Hi Jack! wavehi.gif

I agree with Crystal... We all missed you, and I'm really glad to see you back even for just a bit.

Yours was the warm welcome that I enjoyed when I first showed up here, and I have been trying to share it with every newcomer I encounter.

You are a true inspiration to us all! notworthy.gif

Cheers cheers.gif

Howdy, TheDBGuy!!

When you came along I could see the handwriting on the wall...."Smart lad joins UA Forums causing old dude to consider work at a winery instead. Wine has not changed in 2,000 years, but technology is changing faster than 'the old dude'. Consequently, time to pass the torch...." Well, that isn't exactly what I said, and it probably isn't even close, but what the heck!!

Thank you for your happy reply and for picking up the slack here at UA!!

My very best to you and keep those brilliant answers coming!!

Jack

Howdy, George!!!

Things are very well. Very well indeed!!! Doing my Saturday job at the winery is taxing, but great fun, as I get to deal with lots of fun and happy people. A lot like the people here at UA!!!

I trust you are well and that you are getting your fair share of sunny days... Remember, if it is raining it is best to stay indoors... grinhalo.gif

Sir Jack - you're back (if only for a while) !!!!

You've been greatly missed by all in the UA halls, none more so than be me. I miss our late night banter and tales of yore laugh.gif

Hope things are well for you and yours and the wine cellar is still well stocked and flowing well - and you're enjoying your semi-retirement in the Californian sunshine.

Don't be too much of a stranger my old friend, and drop by now and then for a catch up. Here's to you wine.gif

Alan, you young rascal! How wonderful to hear from you!!!

Say, that wouldn't be a beer in your avatars hand, would it? Nah...I didn't think so...

Life is really good and I have missed my many friends here at UA, but I soldiered on. When I realized that Crystal, and many others, were sneaking up on my post count I had to jump back in the race. At least temporarily. To keep the old wine cellar properly stocked I have to put in a fair amount of time at the winery, which is OK, as I l do love my wine.

But there is another liquid that comes from a place Scotland, wherever that is. They make whiskey there. And you know what? I LOVE IT! I guess I am your man for all things alcoholic...

I trust you are well, working furiously, staying up late and having the time of your life!!!

I can't pass up this opportunity...

Jack, though your time here was slightly before mine and I don't have recollection of your direct help in threads, you are easily revered here as a UA Legend, spoken of with awe and amazement by so many that I truly do wish I had the chance to have been one of those to recieve your teachings directly. Having seen previous posts and the help you've offered, it's quite obvious that you are a one of a kind.

Pleased to meet you, Sir hat_tip.gif

Hello, Jack -

I hope you will excuse the familiarity of my salutation , but UA, as you know, tends to be familiar. And that, in my humble opinion, is one of the many reasons that this is the best Access forum EVER.

Thank you very much for your kind words, as they are truly appreciated.

I'm not sure about being a 'legend', but I have been lurking for a very long time and enjoying every minute of it. Now it is time for me to ask you to do whatever you can to promulgate UA and all it has to offer. There are a few of the old guard still here, but it is up to the newer members to keep this the special forum what it is. That's you!!

It, Sir, has been my pleasure to meet you!!

Jack

You are missed my friend. The wine cellar never looks the same without you around milling with the barrels and the formulation.

Tall Doug -

I so clearly remember our meeting in San Francisco...over a couple of beers...but I won't mention that part...or the sign you carried....

It feels good to be back with old friends. UA is THE BEST Access forum going with the best and brightest willing to give of their time and expertise. I have been very fortunate to have been able to contribute in my small way....

Memories of Hastings Ranch came flooding back when I saw your post. I wonder why?

I trust you are busy, happy and continuing to make a positive difference in this world.

Wonderful to hear you Doug. Thanks for being a friend....

Jack how are you doing my old friend?
Been a long time since we bantered back and forth. I have to thank you for getting me interested in wine never drank it till I met you.
Now I enjoy a glass or 2 or 3 you get the idea every night. I even took up making my own.
Don't make yourself so scarce we miss you. wine.gif

Sir Jack!!!!! kisses.gif

So often, when replying to a post, I think "What did Jack teach me about this?" or "How would Jack reply to that?".
We need your wisdom, humor, example, and graciousness around here!!
You have so much to share--
and there is a new generation of UA members that need to know how to skin the Access cat <
Like Alan, I so miss our late night chats!!

In preparation for your long anticipated un-retirement:

1. Light on in corner office--check
2. Steps to UA wine cellar cleared-- check
(may need re-stocked, been sadly neglected it in your absence)

Give me a J
Give me a A
Give me a C
Give me a K

Yea Jack!!

Howdy Do Glen!!!

Thank you for your kind words.

I'm pleased to hear that you are having fun with wine. Please keep drinking as it is California's number one industry. You are buying California wines, aren't you?? Well, the occasional wine from Chile or an expensive one from Australia.... thumbup.gif

I trust you are doing well and going full speed ahead!!

Always fun to chat with you, Glen!!!

Dear Cynthia -

OH MY STARS! What an enthusiastic welcome....makes me feel just at tad blush.gif I'm not sure that I deserve so many kind and thoughtful words, but I'm gonna take 'em!!!

I think I learned as much from you as the other way round. You are very good at this Access business and IF I can find more hours in a day I will do a bit of lurking....hoping to learn from YOU! You see...I don't even have Access on my computer since Microsoft started in with the ribbon.... You can only teach an old dog a few new tricks and the ribbon was where I hit the wall. But I am not whining....well....maybe just a little.

Anyway, it is terrific to hear from you as you are ALWAYS up and cheerful and sunny and bright and FUN!!

Keep it up, Cynthia, because you are doing a fantastic job here at UA!!!

Thank YOU very much indeed....

Jack

Jack, I can't tell you how much it warms my heart to see you on the thread and getting people talking, like you are so very good at!

To all:
Jack "adopted" me ... he is always there for me, in my brightest and darkest hours, to bring me back to reality, give sage fatherly advice, and make me laugh! I hope I get to give you a real hug someday, "dad" <

I have been keeping an eye on TheDBGuy because I remember when he had his first post. Right then I knew I was in trouble, but that is as it should be. There comes a time when the right thing to do is to step aside and give the next generation their turn and their rewards.

Thank you for your kind post!!!
