      Thank you Kostas,

      I agree –"in complete agreement with a statement."– both your sentences below
      and the previous email message.

      Sorry the wording of the words after that, quoting:
      "'You're telling me! '(the dictionary defintion of this vernacular English:
      informal used
      to emphasize that one is already well aware of something or in complete

      agreement with a statement.)"
      – in the rest of my reply was rather pithy –i've always been really busy–, and
      pithy (or terse or dense) language is quick for my own perhaps–vain attempts to
      articulate deep points, but pithy (or terse or dense) language isn't much good
      for readers who haven't already 'seen for themselves' what one is talking about,
      such as who are on a part of or a different learning curve.
      This is why personal face-to-face communication is so much better communication
      –one of the many reasons why.


      Biggest best wishes to all,

      Jason Stewart
      —in practice (at the moment in summer season) in the nature farm,

      Hi Jason,

      I did not mean to "tell you" - I think sometimes, I speak/write to hear my self
      speak i.e. to give orders to myself, certainly not to anyone else.

      We all do the best we can, and we should be thank full for what we are able to
      accomplish.

      Kostas
