Albert,
 
I found this forum perhaps a month or so ago, perhaps two months. In that time, i have learned much from everyone here, and have tried to give some of what i know back to others. This place is wonderful for the exchange of ideas and support.
 
Keep up the good work!

Albert,
      When I first came upon this site (in the beginnings) I watched and read for many months before joining up and becomming involved. Shortly after I did this, I became pretty unnerved over the inital upsets(Albert refers to) and some visiting troll attacks that I vowed to leave. However, I  did check in from time to time and it became very clear that Albert took no nonsense and did not back down in his effort to clear and sort the 'glitches' in the forum ... I returned. I just wanted everyone to know that we have a really GREAT group here and if visiting trolls upset and cause trouble in the future you can count on Albert to fix it up. Dont just take off like I did, as what Albert has created here is the fantastic opportunity for all that visit to become informed, prepared, involved if they so wish and able to help and support each other, including all of those others we reach out to. This is truly a wonderful gift that Albert initiated... to be shared by us..THANKS Albert  Thumbs Up

when i first heard about avian influenza i didnt know any thing about it ,it was off my radar,in finding this site i got informed, albert and the posting members created a balanced and solid information base. i do believe if one life is saved by having been mentaly or phiysicly prepared,or even warned ,than a very good thing has been done......my family is much more prepared for,bf,hurricanes,or a national emergency,we are a little more self reliant...i wish i could post helpfull info but you all beat me to it :)....i am just one of many im sure who would like to thank this forum for all you are doing
The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself......FDR

I, too am a recent participate of this forum and have never even participated in any forum at all, so this site is a very big deal to me personally. I was terrified when I first started reading about BF,  and all of ya'll have  helped me thru the stages, helped inform my loved ones (they think I am crazy, of course) but ya'll have given me vital life saving information that I would not be able to obtain anywhere else, believe me I have llooked, Thank you Albert for being a true leader in every sense of the word, ridding our little word of trolls and boogeymen. Thank you fellow members for all the sage wisdom, practical advice, and just good ole talk about an upcoming and imment situation that will affect all of our lives. I am a calmer person now that I was 2 months ago, I am most certainly a better prepped person and I appreciate each and every day now more that I ever have in all of my 50 years on being on this great planet Earth

Simply amazing.... I just don't know what to say.   Thank you.   
 
This forum is very unique in the way that people seem to care for one another.  You won't see this sort of thing on other forums.  You, our current group of members, is a group that a lot of people can learn things from in life, aside from prepping lol.           
 
Thanks again.

Well Albert ya' know we have a little history between us and the fact that you allowed me and  the others to still bring our personal views to the table regarding our faith in God has been wonderful.

I think many people need to prepare their family's food sources as well as their spiritual needs.

If the worse happens to some of us and some pass on, it will be comforting to know that they have made to choice to trust God and were prepared to go to their eternal homes in Heaven.

Some have jumped on me with both boots regarding my statements.  Well it was upsetting but hey we all have different thoughts and concerns.  As long as we can agree to disagree and remain civil to each other, our forum will continue. 
 
Just like a big family, sometimes there are fights, but we all continue to support each other no matter what was in the past.
 
Thank you Albert for you insight and valued time that you share with us all to make this all work out.  Keep up the good work my friend.
 
God's got his hand on you and by helping others you will have a pretty cool place waiting for you when your time here is through.  The ones who go before you will be waiting with open arms to greet you in Heaven when your time here is over.
 
I'll be the one with the rubber chickens, raincoat, and mask standing over to the by the side. (joke from a previous post)  LOL

As for me and my house, we shall trust the Lord.

Albert,
   Thank you so much for all you have done.
I first learned of the possible severity of this pandemic flu from Oprah. Three things DR. Osterman said really hit me hard. He has food stored for 3 months. The severity of a possible Pandemic flu like the one in 1918. The fact that there have always been many diseases that have killed millions and it could be at any time maybe this year or ten years from now, but there will be another one!!!!
Take this knowledge along with what the Bible says and add in the fact that there are so many people on the earth now, plus we no longer grow our own food, but everything we use is coming from all over the world.etc.,ect., etc., and you have devistation like we hace never known!!! Especially if you add in the earthquakes and all the other natural disasters. WHEW!!!
I said all that to say this. You have done one heck of a good job and probably saved at least 30 people in my family alone. (Plus the ones I may help in the community.) I could not have been this prepared without the work you have done and the input of all of you who have added so much!!! There is peace with being prepared and I thank you all for showing me that.
 
May God bless you all.

Thank you Albert, You have done a great service for the world. Member contributions  not only keep us up on what is really happening, but have saved me countless dollars, time and effort on preps. I hope to keep learning. I certainly would not be as prepared as I am for the next disaster had you not started the train. I hope people realize that what we save now will be replaced on the self for someone who gets in a panic situation thus avoiding some early shortage.
My hope is the forum will stand and if or when an emergency is over we call all find our way back for "roll call"!
Thanks from the bottom of my heart.
And good luck to all!

I am hoping when this is over and the emergency is  long gone, we can just have a forum of whatever with this same group of people.   The subject matter is so dismal, but the company it keeps on this forum is awesome.

Albert: I want to join with the others to thank you so much for all you've done. I also want to thank you in advance for all that you will do, because I know you won't stop until it's time to stop. I count on that. I can take that to the bank. And I can and do appreciate you for being "you". No one else could have done this. D

Thanks, Albert !

rule # 1 to forum users. do not react to trolls,  hit report button! I would have this running as a banner or something like it. the last one (Rovias) I almost could not contain myself from replying.....thanks again Albert.

I think that on this forum we ought to have an Albert fund. I would  like to know what you need Albert, is there anything we can do for you as a group, Albert do  not be afraid to ask.
This forum is our lifeline in a way........Thanks,  Paul M.

A Bible verse that is just perfect...... for the situation.

Thanks Fastcard.   You guys have done more than enough.  The support on this thread is far more than I deserve.  I'm sure you know by now that I could never accept money.  Again, and as funny as it may sound,  the kind offer itself means more to me than any money.  Smile

Albert,  The others speak my mind.  Even if the Avian Flu never turns into a pandemic, the skills we have all learned on this forum will hold us in good stead for any catastrophe.  And our level of confidence to deal with problems ourselves has increase tremendously.  It is a good feeling. Thank-you.   Here are some flowers for your hard work!.
