Answers to Questions
I invite comments please and I will reply in a reasonable amount of time.If you need help, comment on most recent review of mine and you must include your Epinions.com review item (place, item, etc.) and the link to your review in question (because I rate many reviews and I can't remember every review that I read) or I will not reply, thank you.I will check for comments at least once a week now...leave a comment (on most recent review of mine with link to your review) with any concerns and I will do my best to point you in the right direction.
Take care and happy writing.
