    James all I can say is WOW, great pictorial for a great bear.  Just hope the "Indian-givers" of the OTBS come to their senses and re-enstate our beloved bear back to his humble status.  I cant believe that they, whom ever 'they' are had the gall to strip that away.  Beats me.

    Bear! Thanks for all the feedback and info in threads.  Your comments are some of the ones I look forward to the most when I post. 

    I have been known to stalk your posts when I am hunting for info. 

    Hope you have another 9000 for me to look through.

  3. Buddy, sorry for being so late to congratulate you. Been very busy lately. I've told you before how much I appreciate your posts, and I always look forward to see what you're cookin'. You've inspired this poor french canadian from way up north to cook some great good ol' American Q. Lookin' forward to the next 9000. Have a great evening my friend.

    65 posts from Bear Followers and none from the clan that stripped him down to a newbie for no reason. [​IMG]  Shame.............

    Thank You very much!!!

    I've had fun swapping posts with you!

    Thanks, but I'm not sure I agree with your selection of words:

    Plethora

    Synonyms---overabundanceoverage,overflowoverkillovermuchoverplusoversupplyplusredundancysuperabundancesuperfluity,surfeitsurplussurplusage

    I don't consider my posts to be any of those things.

    ON EDIT:  Usage of the word "plethora" by Pops explained on post # 77, and my reply & appreciation on post # 80.  Thank You, Bear

    Hey John,

    I'm one of your biggest fans, but I sure hope this controversy doesn't turn this site into the Hatfields vs the McCoys.

    I wish this would just all go away & we could all just get back to smoking!

    Good luck & I hope they reconsider your OTBS status.

    Your Buddy, Al

    Good point Al !

    Note: OK guys I love you all, and I really appreciate the kind words from so many.

    I realize you are not happy about things that have happened (neither am I), but Let's take it a bit easy. Forgive & forget.

    I'll keep doing what I have always done---helping others, watching for safety slip-ups, and complimenting other peoples' smokes, and also making step by steps for all to use, including me & my bad memory!!!

    Let's put this thread into the positive only mode, for Old Bear !!

    Thanks to all you wonderful People!!!

    Yes you were. Camden is another country. The Phils are rockin', and perhaps the Eagles might be right behind them. This could be the year![​IMG]

    I beg to differ, my good friend - you've had an overabundance of great advice, an overage and overflow of compliments to others, an overkill of gentle kindness to others, , overmuch, overplus and oversupply of technical expertise that you gratefully and willingly share with all others, a plus and redundancy of appreciation to all other who have helped you achieve what you have achieved, a superabundance of good will and kind words at every step of the way encouraging others to experiment and try things as you make it look easy, interesting and fun, and finally a superfluity, surfeit surplus and surplusage of selflessly posting one after another of great encouraging words and sound advice that you could be doing something else but choose to devote your time, efforts,  expertise and knowledge to helping others enjoy this great hobby!  Thank you for everything you do, Bear!  I  only meant this in the best of spirits for you!  Again, as I said, congratulations!

    Thanks again,
