Please consider what to say at the end of your emails

Always appreciate your thoughts.  And this week I adopted your e-mail appendage.
If the moment is right when people say "save a tree" by using less paper, I ask them if they will drink diet soda to save a corn plant.   To me that is equally logical.
Kind regards

Hello Jim,
I just wanted to extend my thanks, and a very heartfelt applause (along with several chuckles and laughs!), to your comments.  You have hit upon a subject that has long irritated me much the same as yourself.  Quite often, people are much like Lemmings.  They will follow one another right off the edge of a cliff without a clue as to why!

Thanks for the post, the laughs, and addressing an issue that I feel as strongly as you!!   All my best...and keep writing!

Hi Jim,

One of the letter writers to last week's column ask "I'm looking for that book. One that describes the shoe press, the calendars, etc."  My recommendation would be Handbook for Pulp and Paper Technologists ( The Smook Book ) Third Edition by Gary A. Smook...

This book covers the full gamut of the pulp and paper mill, includes good general data and a lot of pictures and illustrations.  I buy them by the dozen and take them with me on overseas trips so that I can show clients actual photos of some of the types of equipment that I am recommending to them.  More often than not, I end up giving the book to one of the technical people in the mill - thus the need to buy them by the dozen.

I thoroughly enjoyed the bit about what to write at the end of your emails.  I especially liked the one about the zucchini on the porch.
