It was pleasure meeting Ben as well. In fact, I made a FB post about itall right away and also included it on my Medium page:

Kate, thank you for all of your informative help with this newbie. Greatly appreciated. And the peeps in the Genius Room...I am blushing, tired from laughing, and floating on air. Thanks Y'all! :heart:
