    Thank you and for your support. I have to admit that this post provokes a bit of melancholy in me. It is the last here at this site after 27 years. A lot has gone down in these pages in that time. But, I don’t mind change and challenges.

    When I decided to give up on a blog and create a subscription publication in 2011 (now three), it felt like I was loading everything I would need in a small boat and casting off from the shore into the unknown fully realizing that I could not return to the way it was. No regrets. Best of luck, Tom!

    It’s encouraging that your trepidation sounded a lot like mine does. But, there is something exhilarating about pushing out from shore.

    Best of Luck, Tom. Have enjoyed your comments and working with you on Wine retailers litigation. Now that I am retired, i will only go the free route, though…

    Well, you began before most of us and lasted a lot longer! But all things must pass. Good luck in your new venture.

    You can ignore me. You can’t ignore the truth. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=j7NTLZDd4tc&feature=youtu.be
    You can hate Russian vodka today, but ignoring the truth today, tomorrow you will “jump” with your new neo-nazis friends, and if for got sake you disagree with them it could be your last day.

    My mom was suffering from Type 2 diabetes and Lupus for over 17yrs. She tried many drugs but at last became dependent on saferoom and metformin due to the weakness and constant pains, She found that life was just sinking & there was no way of hope. Then she consulted Chief Dr Lucky for herbal treatments, Which she had been hearing so much about, After some couple of days taking this herbal medicine, Things started to change, The symptoms started to decrease and after 19 days of taking it, She became healthy and fully free from all the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes and Lupus. My mom’s life is totally different now. That’s why I decided to let everybody know about the wonderful healing of Chief Dr Lucky herbal, If you are having any health challenges kindly visit email [email protected] or WhatsApp +2348132777335
