I'm based here in the flatlands of NJ at 31E. Again, thank you for producing an excellent  course." Regards, Tom Stackhouse MD

Hi Rod,
I bought your course, and I'm absorbing it slowly (that's the kind of brain I have).  It's most instructive and enjoyable - thank you.   I have learned plenty, and expect that to continue." Mike Radomsky
