Wrap-Up

These posts will contain copious amounts of information. I think in the future I just might provide the percentage charts. For this first wrap-up, I wanted to give you both pieces of information side by side. Since I give that info to you during the week in smaller posts, it is probably a better idea for the sake of brevity.

If you have any questions, shoot!
