  1. The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not
    fail me just as much as this particular one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, nonetheless
    I really believed you’d have something useful to say.
    All I hear is a bunch of whining about something
    that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy seeking attention. Thanks, Tawnya
