    Someday I am going to attempt to do one of these. Your directions and I mean yours and all of the other people who show us how to do things are really very good. I am one of those people who needs to have everything shown step by step. I am one of those people who when she gets a new board game, my dad would have to explain the rules to me because I couldn’t understand them. I used to say ‘Well, if they had said it like that I could be playing it by now’. My dad passed away last week so I can’t ask him anymore and that makes me sad. Whose going to explain stuff to me? You are! Thanks for explaining everything step by step so even us geeks who don’t have dads to explain them anymore have someone who will. Thank you.
