“A man that can tell you the day you slept with him is very rare. But virtually all ladies can tell you and even add the very words you said while the bedmatic entertainment was on. If a set of events involving an entity of such magnitude could be well captured, quote me ‘women are the best historians’.”

  1. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your
    site. You have some really good articles and I
    think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of
    the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange
    for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Many thanks!

  2. I do consider all of the ideas you have presented in your post.
    They are really convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for newbies.
    Could you please extend them a little from subsequent time?
    Thanks for the post.

  3. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for
    my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
