At the risk of embarrassing our fearless forum leader, & in what most will consider to be a somewhat surprising post, I must take my hat off to Richard for providing a very steady & fair hand to a forum that is providing a very important service to our fellow countrymen in a time of need.With home heating prices at record highs & with a veritable flood of people trying to ensure their families will survive the winter's cold next year, I think we all owe a debt of gratitude to Richard for providing a free meeting place where so much expertise on coal heat can be found!
(I know Richard is waiting for a "zinger" from me...
...But none will be forthcoming!)
On a side note, many of us have found the "Off Topic" forum here to provide a great "Town Hall" to air our opinions. As most of you who put on your hip boots & "wade into" that forum know, Richard & I rarely, if ever, agree on anything! But
Even though I know that he (Richard) would often rather shoot me than post my opinions, I must admit that he has never used his "God Like" powers to curb my posts or further his side of any debate, & it is appreciated!I salute you Richard!
