This is me and this is what works for me. There are certainly others here who may do it differently and certainly will give you some valuable input or advise. I'm a relative shoe noob when it comes to the many more experienced people here.In the end do the thing that works best for you. Good luck and please do share with us whatever you chose.Cheers,Dan
