  1. Thank you for some other informative website. The place else may I am getting
    that kind of info written in such an ideal approach?
    I have a project that I am simply now running on, and I have
    been on the look out for such information.

  3. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
    structure of your site? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little
    more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
