    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
    totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  77. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very
    broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  78. I’ve been exploring for a little bit for any high quality articles or weblog posts in this sort of house .
    Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this web site.

    Reading this information So i’m satisfied to exhibit that I’ve an incredibly good uncanny feeling I found out just what I needed.
    I such a lot for sure will make sure to do not fail to remember this web site
    and give it a glance on a relentless basis.

  79. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
    your head prior to writing. I have had a difficult
    time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!

  80. This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  81. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for
    me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful
    than ever before.

  82. Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My blog looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m
    trying to find a template or plugin that might be
    able to fix this issue. If you have any recommendations,
    please share. Thank you!
