    The Best Trainers and the best company.  John Barba and Dave Holdorf are a powerful team.  Did the factory tour yesterday.  Taco is the paradigm for a thriving American Factory and family owned American success story. The factory floor is immaculate, sqaured away and highly organized.  I've seen this on several trips here.  This variegated work force of lots of Men, women, and Ethnic groups of all kinds, with  personalities cheerfully working away, has a VERY positive energy, vibe and esprit de Corps.  I've been in many factory tours where this was not always the case. The Plumbing, heating and mechanical work of the building is Top Notch. The White Family obviously hires only the finest Contractors in Rhode Island.  Even the insulation work is outstanding.  The Live fire labs are incredible too..  Everyone, from the Receptionist at the front desk, to the janitor and the nice ladies setting out the food, are friendly and genuine.  Got to see my old Friends  Joe Mattielo and Mark Chafee.  The training room is like a very comfortable university Lecture room - scaled down, with tables of a who's who of Taco products from The Early days to present.  I saw Alex The Wire Nut Marx's old office!  Every time I come here, I feel like I've come "Home."  I always draw alot from meeting my Hydronic Brothers & Sisters from America 🇺🇸 and Canada 🇨🇦.  All roads lead back to Dan Holohan and TLM...they started this "family" through his articles, Seminars, books, kindness, humor.  I feel so privileged to have got on the Holohan Train 🚆 my first year in the business.  I got to personally meet and hang out with the Rock Stars like Johnny White.. 🌟 of our Industry...Back Stage Pass...all access.  I go back to NY 
    Excited and gung ho.  I always learn something and it's great to visit with Fambly.  Mad Dog 🐕
