160 bpm, babycakes!

Today I went for my first prenatal doctor's visit. Everything checked out fine. We were able to hear the heartbeat (at 160 beats per minute). The doctor searched for a second heartbeat as well, but was unable to hear one. He was checking for two because of my advanced age (35!), and the fact that I have been having severe morning (all day, of course) sickness. He did, however, say that it is quite common not to be able to hear two heartbeats this early, even if there are two babies. God help me if it is twins! (Thankfully, I know he will!)
My due date is July 29, but it will likely be a C-section about 10-12 days earlier. My 2 year old's birthday is on July 25, so I am glad it will not fall then. I am 10 weeks along, but measuring at 14 weeks! No wonder things aren't fitting too well. . .

(The title for this post will likely only be understood by my parents and sister (and anyone else who lived in Indy in the 80s and quoted an hhgregg commercial as much as we did!))

The Russian sailor was leaning over a washing machine or something and was telling a woman, "fifty watts per channel, babycakes!" as he kissed her hand. Did we watch too much television as children?!!!

Monica, I see our family was not the only one who loved that commercial!! :)
Sister - you remembered it much more vividly than I did!
Dad - is it 100 or 50?!?! Such deep questions. . .

I am fairly certain it was 50. Don't you remember the Russians spot the HH Gregg store through the periscope of their submarine? Then they have to go and do reconnaissance? Does anyone else remember this? I wonder if I can find any old commercial archives...

Can anyone recommend the top Network Monitoring program for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central configuration management
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
