I'm not sure I've started one in this group. I've started several in other groups, though.

Joseph, I've never seen you post a discussion or video. Your commentaries are good though.

Comment by Joseph P on October 20, 2013 at 3:04pm

Jeffrey, I'd suggest starting a discussion, in the section above this one.  A conversation like that would be a little difficult to hold in a linear format like this.  The nesting format of a discussion is much better for keeping things sorted and coherent.

Thanks for the lead.
