    A special thanks to zapster for bringing this to my attention and a very heart felt thanks to all for the kind words. To say I'm honored is putting it mildly and I can think of a number of others I would have voted for.

    Thanks for the heads-up Stan. I'll keep an eye on the driveway.

    Judy just asked if this means I'll be spending more time on the forum? Of course I assured her not a chance.

    If it wasn't for Duane I would have a nice clean organized shop. But now that I (Duane) can fix ANYTHING no matter how big of a turd it is, there is NOTHING I won't drag home and pile up in the floor.

    Thanks Duane. I think.

    No really he is #1 in my book. Like 1 in 100,000,000.
