    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!|

    Can I just say what a comfort to find a person that actually knows what they are talking about on the web.
    You definitely know how to bring an issue to light
    and make it important. A lot more people must look at this and understand this side of
    the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular because you definitely possess
    the gift.

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. But just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field. Very good blog!|
