Hey School buddy just a hint if you want people to answer your blogs and chatter you should do a couple at a time this way we all can see and comment. By putting up ten or 15 in a row no one really gets a chance to go over each one. Maybe possibly do more of a forum thing with them. While I find them interesting you are only getting a few reads on each . Give us time with them instead of all at once. Just a thought "The Tortilla Guy"
