I updated this page a bit.  

The focus for the journal is on efficacy for the property.   A robust journal is an excellent thing, but for PEP the required part is about determining the efficacy.  

I also added elements about harvesting.  

I spent about 45 minutes on the phone with raven talking about this about two weeks ago, and then another half hour on the phone with her on saturday.  And then about 20 minutes talking with jocelyn.   And about 15 more minutes with shawn.   So this is not a casual shift.  

Good?  Any other suggestions?
