    Sometimes it’s hard to realize all the work behind coming up with a list such as yours. I’m bookmarking this post, ‘cuz it’s really a lot of info that I can’t quite process right now. So I’ll be back later. To me, it’s been rather difficult to come up with ideas on topics to blog about. I guess I’d call that blogger’s block. But with this post, I have found inspiration.
    Thnx and keep up the good work.
