Thank you for requesting me. However you have set out 5 questions and one very open-ended question wanting step by step time spans.

Unfortunately, you have valued this question at one of the lowest rates and it is a loosing proposition for met to give you these vast amounts of professional information.

This is how I make my living and we don't seem to be on the same page regarding the value of my time and I will opt out and allow another expert to assist.

All the best.
