    I was at Hunter in 1943. I did not see this.

  2. After checking out a handful of the blog posts on your web page, I honestly like your way of
    writing a blog. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website list and will be
    checking back in the near future. Please check out my website as well
    and let me know how you feel.

    My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s
    to be just what I’m looking for. can you offer guest writers to write content available for you?

    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write
    related to here. Again, awesome web log!

    1. Thanks! If you’re interested in writing a guest blog, send an idea. Unfortunately, this is all a labor of love, so there’s no pay involved, but we’d be happy to promote.
