    I'm still not used to when they answer as say "Van Dyke's, a McKenzie company, how can I help you?" It's gonna take a while :D

    I know I still do a double take at the catalog when I order from the McKenzie book and get a Van Dykes operator. LOL

    This was likely already discussed in an earlier post but what's the deal with 2 catalogs? Why would there still be a Van Dykes catalog (I just got my new one in the mail). Wonder why they wouldn't make just one big kick ass McKenzie catalog..although it's pretty thick as it is now. Maybe that's why.

    individual companies owned by the same investment group. If a company's stock is to stand on it's own merit, it has to be a separate company. I'm sure it's illegal to cross books also. That would be similar to money laundering.
