    Recently I saw that there was a common denominator between myself and a couple of other members.

    I e-mailed them both and introduced myself.

    One responded and I havent had the chance to write back.

    The other also answered but says he prefers to remain anonymous because many of us work in the same areas.

    Now I cant even respond as he no longer takes private mail.
    Or maybe I made the ignore list.

    That bothers me.

    I've been makin the grass grow for a long time and as we all have, have met many fine people along the way.

    Sure, we probably do work in some common areas and yes I'm sure we bid against each other from time to time.

    But many of these guys work in areas that I do not work in and I don't mind referring them to people who call me.

    I also started coming to this site to network with others who are dealing with similar situations and maybe even to help others when I can.

    As far as I'm concerned anonymous suggests HIDING and nothing more.

    Don't know if I'll be back.

    Pilgrim's Pride,
    I have come across the same thing unfortunately OR I see alot of people "knocking/fighting" instead of "helping" each other in threads!
    I personally feel it's due more to ego's & ignorance on their part. I don't mind having a worthy/ knowledgeable competitor... It helps keep me on my toes!

    All I can say is... "Don't let a few bad apples..."
    This Site has a wealth of information for us!!!
    (As you must know by your registration date)
    I just spend most of the time reading & learning and only post if it's right for me.

    PM me... I return them... :D

    Bob, I think you should stay,

    "The other also answered but says he prefers to remain anonymous because many of us work in the same areas."

    I wouldnt let this bother you, I dont think He/she is a bad apple

    Sometimes I wish my name and address and phone number wasnt out there.

    Ive read alot of your post and find them helpfull, and as a former old fox guy you got my respect..... :)

    hello, anonymous here.

    Sorry if i disappoint you. I am open to helping when i can in this message board and open to asking for help as well.

    I have several reasons for wanting to be anonymous. Yes, my PM is off, personally i dont see the need for it, PM that is. Ask me anything here in the open for all to read.

    I also feel bad that I put the burden on Cormier to help keep me anonymous. I do appreciate it though.

    "anonymous suggest hiding and nothing more"...sure, i prefer to hide my identity, but so what? I'm not 'hiding' my knowledge (limited as it is) or hiding from expressing my opinions on various subjects that come up in here.

    Again, sorry if I dissapoint you. With the season now starting I wont be here much so you need not go away, I will.

    BTW, was I not cordual with you when I returned your PM? Did I not give the the info you asked for as far as Old Fox, which was your question? I just want to be unknown, like many others, actually seems like most others want to be anonymous. Can you respect that?

    I certainly dont want to be the focal point of anything and I'm not playing a game of mystery.
    Have a nice day and a great season.

    I guess you are entitled to your privacy.
    I apoplogize for my silly behavior earlier.
    There is no good excuse and I am sorry.
    Thank you for answering on the other line about the wedgil.
    I am leaning that way myself.

    I do wish you all well this season.



    Where can I order the wedgil? Does anyone know?

    no biggie, i'm thick skinned (and thick headed?) :)

    click on -contact us-
    you'll see a listing of dealers. We ordered ours the the RI Valley Green Co rather than the MA Valley GReen co. The MA company took 3 weeks to return my call. When I called RI they shipped it out the same day!
