It took us awhile to get these up, so #1 and #2 are coming back to back (sorry, we are still working out this A/V stuff!). On that note, the audio and video are not perfect, but since the content is extremely generous and very useful, we are sharing it anyway. Oh, and we PROMISE to get better at it. Thanks to Doug and Alex for this and everything else you do for us – we couldn’t do what we do without BLG!
