  1. We stumbled over here from a different page and thought I
    may as well check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you.
    Look forward to looking at your web page again.

  2. Today, I went to the beach 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!
