Thanks for the self-introduction. I personally find this sort of thing hard to do and you handled it well. Buyers and sellers will appreciate knowing more about you and how you work.

Jeff - It was almost impossible to do.  I don't like being on video.  But, it's so much better than my first attempts a couple of years ago that left me looking more like an automaton than a human being.

Hey Girlie!  Well, you don't need a 'private' review...this thing ROCKS!  Like Jeff, I have a difficult time with this and can't seem to get comfortable in front of the camera but, you looked like a pro!  Congratulations...a sure winner!

Christine, that was great - I have done so many videos, but this blows away most that I have done... (I'll drive to the ocean next time)... :-) 

Really, you should do that more often.
