  1. Finally, I found the information I was searching for. I have been doing research on this subject, and for three days I keep entering web-sites that are supposed to have what I am searching for, only to be disappointed with the lack of what I wanted. I wish I would have located your web-site quicker! I had about 30% of what I was looking for and your site has that, and the rest of what I needed to finish my research. Thank you and I will report back on how it goes!
