    We discuss just about everything here..Its all part of the Cosmos, man....Dan is the Arnold Toynbee of Hydronics. Recording the history, interpretation and then presentation are almost as important as the Historical Events. Mad Dog

    And, I am proud to say, Dan has been my Gil Carson and then some. My whole life was made brighter by his presence in my life. I owe him a lot! Alex "Wire Nut"

    Thanks. Yes, I drove him from the Roosevelt Hotel in Midtown Manhattan to LaGuardia Airport. As I was dropping him off he asked me if he had luggage. Back to the hotel we went, and in quite a hurry.

    Retired and loving it.
