  1. Keep posting stuff like this i really like it

  2. I found this post while looking for rock lyrics. Thanks for sharing will be sure to follow this blog regularly.

  3. Interesting concept. I’m not quite this adventurous yet, but I can believe of a minimum of 1 writer – Greg Crites – who does podcasts of his functions. It seems to work wonderfully nicely for him. And, while you mentioned, truly is another medium via which writers can connect to an extra pool of visitors. Cool stuff!

  4. You seem to want an honest opinion so I’ll give it to you. First of all you could have utilized a search engine or searched to find out if such a book existed. Secondly I believe if one does it would be gathering dust somewhere-it’s a large yawn of the topic-nobody cares and no-one would be interested. Sorry. I’m not attempting to become mean-just brutally honest. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself-recognize that you are just lonely and a workaholic and do some volunteer work and make some new friends. Senior homes are always looking for individuals to talk or study to the residents-it sounds like you’ve some stories you could inform them.

  5. very good information you write it very clean. I¡¯m very lucky to get this info from you.

  6. I love Emilo!
