"Really nice post Warren. I like the analogy and the message. I'm struggling with why more folks haven't responded to such a great message. None the less, fine job, I'll be sharing this with the troops."

"Spot-on Paul. I know I've "endured" the teaching of such a character many times. I pray I haven't become one myself, it's always foremost in my mind when I am teaching."

Jeff Betz commented on Paul Combs's blog post FDIC IS FINALLY HERE!
"I gave my slot to some younger guys this year, but maybe I'll see ya Friday, I'll be making the trip for at least 1 day. Nice reminder by the way; I get frustrated when I hear folks say they went, and when I ask how many classes they took…"

"Pretty sure I'm in, need to talk to my buddy that is coming down for the week with me. He's into fitness like me, so you likely have 2 more, it's the least we can do to help."

Hey jeff
I would appreciate that list. And definitely let me know for the city stuff. Do you know if any Paid on Call spots are open, I would like to get in there to but I don't know where to start. I think Bart and Meat-head are trying to get me to do a vent training. That's why I want the good training material.

Hi, Lieutenant - thanks for the compliment on my work. And yes, it's great to hear from someone from the great Great Lakes, too. God's country, eh?
Take care, Brother!
