  Blaine was like a loyal employee to me for this bid. He went well beyond the call of duty and prepared a written recommendation for me, which was like having my own personal consultant for this project!

I wish there was more than a 10 that I could give him for helping me out.

Thanks Blaine, will post other projects to you.
