Thanks for the edits. It's on the site, including the major delivery method. I also shortened the bio, but actually you hadn't ask me to shorten it the past...in fact another editor had asked me to add the final sentence that I just deleted!
Anyway, I hope this one helps some folks. If even just you starts carrying one, I feel as if I've done a good deed!
