Billy, Thank you! These are three truly empowering observations. I've had to learn Un-Rule #2 the hard way, and at the expense of several years.

Bradford, I'm happy to be an instrument of empowerment. And you're not alone in the neglect of #2, since believe me, I Have Been There, and speak from the um, deep well of experience...
