  1. I find the fixing of prices on anything a slap in the face of free enterprise. That said, while I’m on your site, I’d like to mention my new book, “Beth:Love Along The Way…by B.G.Sanford,.” and released by Eloquent Books. It’s the amazing story of one woman who overcomes all odds and obstacles that life has thrown at her, to find real Love………Along the Way. It’s romance, it’s good and bad relationships, it’s raw emotion and life drama at its best, and it’s damned entertaining! For those so inclined, it can be purchased on line or have your favorite bookstore order it for you. Either way, the reader is in for a real treat!
    Good reading my friends,
