  1. I hardly drop comments, however i did some searching and wound up here "ISO suggested links for consumers".
    And I actually do have a few questions for you if you usually
    do not mind. Is it simply me or does it seem like some of these responses come across
    like coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting
    at other online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new
    you have to post. Would you make a list of all of your
    communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
