    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But
    imagine if you added some great images or videos to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this
    website could definitely be one of the very best in its field.
    Superb blog!

    Hi Shelli.
    Thanks for sharing!
    I realize it was a joke about sleeping inside the electric bear fence that is designed for food storage, but I have actually slept inside electric fences in AK. I sure sleep better in them!
