I just wanted to tell you all that I am very pleased with the group of people that we have here. You've all been very helpful and supportive of each other and it makes me feel like we're all part of a family here.

I think that we've all done a great job of avoiding potentially explosive topics and succumbing to the usual arguments that can divide any group or family. I'm confident that we can continue to bond and grow as long as we all remember why we're here and that sometimes we may have to choose our words carefully to not offend others and equally as important, not be quick to take offense.

Lets keep it going!

Bill,

This web site is a valuable resource we would all miss. I've learned much.

In my 28 yrs. in the trade I've learned Electricians are a proud group of Professionals. We don't like to be wrong. It's a good thing to be able to share ideas with other people at this message board.

The term "Uncle Rojosy" sounds quite silly!

Aw, shucks.... [Linked Image]

You make a good point Bill. Without the benefit of tone of voice, facial expressions, etc. written colloquial English could be misinterpreted sometimes.

I guess everyone here is just pretty well adusted and can take a bit of good-natured ribbing.

It is great to see such an intelligent bunch not duking it out over petty differences. I am out numbered, and out ranked for sure here but I am glad I have a "safe" place to go and learn something new.
It would be nice to actually meet some of you people in person, just to say hi and maybe shake a calloused hand or two.
Luv Ya Man.........

Bill:

Well spoken! I too, enjoy this board very much and have learned from the many replies and posts.

I support the entire process here and hope that we can all meet on common ground someday.

I can travel anywhere and would enjoy the trip.

How about Las Vegas? or maybe NYC?

Any suggestions?

Joe
