Perspective is a curious thing. I sometimes wish I just kept my perspective and point of view to myself.

The only thing I have ever claimed to be an expert at is making an ass out of myself.

Andy, when did you say you have the Zip Dee's on sale?

Now I am wondering, Did I ever thank Andy?

I dunno, I am sure I thanked his staff big time. Well, they deserved it.
They were the professionals and technicians that did the work. What
did Andy really ever do besides give me free advice and give me the benefit
of his years of experience. Maybe I'll give him a karma point. ......Nah

Cheap trick

the power of DUH. I get it - 62Overlander was pimping us into realizing the valuable contributions that the vendors make to the forum. Well Done. I've been awakened from my complacency.

Hey 62overlander; Stop beating yourself because I truly do not know any individuals who do not regret one thing or another many times over. We all have done it and it is not for the last time. I think that your comment has just awakened many members into reality. Thanks, "Boatdoc"

I once followed a thread where a vendor and a retired Axle guy had a difference of opinion on what was required to complete a repair. That thread was like a college course as two Pro's discussed the issue in detail and their reasons for the course each was taking.

Thanks to both as I learned a lot.

What's wrong with Inland Andy...

His company is on the WRONG Coast!

Open a branch in Virginia for cryin' out loud.

Who else needs a big wet sloppy kiss? I feel a group hug is needed.

Come on, everybody send a Big Bucket of Karma to your favorite vendor.

Boatdoc, Thank you but I beat myself up for far more than what comes out of my mouth, or through my finger tips. There are few things I regret; I regret that I quit boyscouts one merit badge away from becoming an Eagle scout. I regret treating a girl named Beth badly. I regret trying cigarettes at 11 and liking them. I regret not telling all the people in my life that have died, how much I loved them...
I now know where people stand. I will use more caution in what I say in the future. I am glad that some people are grateful for the service their vendors provide, for the advise they give, and the availability and pricing they provide through this forum. This forum is the right place for that to take place. If I have offened anyone, I apologize to you from the bottom of my heart.
I also now know that there are some people that agree with me, but chose not to state it in a public forum. All the PM's were much apreciated.
So where does this lead me, us, you... I would like to let all of you know that I am a cabinet maker. If anyone is missing any cabinets or needs some new ones built... please give me a shout. I can reproduce any Airstream fixture up until 1972. In 1972 they started using laminates and plastic is not allowed in my shop. I am running a forums special. Just mention the forums and I will do an extra special job for you.

Seems 62overlander was just asking a simple question and 1700+ views and 50+ posts later we have come to a simple answer...

YES!

----------------------------------

BTW, Maryland is kinda far for me and I plan to do my own cabinety, but if you were closer I sure wouldn't mine 62overlander as a friend...as for vendors, I'd much rather spend my money with my friends.

As for the vendors on this forum, I appreciate many of them... you'll all know who you are when I send my money your way.

Have you tried the negative sign? If you want to screen out a word from the google search results, use the negative sign followed by the word you want to screen out from the results.

Using Amazaon as an example...if you wanted to search for the string "bourne identity" and didn't want to see any results from Amazon, this is what your search string would look like:

"bourne identity" -amazon
