      It is indeed an awesome site, both for newcomers to the business, as well as us old ,( gentlemen?)
      You will find yourself reliving all your old nightmares, discovered when you were new to the business, with only the manual and intuition to be your guide. It is so great to be able to share knowledge gained thru the years with those just starting out, and to help them through some of the things we found out only through mistakes.
      What makes the site so strong, is the willingness of all to help others, with no holding back.
      It is good reading, every day, entertaining at times, with digressions, but always with good taste. Welcome to the site, with your experience.
      But dont hesitate to share it.
      Your friend in the business.
