  2. I don’t usually write on blogs but had to on yours. You have a very distinctive writing style. A lot of people don’t have that touch, they just drone on and on in the most boring way. But not you – thanks! I don’t have time to read it all right now, I found this site when looking for something else on Bing, but I’ve bookmarked your homepage and will visit again soon to see the latest posts. I really enjoy reading about humor. The worlds needs more laughter I think. Don’t you agree? Please bookmark my comedy blog at http://www.DomainB.org and let me know what you think of it. Thanks again!
