Welcome back, come on in and call Chris a b'tard. BTW If someone uses the words ELEPHANT or SUNSHINE the meaning of those two words has changed somewhat. All I can say is Michael Martin had a hand in the former and the later followed a spoonerific weather forecast involving country sunshine...
Welcome back - I've been around for the past year (plus a few months), so we probably don't know each other yet (except you happen to live or work in centrals switzerland).
Even the past year through CP has changed a lot, think about CodeProject.tv and Workspaces being launched to public.
I'm not gonna comment on who you are married to, but I'm sure here are some people willing to help if you want to dump him.
I will never again mention that Dalek Dave was the poster of the One Millionth Lounge Post, nor that it was complete drivel.
You married an accountant, came here and saw that accountant = Dalek Dave and you still stayed with him. Do you never learn?

In 2010, my job turned me into a manager and I haven't coded since. I'm trying to get back into it. I was doing ASP.Net web forms in VB. I know a ton has changed since. I've been looking at MVC in C# to get back into it. Any ideas on what else to learn?
Look at C# with webforms also, MVC isn't universally replacing webforms (or is it?).
Other than that, brush up on T-SQL and databases.
Those handful of things will make you viable for many jobs. You could look at an ORM too, but I would focus on understanding SQL first - because sometimes the ORM just cannot handle what you need, and you wlll dive back into SQL in those cases.
I have to work with Linq-to-Sql, which is basically dead. I have heard 'nhibernate' and 'entity framework' tossed around as buzzwords. I was really just trying to point out the need for having some sort of data driven skill set more than anything, which is why I would pursue something more generically useful over a framework that may be a passing fad.
I would just see what pops up the most on the job boards QA forums and head in that direction. All my jobs have required new skills, but built on some piece of an old skill. The generic skill sets are the ones that keep me employed over the fancy frameworks.
Maybe it was a Main Coone (or something like that) cat. Those can get quite large. Regarding the the dog, it depends mostly which pet was there first. If the cat was there first and scratched the dog while it still was a puppy, that dog will never again mess with the cat in his lifetime (and might develop a phobia against other cats as well).
The good thing about pessimism is, that you are always either right or pleasently surprised.
22lbs is not that huge - we had Beldin, who was 18lbs (UK) of muscle and venom. It wouldn't have taken much extra food to get another 4lb on him - and I don't think it would have slowed him down.
Some cats are just "big boned" and they are seriously strong for their size. I wouldn't put my hands into a cat fight (even between smallish cats) without motorcycle gloves on!

I think dry weights are the same. American fluid ounces are slightly different to ours, so even allowing for them getting the size of a pint wrong, 20 fl oz isn't quite the standard 568ml over there either. But I'm not aware of dry ounces being different.
