DOING THE JUDICIARY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY DIGITAL MACARENA:

12 Aug

Pass the Popcorn Please, Congressman Mel Watts said.

The Judiciary had just donned MEN IN BLACK shades for the Committees tutorial on what it takes to make a 3D movie, behind the scenes expenses lost as 2D IP, Intellectual Property, is stolen. Congressman Goodlatte notated this was a photo op destined to grab headlines. It didn’t. Nor did the hearing, sadly. IP is not getting the looksie it should be in a world where Kim Kardashian is popping out babies and Princess Kate trumped her by popping out a King.

People just aren’t cluing in that without Intellectual Property bills aren’t going to get paid- for tuition, for loans, for pensions, for insurances, for houses, for food, by anyone for anything. There is just too gosh darn much out there to district a Twitter brain world for using a Thesaurus for words like- piracy, theft, steal, take what isnt yours. Thesaurus is one of those vernaculars falling by the wayside in a warpspeed world of Technology, reality TV and billions being tossed around for ideas many of which go nowhere (other than into the privacy of our lives) but make big bucks for Titans tossing aside Century old traditions of Please and Thank You and Respecting that Commandment, of the Ten, that says “Thou Shalt not Covet.”

Congressman Goodlatte’s The Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet held back-to-back hearings the Thursdays before Summer Camp For Congress. Thursday July 25’s hearing was themed “INNOVATION in AMERICA: The Role of Copyrights.” August 1’s hearing was themed “INNOVATION in AMERICA: The Role of Technology.” The hearing of the 25th,  Sandra Aistars  Executive Director Copyright Alliance; Eugene Mopsik  Executive Director American Society of Media Photographers; Tor Hansen   co-founder Yep Roc and RedEYE distribution; John Lapham Sr VP and GC  Getty Images and William Sherak President  of Stereo D LLC testified. August 1st, Danae Ringelmann, Founder & Chief Customer Officer of Indiegogo testified along Nathan Seidle CEO of  SparkFun Electronics, Inc; Rakesh Agrawal, Founder & CEO, SnapStream Media; Van Linderg, VP, Intellectual Property, Rackspace; and the ringer, Jim Fruchterman, President and CEO of Benetech. Indiegogo is an open funding platoform where anyone can fund what they want, where people give money in exchange for perks. Indiegogo takes 4% of funds raised.

A few weeks earlier, HR 2655 passed in a vote of 6-2. HR 2655 is the Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act of 2013. Copyright Abuse was part of the Judiciary conversations on the 25th and the 1st. The  Register of Copyrights Office is convinced Small Claims Court is the forum in which Creatives should pursue claims for Unauthorized Use of an Creative’s 2D Intellectual Property Rights. Berne Convention signators have successfully move to Dedicated IPR courts with IPR Judges and specialty lawyers educated in IPR, Intellectual Property Rights. The countries America chooses to perceive as Third World countries “got it” that taking someone’s IP Intellectual Property without their permission is Criminal- call it Piracy or theft or stealing- the action is the same- taking what isnt yours with the outcome being consistent- Criminal Behaviour.

General Counsel’s advising Legislators are still using college professors as experts on Intellectual Policy. Something to be said about college professors worldwide… they are like two tier tourist buses around the world- DC, UK, France, everywhere…. Seen one, seen ‘em all. To create policy, speak to the everyday artist trying to pay bills… like the Arlington Alliance in Jim Moran’s backyard over at the Crystal City Underground Mall, Torpedo Factory in Alexandria and elsewhere…. ask artists in China, in India or better. Wait until the Smithsonians annual Folk Life festival and junket it to the Mall for the annual event showcasing cultures from around the world. Ask those artisans from foreign lands their experiences. Amazing. Legislators will learn that artists like professors around the world are the same. Professors craft policy from mountain tops in the Himilayas and artists lose their hearts to producing beauty in financially stressed worlds of communities that needs smiles.

Until then? Reporting for duty. Have Wit Will Travel.

John Lapham Sr VP and General Counsel for Getty Images explained to legislators that Getty Images, laying claim to being the first company to license images on the Internet processes over 200,000 images a day plus music tracks through Getty offices in over 18 countries. Copyright, testified Lapham, is the foundation of Getty’s business provided to their over one million customers. Lapham explained there is no total solution to protecting Arts Intellectual Property which Getty Images has up on line within minutes of images being taken by Artists who rely on their 2D IP from which to make their livings, a visual Lapham described with which to make the speed with which imagery travels these days. Lapham described Inauguration Day over the Capitol. The sun rose. Photographers were in place before the day’s sun rose. The Sun image was on the Washington Posts home page even before the sun crested. That is how fast, an Arts image is stolen, these days. Lapham testified Fair Use is abused most, balance and sources for resolution must be found.

Stereo D LLC started in 2009 post the popularity of Avatar, important to note, with that being a form of ‘flattery’ to some, imitation. To others? Poaching a good idea because it succeeds as a business model- different from Patent Trolling or Unauthorized Use of Copyright, the point of the hearings? Maybe. Excepting, Stereo D LLC didn’t try to pass Avatar off as their own idea, communicated William Sherak, president of Stereo D LLC, in his testimony. Quoting a famous New Jerseyian, Stereo D LLC did it their way, Men IN Black’d a bunch of legislators for a cool moment while the legislators watched Sherak’s Movie Moment in shades- a Rogue’s Gallery photo op moment that was destined to happen before Sherak explained to Congress how Studio D converts films through 3D’s highly technical labor intensive process drawing detailed line which is then hand painted in. 

Sherak testified movie making is not perceived as innovative, that the greatest films are the most pirated. 3D film making is new way to enhance the movie experience. Movie industry investment decisions are made on the basis of projected earnings hence  copyright holders need strong copyright. Sherak’s opinion was that legislators must keep in mind all kinds of people are impacted by his product. 3D gives artists new careers along with employing tertiary and secondary industries through their biz, such as screen makers, projection systems, even food concessionaires.  Sherak said, protecting copyright IS attacking piracy.

Congressman John Conyers acknowledged that Copyright promotes the National economy. Conyers asked if Congress should take a measured approach when reviewing Copyright Law. Conyers noted Arts Creators need more money since they are getting less. Conyers asked for more recommendations before departing the hearing. Committee chairpeople and GC’s, general counsels, are most likely to stay the whole of a hearing. The others come and go as need be.

Aistairs from the Copyright Alliance testified the Founding Fathers, perceiving the situation Copyright finds itself in today, would approve, would be pleased, further explaining, must look at why artists put work out publicly. Aistairs, argued Copyright Law needs updating to meet current needs. Real artists argue current  needs must be rolled back to meet Copyright Integrity.  Aistars spoke up best practices is for artists to be versed in technology ‘loving’ to see artists in areas outside of music. Aistairs did agree a quick efficient way is need to respond to violators of copyright online, using the DMCA as an example. The DMCS is regarded differently by working artists- better to prevent than to spend hours, possibly futilely against a violator knowing working artists must evaluate Time v Return.  

Congressman Chafetz focused questions on Hansen. Hansen started his business in his garage. Chafetz wanted specifics of the value of being on radio. Hansen explained music is sent to programmers who program. Chafetz argued the value of Internet radio must include paying artists. He wants artists getting paid. Hansen said the ease with which music can be shared. He wants artists being compensated.  Hansen said non legitimate sources of music are issues to not allow easily done, taking time to point out the US does not pay out royalty over the air. The money is held offshore.

Eugene Mopsick expressed his concern over Fair Use, stating that everyone’s figured out how to make money from photography. The number one filer for Copyright protection? Photographers, more than other areas of the Arts. Mopsick felt more positive than registering on line is to create a copyright office link form so that a photographer within a work flow will be able to file as shooting eliminating the need to have to go outside to register keeping in mind statutory damages will be locked out if an image owner’s copyright is not registered prior to filing a claim. Sounds all well and dandy excepting a working photographer would explain the reality of the edit steps in the process of dumping images from a card then batching to load with the data of Name, Date, location and involved parties- a step down before photos are filed with the editors themselves let alone with any registering entity. Sounds good… would sound better if testimony matched reality.  Mopsick wanted Orphan Works addressed. Mopsick neglected to explain to Legislators how Technology is creating Orphan works of images that are sent out containing Ownership Metadata. (Hang in there, an online idiot proof tutorial is planned)

Congresswoman Judy Chu pointed out Fair Compensation for everyone.

Congressman Deutsch is a champion of the Underdogs of Art, statement bombed the hearing with maybe a question here or there and a statement read along the lines of ‘Not to forget about lesser known creators whose work wont appear in magazines etc… the names we don’t … that copyright has to be rooted in Tech Control and how not to pick favorites or to open copyright to new avenues of theft…’ Deutsch reminded hearing attendees many of the Founding Fathers were inventors themselves, that while America exports a lot, one of America’s strongest exports is its Intellectual Property, providing goodwill overseas. Deutsch acknowledged the content and technology are not lock with the goal of a nation is to grow the pie fairly and not fight over the piece they got. Globally, communicated Deutsch, Artists and Photographers are goodwill for America, promoting her overseas.

Congressman Goodlatte’s questions solicited opinions for how the Founders would perceive the situation today, asking opinions are arching issues for the Committee. Goodlatte took credit for crafting the law allowing people to share movies on Facebook, he said, a step that enhanced the social experience without clarifying if or what safeguards he installed for Owners’ Copyright protection.  It was agreed there are iconic impacts for both sides. A Copyright “central” needs to be found. Once, that Copyright Central was the Berne Convention. And then along came Technology with interested parties wanting to push the envelope in their direction.

August 1st, Danae Ringelmann, Founder & Chief Customer Officer of Indiegogo testified along Nathan Seidle CEO of  SparkFun Electronics, Inc; Rakesh Agrawal, Founder & CEO, SnapStream Media; Van Linderg, VP, Intellectual Property, Rackspace; and the ringer, Jim Fruchterman, President and CEO of Benetech.

Bookshare is a non profit that scans books into files, Braille, that can be read aloud. Fruchterman impressed himself with his rhetoric on Title 17 Sections 121 and 107. Section 121, Limitations on Exclusive Rights: Reproduction for Blind or other people with Disabilities; Section 107,   Limitations on Exclusive Rights, Fair Use. Fruchterman talked how he revolutionized books for disabled people, able to provide books for ½ price of what it cost government. Fruchterman testified the Silicon Valley Model is to give Intellectual Property away for free, making money through advertising. Most of America does not live in Silicon Valley. In the world of Small Business, giving a hint or a tip or a free cupcake is called a Loss Leader. Something comes back, hopefully. Except when it is taken by Silicon Valley expensive suits testifying on Capitol Hill before Congress. The only comeback it seems is to the Suits- Salary? Almost $300K and a boast that the Department of Education gave him $6.5 million grant this year, failing to mention that amount has been coming in for several now, while individuals IP is being taken without compensation.  Fruchterman’s emphasis on helping disabled people is disingenuous. Stealing from one disabled person to help another is not justified nor Fair Use moreso with all the latititudes and Tax benefits open to a disable person. Yes, disabled people are artists and innovators and inventors too. They are entitle to own their IP and profit from it. Disabled entrepreneurs want to be self supporting and as much like someone else as they can be. No one has appointed Congress God for them to facilitate abuse of Fair Use under claims of helping disadvantaged by Silicon Valley Slick Willies unless Congress decides to judiciously see through the Silicon Valley capers like Silicon Valley testifying he is NOT trying to make a profit.

Fruchterman boasted how his library is growing, how the community he serves I mostly dyslexic and brain damaged. Fruchterman testified his dream is to move away form being a primary source hoping he will convince publishers to move away from Copyright, claiming that Fair Use is a lab for disability, boasting he has a great track record of making money for his stake holders, as well as himself, judging by the cost of his suit and tie and salary, for Bookshare alone. Fruchterman overlooked telling legislators Bookshare is the dba that Benetech is doing business as and that Benetech is actually part of ….. which is part of …. And that he had achieved a $30 million grant payable over …. Years…. And say what? If the author Fruchterman, claiming Sections 107 and 121, because he felt no need to pay royalties to was disabled? The stakeholders were making money…. That’s all he cared to share… Legislators didn’t think or know to ask….

Nathan Seidel put his faith in do-it-yourself makers and crafters for opensourcing solutions from. Seidel recommended putting money in to development. Seidel’s experience with anti-piracy steps is a waste of time to sue infringers and for defense of patents encouraging, rather, to focus on innovators, stating innovation is the key, putting down the Trademark process as being irrelevant. The worst thing he felt Congress could do was create monopolies even wanting the number of years granted shortened believing, at least with technology, it will shorten the timeline to innovate. Released design files, he felt would encourage people to reverse IP, intellectual property, theft.  People should not be forced to share. The example was given by a witness that  NASA released a ‘problem’ it into OPEN TANK. People shared. Problem solved, an example of success from VOLUNTARY sharing.

Rakesh Agrawal, Founder & CEO, SnapStream Media described how his model records TV shows by facilitating searches within shows, best described, he said as a cross between a DVR and a search engine. Customers can search ten shows at a time, find a link, then copy the text just like searching on line, he said, before copying and pasting. KEYWORD…. Copying. Without the Content Creator’s approval would that not be a violation of Copyright Law…. Score ONE for the Artists. Technology? FAILING grade. Agrawal screened an example of Snapstream at work or tried to, teaching Congress an even better lesson about Technology- it can fail and will even in a hearing upon Capitol Hill. Agrawal screened a clip of Joel McHale and a montage of the words Tweet and Twitter being used . Agrawal used this technique for creating a clip focused on RNC, DNC, admitting competitors use his technology to “track competitors” for breaking news as not to be too far behind the 8 ball as news broke, somewhat similar, one could say to NSA algorithm charting of Citizen’s phone calls or stalking, as a judge might determine a man charting a woman’s life 24/7, when in reality what is being done is robbing people of traditional search methods.

Lindberg testified that tech and internet companies are content creators, reinforcing that Copyright includes software code to protect people, content creators. Some business models rely on widespread share. No acknowledgement was made these business models operate on an Opt In, Opt Out system. Taking of one’s IP is not an Opt In. It is something without boundaries nor business etiquette. Lindberg explained Rackspace was looking to build a platform. Everything was proprietary. Opensource controlled most of the Internet Rackspace was looking at. Openset was written, collectively and to go Open. Rackspace is Wary of computers making decisions for people stating quite clearly that Bots don’t understand human relations. Rackspace hires team they call their Front Line to prevent violations. The vignette was shared of how computer generated SpiderBots are accusing them of violating content they are using under license or ads they have the right to host point being a lesson that automated software cannot differentiate. The effort was made to express to Legislators to understand that algorithms, the hot spyware bandwagon advertising has piled on top of to study peoples habits for more Sell Sell Sell. Algorithms don’t replace people. Legislators were told clearly and directly that more changes, dissolutions to Title 17, Copyright Act, will make copyright more difficient, that content creators must be respected.

Gripes and groans the Witnesses shared were access to Capitol (indiegogo), shortsighted that publishers should allow for Braille companies (Bookshare), open source technology to create open phone without gatekeeper, speed at which technology charging is astounding 13 year old student has his own website need every tool to stay competitive. Lindbergs testified he is looking out for the next generation having invited kids to a conference where tutorials were disseminated to teach the kids to program and innovate

Congresswoman Chu asked Lindbergs if anti-piracy law is a waste of time though thousands in music industry rely on their Intellectual Property fro which to innovate? Going further, Chu asked What has current Copyright system impeded or not impeded? Her eye was mindful of  technological growth and innovation. The answers to the Congresswoman were insightful.

Congresswoman Chu was told the reality of Technology and The Arts- free share is giving your Arts voluntary and Knowingly; piracy is someones Arts being taken  involuntarily. As with ALL business, there are many models people then decide to follow. Some people want to retain exclusive control. Other people don’t know, don’t care or cant be bothered in that their Arts is their low maintenance pleasure. People gravitate to the choice that feels best for them at that time. Pandora allows share. Point made eloquently was that Innovation cannot be controlled noting it comes from the intersection of  both and that Legislators must take care to make sure Copyright law fully appreciates Content Creators rights to decide.

Congresswoman Chu is a rockstar for the Arts.

The Congresswoman asked for advice for photographers to fight abuse.  She was told that while companies must be responsive to their needs, it is impossible to police the whole internet. Trying to stop Google and other Search Engines and ISPs theft of 2D Intellectual Property, Identity and Commerce is like trying to stop water from rolling down a hill. Cant stop it. Examples are given of musicians turning to new models to make money ie. crowdfunding or youtube or such. The question to balance was not asked “HOW are they supporting themselves in the interim until they get ‘discovered’- who pays their bills, what debts do they have, are they living at home, do they have insurance, do they ‘crowd room’ (dorm), do they Goodwill their clothes…. That is where the Forward Looking statements of VCs testifying to Congress should have been asked… to hell with Algorithms, produce stats. Poll a room of hackers or Techies gathered to freehack ideas or write code. Its amazing to ask that ONE question of a speaker who has gushed about their Amazing New Idea if they are making money or paying bills. The room gets so quiet a pin can drop when they answer a deafening NO.

Congressman Goodlatte is blessed with good  jeans- teenage ones- he said keep his computer running faster and better. Seidel was asked if the decision to share is made by an inventor or by a law making them share. Ahem, Congressman, THAT IS CALLED A LICENSE which is the Intellectual Property Owner’s right to bundle. Seidel testified not pursuing patents is a choice. Seidel testified Patent Trolls are hurting innovation. There is more to the patent conversation that hasn’t hit the legislators ears yet- the failure of handsomely paid lawyers to keep clients updated on their investments. Law firms come and go and patents get lost because the USPTO fails to connect to the owner of the Patent.

There is even more to the conversation of Patent Trolling Legislators should have been pointed to and were not- Domain Squatting encouraged by ICAAN continuing to dilute a business person investment in to their innovation and Goodwill. Remember all those .coms that some people invested deep into when Dot.Coms first came out? Remember how “good businessmen” were snapping up Trademark names like Coca Cola or Pepsi, for example, then waiting for the Corporate Entity to need that domain hoping for a re-sell kill? Legislators should have cried out along time ago on that one and on the explosion of  Dot Coms intentionally piggybacking on to existing Trademarks and Domains name by buying the XXX (porno) or Dot US or Dot Mobi, etc. Patent trolling is the least of  concern legislators must make decisions on for American Innovation to grow.

Lost in the conversation is the naivety of Patents. It was explained to me very well by an old Virginian I met at a USPTO event. He said to me that I got patent all wrong. His language was more colorful when it came to theft. He said publishing a patent ISNT about protecting your idea. S The old coot said publishing a patent is a BRING IT ON DO IT BETTER challenge. Darned if he isnt right. Would have saved me a lot of money sooner….

As for Patent Trolls, the coincidence of the Lawsuit Abuse Act rings well here. The problem with Patent Trolls is Lawyers. The problem with these lawyers is lawsuit abuse no different here than the New York lawyer harassing building owners with that one same handicapped client the lawyer sues on behalf of claiming violations of the ADA acts. Patent Trolling? Building access trolling. It comes down to what I say time and again. One model, many variations there of. Set up the model of addressing the problem so, like the White House or Congress, the institution moves forward no matter who the occupant of the chair, or in this case, the claim is. The reality is patent litigation and preparation is costly. Poll patents filed in a time frame to ask questions like how many made money, how much money was lost in the investment. Congressional eyes will open wide… they will get it why the ROC and USPTO are the only profit making entities of Government… its called the Dream. Trademarks, copyrights and patents are, too often, more expensive versions of Lottery tickets. What are those odd of winning… enough said…..

Congressman Smith elicited the reality of China stealing IP from America. Theft goes both ways. What does one do to a witness who admits he stole an idea from China who stole the idea from him, improving on his idea. Get guys together in a steam room, that would be a towel wacking moment followed with a Hi 5. But isnt theft, theft. Why would stealing from China be different than the accepted accusation from them? Why is the Friendship Arch in Chinatown not a theft of Chinese culture? Point being there is common ground. There is inspiration. Theft is when it is the EXACT item used, not upping the Chinese because they did what the Ol Virginian lawyer told me Patents are all about. Congressman Smith’s addressing Shell Corporations in Patent Trolling did not go far enough. Shell companies is a business problem in all industries- real estate, for example, all over DC and elsewhere, internet companies without a brick adress, pumpers and dumpers on Wall Street and Titans, again bringing the conversation back to one model and different occupants (like Congress and the White House). It isnt the Industry that needs changing, when it comes to IP, it is the lawyers abusing their craft. It is the lack of speedbumps or studies or statistics on the lawyers to see how they troll. There is the reality that some cases are legit- a patent is owned. A person hopes they wont get caught or that the courts will decide in their favor- does GOOGLE BOOKS come to mind- copying first, then asking questions second?

Congressmen Watts and Deutsch agree that people should be compensated for their workd. Deutsch said government should not be in the business of picking winners and losers. The Congressman does not want to see situation where innovation is threatened acknowledging there are Copyright holders whose work is sustained by Copyright

Congresssman Desantis said it is not protectionism to uphold the founding fathers. Desantis was realistic in reminding Committee that not everything works. Mandating the DCMA didn’t make things better. Witnesses testified Time and money is lost enforcing Copyright when they have to hire people to stop Copyright theft. There should be stumbling blocks at the get go set up by the Register of Copyrights. It made things work moreso than what Congress is aware of                                                                                     ( http://www.chillingeffects.org/search.cgi?search=electronic+frontier ) An example of DMCA is Random Houses notices to Google, over 20 filed in one day alone. And that makes Random House litigious in the interpretation of their action which brings the conversation back to Small Claims Court or IPR Courts with Criminal Oversight which would make Google, Search Engines and ISPs exactly what they are Serial Criminals when it comes to IP. Here is what one DMCA notice from Random House to google looks like (http://www.chillingeffects.org/dmca512c/notice.cgi?NoticeID=987544)

Now really, does Congress now see why Small Claims Court wont work when someone and entities hide behind Fair Use and Safe Harbor. 

Most important Legislators- while you are looking at the Dedacted Takedown notice…. SENT TO GOOGLE… question is how did it get from GOOGLE to being posted publicly on the Internet on CHILLING EFFECTS? Isnt there an expectation of Privacy in the DMCA or addressing theft? (www.chillingeffects.org/dmca512c/notice.cgi?NoticeID=987544)

Congressman Hakeen Jeffries notated the balance between content creator and protection, kumbaying for a mutually beneficial coexistence. Jeffries pointed out the hearing’s witness businesses exist because of others Intellectual Property. Lindsberg referred to Adam Smith who said Everyone is better in a Mercantile System where you trade. Trade means Commerce, exchange, and that word again, voluntary. Jeffries wants Artists not just the industry to make money. The Congressman said he doesn’t want Congress to make models in to law. A witness said he owns two patents himself ONLY because his lawyer wanted him to be defensive. This was important for legislators to hear. The USPTO and Copyright Office thrive on the ‘just in case you get stolen from you want your copyright so you can get statutory damages.’ America’s innovation moved forward because people added to property, not just were defensive about what they had.

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson got “IT.” There are different copyright concerns for 2D IP, ID and Commerce creators than there are for Technological IP creators. Lumping the two together is like putting the Fox in the Henhouse. Technology is raping the 2D Arts Creators for content. Technology is proliferating Identity theft when it bundles peoples data. Technology is Human Trafficking when it sells a person “online life” as sites like www.spokeo.com and www.123people.com do. The Congresswoman’s curiosity about filing on line resonates back to the Human trafficking. The faster data is accessible the easier it is to steal Identity and Intellectual Property. There is something to be said for making people walk in through front doors and go ‘hi y’all.’ The witnesses were forthright to the Congresswoman’s questions- Reynolds is the Wikipedia for patent solutions; Congress should crowd source ideas beyond closed doors; most small business don’t have voice and people can crowdsource at atpatents.com. An acknowledgement was made for Orphan Works registration a push being made to Congress by Technology Lobbyists. (https://carriedevorah.wordpress.com/2013/04/05/my-orphan-works-and-unauthorized-use-comment-that-i-filed-with-the-united-states-copyright-office/) There was no reinforcement of what the Good Gentleman Lawyer from Virginia said- Do It Better, Don’t Copy. A nod of the brow to Congresswoman Jackson for seeing Congress needs to go another route for technology.

There is NO arguing with the Witness reality that Business’ are built with a monetized return. Congressman Mel Watts said is best. There is no Free Lunch. Everyone makes a profit. The Congressman then went on to cite the Founding Father’s words. The goal is not to amend the Constitution. Discretion must be earned to know how to do it….. hint…. Just like Patent Trolling… it is in every industry. The ideal for the Judiciary would be to list industries, list abuses, and watch how, as we Crime Analysts describe it… watch how the piles grow. The pieces will fall into place. They already have. Just too many people talking to a very few ears who are wanting to make a difference and want some help how….. doing it… guiding, one blog post at a time….

Stay tuned…..  my list is growing…..  Mel, pass the popcorn, please….
