I now almost regret my usually high ratings I give to presenters here as that makes my "stupendous" grade here have less value. I have the inclination, but, regrettably, not the time, to go to an on-line thesaurus to look for more superlatives. This has been the one session that had the most per$onal value to me, so I was particularly happy that it was first class.
