If you are seeking an older man or a younger beautiful girl who can give you real love, I want to tell you a nice place --Put "Seekcou" and "gar" together, then you will get the url. a nice place for seeking age le ss love. Feel comfortable with the possibility of starting an age-gap relationship in a community where people think just like you. Leave behind the embarrassment and annoyance of "everything to everyone" dating sites. It is a focused community that goes beyond dating. With blogs, chat, instant messaging, and many other social networking features, seeks to evolve the concept of meeting people online.

paul emerton - half the time employees are put in positions where they cannot say no to bosses ie getting put in bad positions etc! greedy bosses and directors of companies that have ruined this country and caused so much stress on people! do u not earn enough profit to shut for one day then i feel very sorri for u! i bet u dont work it yourself either! probably expect your staff to while u take the day off!
