O.K-O.K.-I'm coming out of the closet! I have been monitoring your group for
about 3 weeks now and have paid close attention to the concrete,steel and
masonry threads.
I am a Deputy Inspector in L.A. City holding licenses in
Concrete,Masonry,Drilled in Anchors and Shotcrete. I.C.B.O.'s include
Concrete,Prestressed Concrete,Masonry,Structural Steel and Welding,Building
Inspector and attending school for Combo-Plumbing and Electrical.I've held
A.C.I. Field testing tech Grade 1 for 10 years and have a test date for
A.W.S-C.W.I  this summer.

Thanks to all of you for your valuable information and I hope you will
accept me into your group (even though I'm not an Engineer).
