my timeline

fotolia_48442445_Subscription_XXLThis page will be used to document the whole process. When I do something. When I submit something. When the next task is complete. I’ll include costs for those that have a cost. This will help me track, as well as, others see what the whole process entails.
NOTE: Costs I include might vary from what you may pay or what you’ve paid in the past.
