Congratulations Kelvin !!
I assume you were excited when you updated your bio on QRZ.com. It's interesting that my spell checker didn't flag initially.
"... upgraded to General calss in May 2012."
Or, maybe you really did mean "calss". The Urban Dictionary had to following for that spelling.
Acronym for "cut a long story short." Notice the irony: It actually shortens the phrase used to shorten an otherwise long story.
Guy: So yeah, she and I were dating, but to CALSS, we broke up because she likes Justin Bieber.
Girl: Hmm, that makes sense. Wait, what's "CALSS"?
Guy: "cut a long story short."
Girl: OMG, that acronym is awesome in so many levels! Take me home with you!

In my area, it seems that every pickup truck or SUV comes with one or more dogs. It's so common that I can only assume that the dog(s) must come with the vehicle. So logic tells me that, if you want to keep the truck for a long time, go for the multi-dog option. Otherwise, if the dog dies, you have to buy a new truck. I have five dogs (4 dogs as of 4/4/2013, RIP Katie), so I'm set for a few years.
That AG looks pretty good.
In 1992 I passed my Technician and General written tests, but never developed my CW skills to 13 WPM. Between my demanding job and my lack of skill with a key, I lost interest after the last sunspot cycle. Well, I recently retired, blew the dust of of my equipment and with some 10 meter activity over the past few months regained my interest. I took the General exam tonight and passed. For now, I'm known as KB5UBI / AG.
