Things change faster now in weeks, than they used to in years. Clients often ask us why we do not send out e-mails more often. Simply because if we did we would be sending you notices many times each month, cramming your inbox. Instead , we post frequent updates on our website Use the search feature in the top right hand corner to find specific information.
