Participated in the virtual live classroom led by Kathleen Ortiz on query. Very interesting with some tweeks on querying that were new to me. Enrollment includes a query critique to be sent to her. This was an interesting learning technique as well.

Absolutely I'll share specifics. A tad difficult to take notes, because she was talking and there were graphics as well, However, after a week or so they send the entire video package to me and I can recollect more. I'm going to parse my four pages of scribble :smile: and post tomorrow.

Some people who do seminars ask that people not give away EVERYTHING they say in blogs, or online, since that's giving away for free what they make a living teaching.
