    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it
    out better?

  50. June 4, 2019 / 10:40 am

    Currently it seems like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  51. June 4, 2019 / 11:51 am

    I believe what you said made a ton of sense. But, what about this?

    suppose you added a little content? I mean, I don’t wish to
    tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean Win Tickets to Medley Festival July 20-22, Barrie, ON
    – CASIE STEWART is kinda vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s
    home page and watch how they write article titles to get people interested.

    You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people
    excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it
    would bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
