The Puddle that became an Ocean...

Hi Valerie and others,
could you please clarify a little how the Bible Puddles were divided..
Was the original (2012) ASL Bible Puddle, Nancy's translation only - or did
it include Ron Detloff's?
and was that original Bible Puddle divided into 2 or 3 - because now there
is the ASL Bible Dictionary, the NLT (Nancy's) and Ron's..
I'm sorry to bother with my question, but it needs to be accurate - because
I have the number of signs the ASL Bible Puddle had in 2012 - and I'd like
to get a number of what it is today 2014 - but I can't unless I see
which Puddles I should be adding together, since they have been divided.
Thanks for your patience,
