Hi posters,

It has been mentioned that it would be very helpful if the originator of a post provided a bit of information regarding a solution to it. Don't know if this qualifies but I want to fill in some details about my friends who gave me inspiration for the initial post. I have known them since high school (over 40 years) and luckily they have all stayed in the neighborhood.
One is an accountant who does my tax returns, another is a landscaper who plows my parent's driveway in the winter and another is a master plumber who fixes my mistakes.

In exchange for their help, I melt metal and repair what I can for them.

No money is exchanged - only beer and favors.

It's good to have friend's like them even if we all pick on each other.
