I think you guys are great. You're just kind of a dream come true, really. When we were talking about doing this, it's really daunting thinking about trying to tie all these things together when you don't even know where to begin. So it's great that you guys put it all out there so clearly. You're very thorough. And I think you're really forthcoming about the reality of the undertaking. That's good, cause I want the full story.Mary R. | ADU | National City CA
