    Paul, it will suck that you are leaving. Your knowledge and common sense was a good offset to some of the goofy rants that go on here.
    ROTFLMAO.. since you are the author of most of the goofy rants here!

    Fortunatley, firehouse.com is not representative of the real world. Having realized that, you treat what you hear on this site as nothing more than playground chatter.
    Which is why you will never get out of the stall. A lot of good information has been posted here, it's only useful if you choose to read it and use it.

        Paul.

        From the heart of my bottom.

        Your leaving here will remove a Brother ( Mikey Likes Brothers) that does not talk P!ss and Vinegar (German translation is so much bettter).

        Personaly I have been able to use knowledge recieved from your self and your website in situations by recognising FACTS presented on your website.

        I see you. You can not, and will not walk away.

        You will do the one thing you have done all of your life, for no more reason than it is a fundamental belief within yourself.

        And for that, I salute you BROTHER

        IACOJ. Where the fun ends, and the learning begins.

        Kia Kaha Brother Paul.

          Paul you will be missed. But sometimes a decision has to be made and kept. For better or for worse, I wish you well to the future.

          Just remember one thing:

            Funny that 8 years later Paul and I are having multiple discussions on facebook and agreeing more than disagreeing.
            Crazy, but that's how it goes

            Maybe it's not too late

              Is that where the discussions happen? On the faciespace?

              I still consider an internet forum to be less weenie than the faciespacie.

              Glad yer talking though.
              The fire service is about service to our fellow man.

                  I wish he would come back here. We are facebook friends and I am getting in on some of his conversations on there.
