Hi Valerie,
Thank you for your answer - no I wouldn't attempt to count all
SignWriters! I know that task is impossible - mainly it's the Active
Literature Puddles that I would like to know where possible - but it's no
problem if there is no answer to the number of people using the US lit
puddle - i will just state things as they are - that we do not know, it's
not a problem.
Thank you!!
Maria
