Nah, it would take more than some sparky to chase me off. They're always on break anyway, it would cause them to spill their coffee or drop a doughnut.
Thanks for the kind words fellas, still have more moles than ever, even the exterminator said he's never had to come back this often.(I think he is regretting his money back guarantee.)
With regards to this posters absence I apologize for not explaining sooner. There have been opportunities for my advancement within certain organizations and it was in my best interests and the interests of the organizations to take advantage of them. That, coupled with with a great work assignment on a project that happened to have an awful contractor had strained my time obligations dramatically.
That project came in under budget and almost on time (only one week over) despite high water table problems that four huge diesel pumps could not keep up with and a contractor that managed to tick off the general and every other trade whenever he staggered out to the job site.... Anyway I am now off for a week or so and have a chance to rest and get caught up on some chores. At least for the next couple of days I'll try to get here a few times before things get going again. Hopefully tommorrow there will be more time to reply to some other posts and maybe start one, but for now now it looks I need to hire a golf coach and maybe a realtor.
Its good to see so many good posters still around. It was my good fortune to begin posting here around the same time the place was really morphing from a decent to really good web site. Hawk, Dog, Rick, Utah and others, including you too Josh, were very instrumental at least in MHO, in bringing about the increased interest in the site. Sorry to read of the spamming problems. Gotta go now but will write more later.
I knew you were still lurking around in here. Good to see you back. Some guys started writing me concerned that something may have happened to you (like electrocuting yourself) .
Glad you are on a little break from the constant work. I myself am enjoying the calm before the storm in November... if you havent read yet my wife is pregnant with twins! bigtime life changes comming up. Cant wait!
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
