    Aww, thanks for the kind words, sir! You've been an inspiration to me for years - continuing to knock out books is hard, hard work. I respect the stuff you're putting out there, and it's a tough subject matter, too.

    Appreciate the kind words too! I am just glad that when writing I have someone reviewing what I say for technical correctness and grammar. You make it look effortless to do it live :

    Part of the reason why I stay in this "business" is the community at large.  You and Brent, along with many others both well known and not so well known (many who frequent these very forums and take the time to share in blogs, SQL Saturdays, summits, etc) are a good part of that community.  As I've said many times, "You've just gotta love this community".  Thank you and everyone else for sharing your knowledge and your skill.  My hat is humbly off to you.

    Brent, thank you again for the great show you put on for our user group a couple of weeks ago.  I will definitely return the grand favor.

    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.

    Heh... me too.  Never ate a steak and shrimp off a hot paver stone before. 😉
