Whoa! Like Jim Luckett, along with the rest of you, I too will miss REITNUT. I have the brown one, the blue one, and the black one, all "Investing in REITS" by Ralph Block. None has contributed more to the understanding of the REIT world than our pal Ralph, who has been a huge contributor of his time and energy, both to this board and to the greater REIT community.

I too would like to hear something from Barry Vinocur who wrote the Realty Stock Review, I still have a copy from 1999, when misunderstood REITS were selling at a discount to their NAV, with high quality REITS conservatively yielding 5%, while growing FFO on average 5%. I miss his combative nature. Once I used the term, "skin in the game," only to have quick warning from Barry, that he had invented the term.

It was a good run and Ralph was a great mentor to fledgling investors, this one included. Pariseur, RDonohue, Jim Luckett, and LansRes, along with the Vinocur were among the many who made this board a gem in the early days.

Best Regards,
