icecold, I like the way you think especially after reading how you handle clients. 

  if you do "right" by the uncle, when he sends you a referral, they are going to be pre-disposed to trust you.     ALL: Stay tuned to learn more about careers via www.justcareerchat.com (under construc but should be up in near future" maybe Feb):  FA's, feel free to post there who can offer helpful/constructive info re: this re: career field although the site will cover all career fields (even morticians).  :-) HNY!

Nowadays most folks use computers to calculate them.
