Hey Al, welcome aboard.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

I met Al (fireishot) @ last yr's Pond Boss Conference. He was friendly, knowledgeable of the type of pond I was looking to have. He introduced me to other pond enthusiast. He has always been here to help when I asked so many questions over the past 15 months.
Mr Lusk, I think you made a good choice. So congrats Al and thanks for being here.

Congrats Al! Great choice!


"Forget pounds and ounces, I'm figuring displacement!"

If we accept that: MBG(+)FGSF(=)HBG(F1)
And we surmise that: BG(>)HBG(F1) while GSF(<)HBG(F1)
Would it hold true that: HBG(F1)(+)AM500(x)q.d.(=)1.5lbGRWT?
PB answer: It depends.

I want to be in the room when Dave and Al get into a discussion/debate grin .

I met them both last year (with Al putting us up, or putting up with us , for 3 days) and could listen to the two of them go at it all day. One of the most memorable parts of my trip laugh . Both terrific gentlemen guys! whistle

+ 1 on everything said, with fair and unbiased being an understatement, IMO.

Glad to see you as part of the Mod team, Al!
