Thank you Peter and Liam. I appreciate your kind feedback.

I believe Farmer Burns' course was painstakingly done and was likely a huge undertaking with all the submission and counter holds etc. captured in photographs. In many ways it has stood the test of time and I still receive email inquiries about it now and then.

Kind regards,
Diane
