  1. Hi would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker
    then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable
    price? Thank you, I appreciate it! http://bing.org
