Tangentially education ...Way back in the dim reaches of time ... 2012 to be exact were asked about a checklist for compiling the information on a single person. I found the post around 2017 or so. You shared thumbnails of one that you used, but you declined to share as it was "a work in progress." I have looked at every checklist I can lay my hands on (and that's a lot of checklists), but none do what I need like yours does. Your blog showed up in my field of view again today (please don't ask how many entries I have open in tabs to read later. Lolol) Anyway, I was wondering/ hoping you had changed your mind on making that form available to your adoring public. :-) Nice to have run into you again.

Hi Susan,

The post you're referring to is at

I have not improved on this checklist for awhile. I do have a blank copy of it in a word processing file if you would like it. Or you could make your own based on my blog post. Email me at

All the best -- Randy
