I will keep this FAQ continuously edited, updated and refined with more detailed information as new questions come in from all of you.

I've written to you but you have not responded. What gives?

I have a very busy schedule and sometimes I get overextended and backed up with the responsibilities I have chosen. There is no way I can answer every email that comes in. Please do not take it personally.

Before writing to me I ask that you read through this FAQ to make sure your question has not already been addressed here.

Supportive comments are always welcomed and very much appreciated.
