Hello and welcome! If this is your first visit please read this note.

Read the Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy. Before asking questions in the comments, it is extremely important that you read the Comments Policy.

Many new visitors jump into asking questions that have already been answered, or answers that can be applied to their situation, and in many cases already explained in my books.

So, please consider reading my books first.They are an easy read and it will save us all a lot of time. The books are inexpensive and are available from Amazon. Or save a few dollars by borrowing them from Online Libraries. Both books have had significant updates in 2017.

Thank you for dropping by.
