  8. My family members every time say that I am killing my
    time here at net, except I know I am getting knowledge daily by reading such fastidious posts.

  9. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
