    Ed Speer and George Andrews at Antigravity Gear have both earned repeat business from me. One thing that impresses me and I consider very important is customer service. Both Ed and George have absolutely top-notch service that is without a doubt unparallelled by many. I have yet to do business with JRB or OES, but I've heard nothing but good stuff about both. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with either of them.

    That is very interesting. Who would benifit from holding the money? Paypal? Do they just deposit your money in the bank and sit on it for a week, or what?

    That's about it.... quater pennies a day over several hundred [urchases can add up. I think it is called the "float" but I could be wrong. When I was young if you deposited anything but cash in the bank you had to wait foru business days before you could draw on it. They calimed it took that long to process it. But the Fed bank regulators did a most deplorable thing.. they ratted on their own. The banks were sitting on that money pocketing interest that should have been yours. The rules changed.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Well I have been a lurker for some time. I used the knowledge that was freely given of this group a number of times as I left the ground and climbed into the tree's. I have never said thanks, the least I can do is help support this place for others like me trying to evolve from ground creatures. Also, thanks to all who have helped me.
