I do not always agree with everything Jim tells us but I must highly praise him for dedicating a good part of his day to servicing us lesser lights on this board. I know, one can undertake studies bearing this out but I wish only to take an example of this afternoon. A post within the thread "Canadian banks" appeared at 4.21 pm to-day. Jim's answer came at 6.24. It had considerable length, as a lot of his posts do. If I had to say something at this length, the checking of facts, and spelling errors would take me a good deal of time.

And Jim Mungo does this for many threads on almost every day. Considering he lives in Europe, 6.24 Eastern is more like midnight his local time. He is a hard worker and we owe him thanks for the service he gives to all of us.

I had to unignore you for this but I heartily agree.
Jim is one of the best, no doubt.
I really wish all financial advisers were like him.

I see this Board as a kind of a Tribe. In many Tribes the philosophy is that they are only as strong as your weakest members. So, taking the time to educate is so important. Love Ya for that Jim; you are surely one of our Tribe's Chieftans, leading by wonderful example.

Reading Jim's post makes me feel guilty. I keep thinking that I should be paying to read his posts and would do so very willingly.

Thank you Jim!

I blush. Thanks for the kind words.

I like researching questions that people post.
It probably looks like I already know the answers I'm going to give
(not to be confused with the actual true answers), but it's often only
when somebody asks an interesting question that I start thinking about it,
researching it, and making up my mind. I learn a lot that way.

Considering he lives in Europe, 6.24 Eastern is more like midnight his local time
I cheated. I'm visiting Canada right now ; )

Agreed. I very rarely post anything but I am a regular visitor to this site. I read a great deal that's written on this board. I sit and absorb like a sponge. Can't believe I get to learn so much for free.

Thanks Jim,

Read many of your posts, and enjoy and appreciate all the ones I read.

Don't forget to get your fix of poutine, while your back in the Great White North!

Cheers,

Rick (from a boat on Georgian Bay, up on the Canadian Shield)

Both I (and my cardiologist) remain happy I'm a vegetarian and thus safe from poutine.
I suppose it's theoretically possible to have vegetarian gravy and fry
the patates in something other than rendered roadkill, but do I
really want to ask what goes into it? There's a place at the Central
Canada Exhibition that has an entire poutine menu. *shudder*

To me, it's all about the wild blueberries.

You can't beat this board when it comes to French Canadian cuisine. When we were in Montreal and Quebec some years ago no one mentioned poutine. I guess my current cardiologist who is a good old Texas boy would have no opinion on this dish.
