    Meridy's is very good about returns and exchanges, and I believe your first one is free. If you order a size that doesn't work for you, call them immediately and they'll tell you what to do. I had to...

    We use SimChart in my program. As far as liking it -- it is what it is. It can be a bit confusing, and almost counter-intuitive. My program was kind enough to set up a "Student Playground" where...
