      That seems like forever ago, doesnt it ? I've always loved meeting new people, even in an anonymous form such as this. I hope one day we'll all be allowed to converse the way we used to.
      Oh and BTW. Check out the blog on Chaves and tell what you think ?

      They have deleted every other single comment I have made.
      Tsk, tsk, they're slipping.
