  1. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend
    who was doing a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me dinner
    because I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So let me reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to
    discuss this issue here on your blog.

  2. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do
    with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks
