    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me just as much as this particular one did. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read through, however I actually believed you would have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
