All the more reason to have everyone register with a legit email address and username.

Can one get in trouble with their full-time employer for posing as someone else on a blog?

I doubt it, probably too hard to prove.

I am the homeowner. I would like to thank all of the hard-working firefighters who risked thier lives preventing this disaster from spreading to my neighbor’s houses. They thank you, too. Lessons to be learned include: (1) use brick, stone, or block, when building houses, (2) don’t store ANYTHING flameable next to a house, including yard wste and scrap lumber, (3) back-up all important documents – paper and electronic – off-site, (4) don’t keep cash at home, (5) get a fire safe and use it, (6) keep a fire extinguisher outside the house as well as inside, and (7) store ashes away from your house and don’t empty the can until summertime.

If any of the firefighters would like to contact me offline with comments or questions, please do so here: Gordon@GSHudson.com

And thanks for rescuing my kayaks, too.
