My sincere thanks to Jeannine Moser who had been so encouraging, and working with me through day and night since the start of this web, Dec 2011. Without her the web won't be done until my death.
Some of my best designs were done at the 6 years Cathy Tang with me. Without her I was nothing, thank you.
