I seldom leave responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here "22nd January - Cup Round".

And I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it appear like some of these responses look as if they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you list of the complete urls of all your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
