  1. Thank you for the blog post. Johnson and I have already been saving for a new book on this topic and your short article has made us all to save our money. Your thinking really responded to all our inquiries. In fact, a lot more than what we had known just before we came upon your excellent blog. I actually no longer nurture doubts plus a troubled mind because you really attended to all of our needs in this post. Thanks
