Default Accolades to Fred West

I would like to acknowledge my appreciation of Fred West's efforts (and accomplishments) of giving new life to this forum by getting (recruiting?) a whole new myriad of top quality, highly skilled and very interesting manufacturers to share their products and experiences.
Great job Fred!

So true! There are certain people who have a rare and special gift, not only for making connections, but for sharing them where they can be most appreciated. Fred is definitely one of those rare people.

All that, and a really nice guy, too!

There's no doubt about it, everybody loves Fred.

Watching him in action is nothing short of amazing.

It's all the more amazing when you consider that half the days of the week he can't even drag himself out of bed, due to the pain. It's almost inconceivable how he maintains such good humor and incredible social skills, given what he goes through every day. I know I wouldn't be up to it. Heck - I can't pull off a tenth what Fred pulls off, and I'm not suffering back pain.

Kudos, Fred. You da MAN!

Fred and I share the back pain and the meds... I just wish he'd share those dammed planes!
