Highly recommended. P.S. To anyone who cares to know, I am going to be reuploading all of the content from this blog that I still have (plus more content) to my own server so that they can't be taken down by the hosting website any more. Let me know what stuff you want me to re-upload first, because this is going to be a project that takes weeks and I don't know where to begin. 5 or 6 years worth of material is difficult to sort through.

I had all the Life's A Beach series and lost them in a hard disk crash. It would be great if you could upload them all again. I'd be truly grateful.
