Congratulations Andy! If you all have been watching the post count, you'll know that Andy has more than 2000 posts. That's incredible -- especially when his posts are so informative and helpful. Thanks and congratulations to Andy!

Thank you. I'm sure some are more informative than others, but I believe we're all in this together. And I enjoy "talking" with my BOL family.

As opposed to work, sometimes people listen to what I say here.

Andy,
Congrats! Your help has been invaluable to me and to many others! I can't tell you how much I appreciate the time, effort and energy you put into this forum. Your responses are always well thought-out and I always know I can depend on the informaton I get from you. However, I have wondered for a long time how you manage to answer all these posts and still get your work done? Do you have a staff of thousands, or have you given up sleeping? Just curious!
Thanks again!
Leslie

I am a staff of 1. When I go on vacation, the entire compliance department goes.

Thank you for the comments. It is that type of encouragement that keeps me doing this.

Congrats Andy. I also am a one man department, Auditor and Comply guy, and I really don't see where you have the time to do all that you do to help us. Thanks so much and keep up the good work for BOL!!

Congratulations, Andy. It's also good to see that the BOL post counter didn't malfunction when Andy passed P2K!

I wish I had all that time to do posts all day. I also appreciate the responses since I don't have the time and sometimes don't have the time to research.

Well, I know at least part of Andy's secret - that is that he knows and remembers so much compliance that most of us have to go back and look up that he can get four times the number of posts of even his closest followers. He must have huge stockpiles of Ginko-Biloba.

Actually I am looking for a new drink I have seen advertised. It is called "Bawls". Honestly. It is named such to be memorable. I have no idea what it tastes like, but the caffeine level is supposed to be 2 that of coffee. And it'll hopefully balance this age thing I have going that makes me sleep at night, with working on my PC. I didn't used to sleep so much.

Has anyone tasted this stuff? They sell it in Houston and Dallas or I can order it online. But I don't want a 6-pack if its nasty.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
Now Andy, you know what we do with high performers in this industry. It's time to set goals. How many posts would you like to make before conference next year? We could reward you at conference with 1 drink for every post over your goal amount. That should serve to bring you down from your caffeine high.

Seriously though, we do appreciate you.

Andy - is that anything like RED BULL? At $2 a drink, it's an expensive habit! The one I really like is from the Jones Soda Company and it's called (no joke here) WHOOP ASS.

I recommend that all Compliance Officers buy at least one so next time someone commits an egregious violation, you can tell them you're coming over to open a can of .....

Oh - almost forgot - Congrats and thanks Andy! You've earned your BOL ADDICT button!

Congratulations Andy, not only for your teriffic participation but for being so gentlemanly and professional in all your responses.

At the next ABA Compliance convention I will spring for all the umbrella drinks you can handle.

Bonnie, I don't think we've ever met. But if you called me and said you were coming over to open a can of that on me, I'd be checking on my vacation days remaining. I'd be otta there.

You've helped more people than you will ever know. This is definitely a case where you may be able to count the seeds in an apple, but you can't count the apples in a seed. The knowledge you share are seeds we plant. Thanks so much!
