  1. Should probably find an alternate source, since Megavideo was shut down, and the owners arrested..

  2. nline dating site, has made its first match in both the world of online dating and in business.

  3. Now this is dirty stuff 😀

  4. What a load of shite. clicking on a link presents you with random websites such as groupon, couponsite, etc. no actual link to a documentary. Is it worth the hassle going through this type of commercial crap just to view a documentary!!!???

    Tried numerous times and this website FAILS to deliver what it promises. Awate of time. Don’t bother.

    • Hitting play the first time takes you to a commercial and the second time to the documentary.  In red print it talks about this inconvenience.  The doc was worth it!!!

  5. I leave a lot of comments on a lot of blogs each week – but there is one situation where I rarely leave a comment – even if the post deserves it.Good work

  6. had a good night sleep, first time in a few days….. no hangover 😀 gonna just tidy up today and watch some movies <3

  7. We’ve just discovered the greatness of organic farming in our own backyard, I have to say potato soup is our favourite of the month. I found a website dedicated to just potato soup recipes, which is quite amazing when you think about it. There’s a website for anything and everything nowadays it appears!

  8. Thank you for your great post! It has been extremely insightful. I hope that you will continue posting your wisdom with us.

  9. Cheers. I was searching very much similar to the info.

    • What a crude & pathetic marketing excercise that was for your low-rent, tawdry website.

      Don’t your realise such tactics are counter-productive? Not only do you piss people off but it just shows that you must be really desperate to resort to posting inane comments simply to include a web link. No respectable and legitimate would do this.

  10. Searching on Google i then found your blog. I will spend some time to read throught it! 🙂
