Sat, 28 Oct 2017 19:14:06 +0000

The short and sweet answer is that I admire people that try. To me it is not about the winning or losing it is about just taking part. Not every author will reach the fame and wealth of JK Rowling and few musicians will be able to afford their own castle or super yacht. Over […]
