  • A friend (a member of my 30 member “blog group”) introduced me to your site – so far you’ve provided many, many articles that are of interest to me, and should be of interest to others (some times, there are too many articles, two or more times a day, without adequate time to read them!). The frustrating thing is that some of the info provided should be (must be) covered by the MSM and, of course, isn’t. At any rate, so far, so good, keep up the necessary good work, and the word will spread via me, and others. Best wishes.
