    I love love this jacket. It’s very comfy and versatile. It’s light for not so cold weather and warm for chilly evenings too. It was more than what I expected! It did take a few weeks to arrive, but so worth it!

    I have seen loads of useful elements on your web site about computers. However, I’ve the opinion that laptops are still not nearly powerful more than enough to be a option if you often do tasks that require loads of power, just like video modifying. But for internet surfing, word processing, and a lot other frequent computer functions they are all right, provided you do not mind the tiny screen size. Many thanks for sharing your thinking.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your thoughts? I mean, what you say is important and everything. But its got no punch, no pop! Maybe if you added a pic or two, a video? You could have such a more powerful blog if you let people SEE what youre talking about instead of just reading it.

    Hi Luis,
    Can you please help us up here in our town of Pacifica up north in sf bay? Boys and Girls Club have not been open about their sudden decision for club closures in our local community and we are deeply worried about how this will impact the children and families including my own. Do you have any resources or information, legal contacts you can please share? Would you be willing to speak or share a comment in support of our cause? Please help us if you can. Your story means the world to so many! Thank you.

    From Serena
