No, now seriously, I really appreciate all your tips,even that in some occasions
they seemed quite demanding. But I thank you deeply for your good intentions, I see you are a perfectionist and I don’t mean any offence by that, its a compliment.
I wont reach your level but Ill do as best as I can.
Thanks a lot!!.
