  1. naturally like your web site however you need to take a look at
    the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with
    spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to
    tell the reality nevertheless I will definitely come again again.

    • Excuse me? I hold a degree in Journalism from a very prestigious college in New York City. I VERY highly doubt that there is a single spelling error ANYWHERE on this page. You, on the other hand, should take a look at your grammar and punctuation. You began with a run-on sentence, no capitalization, no punctuation, etc… shall I go on?
