Not everyone on Radio is an accomplished oratator/commontator.   We Hams 
are just regular spuds. <insert canned laughter here>

Seriously, not all of us are born with the 'gift of gab'.  Nor have we 
been to Broadcasters School to learn how to talk without injecting a lot 
of "uhh..'s", "Well, I...", "and, uhm...'s"  or "how about it, there?  
did you see that, there? look over there, there."

Look, guys.. it says right there on our license.. "AMATUER!"  No where 
does it say "professional radio operator".

Lighten up, have a great time, enjoy the wintertime conditions, quit 
-looking- for things to bitch about, and put a smile on yer face, and be 
thankful we're all in this GREAT Hobby of Ham Radio together!

73 = Best Regards,
