  1. Good Afternoon!!! is one of the most excellent informational websites of its kind. I enjoy reading it every day. I will be back.

  2. The author of has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: If, after much work, you manage to recover something you thought was permaneantly deleted or discarded, you will discover it isn't as useful as you thought it would be. (See #22) Thanks for the info.
