lol, yah I remember that site from many moons ago. It went downhill pretty quickly. I only have two fish tanks. But I still have about 60 snakes and various other critters. I think that was before I even wrote the book.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
