    I must express my apparcietion to this writer for bailing me out of this situation. As a result of browsing throughout the online world and meeting tips that were not helpful, I believed my life was well over. Living without the approaches to the issues you have resolved through the review is a critical case, as well as the ones which may have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I hadn’t encountered your web blog. The training and kindness in touching a lot of stuff was tremendous. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a subject like this. I am able to at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for your reliable and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to recommend your web sites to anyone who ought to have tips about this matter.

    This depends on the place of these bodies at the time of one’s beginning.
    I like the Wizard of Oz theme retro greeting playing cards
    which you can find at the previous link. Sevens have to do with spirituality and deep knowledge.

      My ex & I were close, then we had a bad break up. A month has gone by & we still see each other on a daily basis but don’t talk b/c we don’t want to make it awkward for our mtuual friends by arguing. So we haven’t had any contact & I’ve moved on but in the past 2 weeks I have dreamed about him 11 times.& the dreams are about him missing me, us getting back together, or me missing him. Why do I keep dreaming about him? Does this mean he misses me?

    Hi Zach,
    I was looking at this great tutorial, and saw that you have multiple page templates coming from the Artisteer template.
    How did you do that? Can you do a tutorial on that, or have any suggestions on how to do that? It is something I am really missing in Artisteer.

    Hi Zach,

    Thanks for your nice daily tips. I always follow up with them, and find them to be very helpful.

    This might be off the topic, but thought I may point out if you don’t mind. The HTML tag at the bottom of all WordPress comment box is quite annoying (at least to me). In all my WordPress designs, I use small code to get rid off them. I know you know most of this staff, but wonder why you just left it. WordPress comment boxes looks clean and nice when this tag is removed from the bottom of comment box. I put this small code at the end of ‘style.css’ in theme edit, and it gets rid off “HTML tags and Attribute” messy scripts below comment box. For those who are not comfortable with codes, the step is very simple: 1)Go to “Appearance” in your WordPress Admin area, then to “Edit” 2)click on “style.css” from the the long list and you will see long page of codes under “style.css” 3) just paste this little code way down at the bottom of your ‘style.css’ codes. You can even come back and remove it since it is at the bottom and you can easily locate it without confusion with other codes. Here is the code:

      Honestly, it’s never bugged me, but now that you mentioned it, it is kinda dumb to have it there, huh?

      Great tip! If I hear other people ask about it I’ll make a video and give you credit. :)
