Dave, you are an excellent teacher. I've learned so much from your videos (I'm a visual learner), and I appreciate that you provide the text/script for learners who learn best by reading. Your instructions are "pithy"/concise and the length of each video is about all I can absorb at one sitting (depending on the complexity) - Carol
