    None! But John and Dave Cataneo are. 

    With very little exception, most of what I teach is what I've learned over the years from Dan anyway, so it 's kinda, somewhat, almost-a-little-bit, nearly, sorta, vaguely similar to learning from the big guy. Minus the amusing anecdotes, but including some colorful jobsite banter.
    I do what I can.
