    Great hearing from you Mark and Melissa! Great interaction brings out the best in both of you. Melissa, you have so much good common sense that I’m just beginning to realize how much you know. Lots of basic grounding to get this Nuture, when we may say that as adults we may have missed the boat. It’s out there and good news folks.
