    My favorite find is this blog:

    It’s about two good friends with opposite relationship problems found themselves single at the same time. As an experiment, they dated for 40 days.

  • TStrahlendberg

    I HAVE to try the eggplant recipe! Saw it so many times before and I am always really tempted to make it (as it is super easy as well) but in the end I end up with the classic/original eggplant in the pan. Which is exceptionally delicious when my boyfriends makes them!!!

    Is there a way you can build in an automatic reminder for making this for me? :p

    I am Lena Derick i am from United Kingdom, i want to share a testimony
    with everyone about how DR. OSEGHALE brought Joy into my life, me and my
    boyfriend have been dating for three years and we were living happily
    together and also planning to get married, one faithful mourning we went
    for check up because our wedding is very close and the doctor said i am
    HIV positive and my boyfriend is HIV negative because of this my
    boyfriend ask me to live his house and cancelled the wedding and said he
    can’t get married to someone who is HIV positive. i was very sad to
    know that i had HIV diseases and also my wedding was cancelled and i
    love my boyfriend so much that i will never let anything to break us
    apart, so i shared my problem with my mother and she told me never to
    worry and she help me to contact this great spell caster DR. OSEGHALE
    and he told me not to worry that my problem is too small and easy for
    him to solve, and gave me some instructions to follow which i followed
    accordingly, and he told me that he will help me cure my HIV diseases
    and help me bring back my Love within 5days if i follow the instruction
    he will give to me accordingly, after he has finish casting the spell
    for me he ask me to go for a check up in the hospital to confirm my HIV
    status and when i got to the same hospital which i was tested HIV
    positive i was tested negative and i was so surprise to see that i no
    longer have HIV diseases and i went and testify to him and he told me
    that in 2days time that my boyfriend will come looking for me again,
    2days latter i was with my mom and my little brother in the rest room
    when we had a knock on the door and when i open the door i was surprise
    to see my boyfriends kneeling down in front of my mom and my little
    brother asking me to forgive him and ask me to marry him again. and
    today we are legally married all thanks and praise goes to the great
