  18. do you have any advice for companies that offer travel packages to europe. This may be off beat, but i am going to attend the cannabis cup in amsterdam and am looking for any advice that would make things a little easier. Thanks.

  19. You Americans don’t know europe

  20. maybe a bit late now for you now, expex20, but i would advise using a specialist forex broker as they charge less than the front end currency exchanges at banks, airports and shopping malls in terms of commission, also if you have the 5000 usd currency, and the currency you want to convert it too now is at an all time low, then you might as well buy the currency. And if you dont spend it all you may be able to sell it later for a higher price. shop around for the best rate, dont just dive in 🙂

  21. @expex20 There’s conversion charts or even applications online for that kinds of stuff. Type in google “Currency Convertors”.

  22. pretty good video…Europe might be expensive but it well worth it! Country’s like Austria, Sweden, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Norway, Ireland and Swiss are the most beautiful places

  26. Besides, in my experience there is a dearth of trading in fantasy baseball. Why have your entire genius be based on the draft? Good luck.Reply # 50 JR Says: April 10th, 2009 at 8:54 am Someone should be jumping on Yusmiero Petit in the Razzball league!Reply # 51 TomJ Says: April 10th, 2009 at 9:22 am No one has mentioned Chris Duncan. I think he could have a good year. If the Cardinals can ever find a solid platoon mate for him, watch out. Duncan cant hit lefties. Unfortunately, Rasmus is better against righties as well. Too bad. That could have been a great platoon. In the early going the Cards are simply using 4 OFs for 3 spots. The Cards should acquire Matt Diaz, or a like player, that murders lefties to platoon with Duncan. They can give Rasmus a chance next season.

  45. I´ve been reading your blog for awhile and also it under no circumstances occurred to me to comment. Which is totally ironic, because I´ve spent quite a lot of time over the past few months studying what it takes to make people comment on my own website. After reading a few your posts I guess it´s controversial topics that stir people´s emotions to the point exactly where they can´t simply just ´let it go.´
