Welcome Michael! This IS the place! Over time you will find those whose comments are extremenly informative and always a teaching moment for you and that you will want to follow.
Good luck in your endevours!


Political Correctness:
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rapidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
