Re: Discussion: Q3 Volume 37

Great job, everyone. We only call it an R here on the Forum. In the contest, it is a DNP (Did Not Place). In life, it is a try...congratulations. You did something, perhaps out of your comfort zone, that many others think of doing but never attempt. Study, read, and try again because you are in the...
