Here is a place to wish our surrogate father we never had, who taught us do much about how not to get all steamed up about the work we do.

Happy Fathers Day @DanHolohan, who has been like a father to me, in teaching me a lot about hydronics. Charging me big bucks to hear him talk about this stuff, Making me buy the books I needed to study this trade. And giving me his phone number if I ever needed his help. but he never answers that phone number

Reminds me of the good old days when my real dad was still alive. He also taught me stuff at a cost, made me by my own school books, and never answered the phone when I called (after he got Caller I*D installed on the line)

And to all the Dads out there that continue to help the next generation of Steam Heads

Here is a DAD Joke appropriate for tomorrow.

    Not taking a call from the techs is the best way to help....MAKE them learn!!! When some of us started we didn't have cell phones, hell we didn't have beepers yet.

    Unfortunately the techs now call the minet they get to the job.

    Dig in first, you might learn something. Don't call until you have gone as far as you can go, then if your still stuck think twice before calling.

    I learned the most about a system and how to troubleshoot the problem when I was on a night call where I was stymied and had no one to call. Have a great FATHERS DAY

    Number One Son just got me a coffee cup for Father's Day, it says "If at first you don't succeed, try doing what ratio told you to do the first time".

    What a great boy.

    Happy Father's Day!
