    Thumbs up Regarding this Message Board

    I'm pretty much a veteran of usenet and messageboards for the last 7 years. I work from home so it's worked out well.

    Terry's board is a good example of how really effective an internet MB can be.
    I along with others have saved significant money and time by using the pros experience.
    Especially considering being steered away from questionable products.

    As nice a guy as my plumber is...he is really only interested in having long
    comprehensive conversations with me when he is "on the clock" which I understand.

    This board is unique in that quite a few pros post here.....and some amateur advice can be good.

    A couple months ago I thought that Toto was Dorothy's little rat faced dog in the Wizard of Oz. Now I know better....and own one.
    ...the Aquia.....not the little rat faced dog.

    Mike - I am with you a hundred percent. I found this forum about 4 months ago, and in this short time the plumbing education I've received has been invaluable. The people here are extremely knowledgeable and don't mind sharing this knowledge with amateur DIYers like me. Many thanks to everyone for this great forum!!!

    I couldn't agree more. Great site, and very generous of all, especially the pros, who freely give their time and expertise.

    Anyone know if we can get this board an award? I think it's that good...and trust me I have been a r o u n d.

    Some well known forums really SUK. Sometimes pros do not suffer fools lightly. lol.
    Also...if you have a great board but shitty moderators the whole thing will go south imo. Finding a good moderator is like looking for an honest car salesman.

    Come on, guys. Enough with the warm fuzzies. his forum sucks!
    When I joined, I expected to find more plumber jokes.

    Where are the cracks about plumbers' cracks?

    Where are the quips like "A good flush beats a full house every time"?

    Or

    Plumbing is the only profession where you'll hear your boss say, "Be sure your joints have lots of dope in them!"

    Default I agree.

    Yes, I too have been around on MANY forums, and this one is very special.
    I love that names are encouraged. Much great info here. Would definately be deserving of an award. We just can't let it go to their heads!

    Oh and as far a jokes about plumbers crack... I just got an e-mail a few days ago that had a video clip of a comedy central spoof product called 'crack spackle' design just for THAT crack. pretty funny.

    Default Rugged, Wha'appened

    I think I speak for many when I say that by far, the best thing about this forum is Rugged's old avatar. What happened to that? I cracked up everytime I saw it.

    "I put my pants on just one leg at a time - just like normal people. The difference is, when I get my pants on, I make gold records. I gotta have more cow bell!"

    I'm dyin! Bring it back!!!

    Oh..it's a cowbell. It's early and I was wondering: Why the hell is he hitting his drink like that? It must be really bad... lol
    Man, you beat that thing like a rented mule. I think hobbies are important. How long did it take you to master the cowbell anyway? I understand it can take years...I'm in awe of your talent!!

    Default hi cookie ,what scale are we talking about?

    is this infrequent jewlrey work? I was a certified welder in the union for years. all of that work was mild steel. allum, stainless I do now, is usually

    repair on a small scale. was your husband exposed to metals in his work?

    I hope I'm not out of line with that question Cookie. If you need help ,I can

    ask for you or set you up with people in the welding trade on several different forums .If I can be of help e mail me. Be well Kevin
