Dear Dannon: thanks for the review. Does this make Sheila a nominee for a
Texas Oscar? Sheila can sleep now. she thought that perhaps this would be
the end of her acting career and she would be strapped to the wheel forever
and eternity.
Sean and sheila did a great job, but we have been so close to this project
that we started to wonder what shelf it would land on. I'm glad it is on
your teaching shelf because I think that was the intention. sheila taught
for 20 years and I think the repeat, repeat, repeat instructions came thru
loud and clear. Sean being the computer geek did all the tricks and special
Anyone that whats the video can order directly from us or thru Steve
Branfman. We met Steve in Charlotte and I'd do business with that guy any
ole day. He's no Texan but he'll do.
