  1. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and
    clear your head before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my
    thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

    Thank you!

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never
    wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone! http://catharinetse34479.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-2.html
