    • Hi Diana. I am almost finished Phase 5. I’ve biked 155 km in all. I think I will continue, since this method has worked so well for me. I am thinking of shifting to England and matching my trip to a book about haunted pubs. The drawings do make quite a collection and I have learned so much!!!! Thanks for commenting. Jane

    • Hi Katie. Thanks. You made my day! At least there is something great about having an uncooperative tooth… your office!!!! Jane
