    5. But one slight problem with calling it an urban legend. I worked in a hospital 22 years ago and there was a medical chart in our files for Lemonjello. so no it is not an urban legend. I had the chart pulled, turned out it really was a real person, the boy was a teenager by then.

      With a name like that, and parents that would bestow it, this is not particularly surprising.

  10. I simply had to thank you so much all over again. I am not sure the things I could possibly have taken care of in the absence of the entire tricks contributed by you over this area of interest.

    It was actually a frustrating condition for me, however , taking note of
    a specialised fashion you handled the issue took me to jump for joy.
    I am just happy for the service and as well , hope that you really know what a great job you have been putting in training others
    by way of your web page. Most likely you have never encountered any of
    us.

  24. We had a really bad hail storm last year and the neighborhood was swarming with roofers looking for work... Usually I waive them off saying we rent, call the owner. We had one ask us to pass his card along. I didn't think much of it and tossed it on the counter. Later that night when I was picking the kitchen up after dinner I noticed his name was Albie Damm.
