Windows 8.1 is up and running. I like it. OK I know I am crazy but I have always tried to embrace change. Yes, it is taking me a few clicks to get things put where I want them but the access is much easier. I put up my newest Guess the puzzle using the new computer.
I think since I have been using a smart phone for years and the iPad since it was released I am use to this type of screen and navigation. I really don't see what all the hype is all about.
Nicely done, Lisa. I enjoyed your insights into the thought processes of Rick and Kate. I, too, feel that Rick wanted to take Cosmo home as a little "test" for Kate. I am fascinated by the differences between Rick and Kate. It is so awesome to watch them work their way through these differences. I've always felt that Rick was in love with Kate for quite a while before she got to that point with him. He has been willing to do whatever it takes to get "ALWAYS" with her. It was frustrating, at times, to watch the "dance". IMO, season 5 was the season of "Where are We headed?" They were a couple, but never really talked about anything major. This year, all that has changed. This is JMO, but when Rick proposed in S6-E1, the most important things he said to Kate were "I'm not proposing just to keep you here. I'm proposing because I can't imagine my life without you in it." He had Kate when he uttered those words. She already knew he loved her but by saying what he did he was offering forever(always). Since Kate said I will marry you, she was all in and one and done. It has just been so much fun this year to watch them tackle together whatever comes up. This is fast becoming my favorite season. Sorry, folks, didn't mean to go on like that but Castle is just an amazingly good show

Hi everyone! First and foremost, I'm sorry for letting everyone down and not being here to cheer you all on and especially for not being here to vote with you and tally up the votes each night. Life has been kicking my butt lately and I just haven't had the free time to do any of the above lately.
But let me say that I'm so proud of all of you for all of your efforts and for taking the reigns to keep each other motivated and push forward together. You have done me proud, everyone here at The 12th proud, and most of all you've done the entire Castle team proud with all of your loyal voting.
Because of all of your efforts, we finished this final stretch of voting with a massive 15,026 votes for each category, which brings our final tally to 80,681 votes for each category!! We may have been shy of our original goal this year but if you look at it realistically, with four categories this year we actually combined for a total of 322,724 individual votes, which was pretty close to what we brought in last year only with less people this year and more time spent having to switch between categories this year. So really, you guys did something very special here together and I couldn't be happier with the results.
Thank you all so very much for your efforts and now you can give those voting fingers a rest and we can look forward to seeing our Castle team get the awards they deserve next month when the PCAs air live January 8th!!
Thanks to everyone who cast any votes along the way. It all adds up and it all matters. Now we wait for the big night and hope to see our Castle peeps seated in the front row or in aisle seats close to the front because the winners need to be able to get out easily.
