide and been shopping there and saving with cartwheel and the red card.  


Let me know more of your ideas.  I am working on some neat give aways.

Great to have Dev back for this year! Wasn't the same last year without hearing "bigjimslade... Black Friday Live... GottaDeal.com..."

I've been a following this forum for many years. Back when Bigjimslade was still reserving his port-a-john at best buy. It's not Black Friday until Bigjimslade says it's Black Friday.

Welcome back! It's not really Black Friday without BigJim's webcasts!

YES! Very glad you are safe, Dev. Actually had a friend evac to Dallas from Houston area (her house was safe and sustained only very minor damage, thankfully). Definitely enjoy the wenbcasts and no, last year was definitely NOT the same. Looking forward to hearing the famous words again... haha Saturdays can be tough on me, depending on actual time. I have committed to helping out with a teen group on Saturday evenings, but I look forward to joining whenever I can. Good times!

For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"


NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:
