Welcome and hope the five different ways of doing the same thing do not confuse you too much!  My advice is to choose people to listen to that are as close to your zip code as possible.  You tube is great isn't it!  Oh, I hate to mention this but I must.  Some people really get excited when someone posts in all capital letters.  The gentle souls imagine it as you YELLING at them!   Strange huh.

tireman,
I wasn't familiar with Louisiville...So pulled it up on a map, I see you're just about 30 miles from Macon MS, home to bud1.  If you've been watching JP's video's, or have spent much time on this forum, you're probably familiar with Bud.  The forum has some great threads focused around the annual gathering at Bud's place.  He'd be a great resource for any new Beek getting started...You might want to drop him a PM and introduce yourself.  :)

Welcome to the forum....And Yeah...The ALL CAPS have got to go!  :-D
