Just having spoken off line with a few people I think it is best that Mike and I simply avoid each other. It does nothing to forward the discussion and throws one big wet blanket on something which is becoming near and dear to them in their own training.
Not the least of which is there are guys who like us both and they hate to see this keep happening.
So happy holidays to one and all.
Overall, this appears to be as close to an 'internet hug' as can be expected concerning this issue - maybe not directly to Mike, but at least to the rest of us - sounds like a winner to me
