Default Question for the group (cross-posted to forums)

Aah! Thanks for the info Aaron albeit so sad & why I haven't seen his name
"Aaron Hicks" wrote in message


That was John Talpa, who was certified as a water specialist under
what I think is the best water quality group for that sort of thing. John
died a couple of years ago after a battle with cancer; he was a Vietnam
war veteran, and thought it likely that his particular type of cancer was
likely caused by Agent Orange exposure, along with some other health
problems that he had.

He was truly a nice guy who really knew his stuff when it came to
water- no kidding around, and no babble. More importantly, he was also an
orchid grower, so he was the "go to" guy when it came to water problems
and orchids. I for one really miss him and his advice.

The address in the header is bogus. Send no email there.
