Below you will find links to the three pdf files that Terry sent me. Below them I am going to post his links page into this post. Some of the links in the pdf files are not clickable. If clicking on them does not work you can copy and past them into your browser.

And here is the info from the links page. Formatting is not the best as it is copy and paste from Word.
