Bob has been in the game a long time, and does a great job passing on his extensive knowledge of, “hand work.” Almost more importantly, Bob seems to be a nice guy, and is very responsive to listener questions and show topic ideas. I’ve been listening since almost day one, and I won’t be stopping soon. Thanks, Bob! Scott A. Jackson, TN
