    Hi there! I visit your site and drop on it regularly back when Entrecard was still around. I hope we could continue to support each other and maybe meet in one of the future variants of Entrecard or Adgitize.

    Ooh, one zinger after another, Grandma! You are the queen of zing this week. Every one of these is hilarious. I chuckled the most at “No more seats left up.” The humor center in your brain was electrified (in a good way).
