SPECIFIC INFO (FAQ) THINGS TO EXPECT Index

 Index of FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions), “Things to Expect” , is under construction and therefore incomplete.  We are breaking down a single bulk file with tons of information.  Dividing it into comprehensive indexed linked pages.  Indexed by subject name, that will be listed in alphabetical order.  Some Pages will have multiple Index links pointing to them.  That is to accommodate  people that may have multiple idea’s of what key words or phrases they might choose to search by.

If you have landed on this page, use what is available as a link (underlined).  Or until we finish please go to the existing “Things to Expect” bulk master page. THINGS TO EXPECT BULK FILE  Just be aware you have to sift through a large file of information that is not very organized.  As we index a section it is removed there.  So the old file is at least getting smaller.
