Thank you so much, Jeff Pearl for sharing this info here.  It was very kind of you to do so.  Admittedly, I am proud to have been included with Joe in Ken Harney's article.  He's one of the writers I admire most ... so it was especially rewarding.  

Thanks too to AR for holding such stature in our industry and social media, as well.  Without AR, there would have been much less chance of gaining Ken's attention ...
