It seems as if [url=http://www.activebody.pl]kreatyna[/url] gives your body what it needs. While using M Stak I have increased the number of times at the gym per week AND did triathlon training at an increased level as well! The fatigue of the muscles workout seems to be reduced ...

Visual Vamp said...

Love your finds!!!
Send the chair to me, and Senor B is mighty cute.

Deborah said...

**gasps** Oh Linda, me loves! I had to pronounce his name out loud five times. All the Bad Boyz smoke, no worries. No room for the Asian?
Tsk. I have room in a newly emptied room...just sayin.

Brilliant website, I had not noticed coconutsandlimes.blogspot.com before in my searches!
Keep up the wonderful work!

Vix said...

Oh no, I fear my tardiness in getting here (with a "+1" pro-chair vote) may have such sad consequences....

Well, if that sweet little thing has gone off to another owner so be it. At least your house has the wicked pair of portraits as a not-at-all-shabby consolation prize!
