Pretty place, the weather looks wonderful! 
I think this site is cute, and, for someone sitting and freezing in the New Mexico desert, just taking a walk through the green parks with palm trees waving …

Lame and useless

This site is pretty lame.

This website is a joke. It seems as it is run by a high school dropout or dropouts. If you are going to keep this domain name at least put some effort …
