    Probably not appropriate for the P & R board, but I thought I would give some insight into my business life. K & F Electric's the company I worked for/partially owned during my 50 year construction career. John Fritz in these videos is my brother. BTW, I ran the original job when the rubber bladder dam was installed on Tempe Town Lake.

    40, did the OdySea people tell you that Dolphinaris would be built while you were working for them?

    No, probably because I didn't work for them.

    While I agree with their point, putting exclamation marks is second only typing in all caps in terms of annoying ways to convey your message.

    It will be interesting to find out the cause of death. The first dolphin died of a rare muscle disease. This one also may be unrelated to living in the desert much to the dismay of opponents to the place.

    No. That was another Dolphinaris lie.

    It was a fungal infection, probably valley fever.

    This company is evil.
