Thanks for the comments. At least you can catch up. The discussions on these threads are enhancing what was said in the past. So start read these backwards. From 19 back. Note I ask a question on a topic and on the lower case letters, I answer to you can read these and benefit. We all learn new stuff all the time. But reading this thread, is the Cliff notes of discussions in past, with refreshed/new information added. That way you can catch up in a few months and still know more than you could have learn in three years. I was trained with yes or no answers. It took me many years to learn what I now instruct in weeks. Reading these, seeing the points made, will help you catch up faster. I want you to see what I see on coins. When you achieve that, then you know your are getting it. Thus my posts are there to help you see, not just something to read about. I feel this is a lot better way to learn. Soon you will be helping others as well.


As far as Emails, go, you need a few more numbers on the post to qualify for that. But the best way to get a direct answer is to start a thread with a question of what you need to know. Thus not only I may assist you, but others can also learn more also. But read the links on CoopHome first and see what blanks are not covered yet with your coin information. (All benefit from new ones questions. Sometimes even trained ones will help fill in a blank or two) So ask a specific question and we'll help you with these. I often refer to these as "Questions you've not even thought of before, and the answers to them."
