  1. I leave a response when I like a post on a website or if I have something to valuable to contribute to
    the conversation. It’s a result of the fire communicated in the post
    I looked at. And on this post Links 10/18/13 | Mike the Mad Biologist.
    I was actually moved enough to leave a commenta response 😉 I do have some questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it just me or does it look as if like a few of
    these responses appear like they are left by brain dead
    folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at other sites, I’d like to follow you.
    Could you list every one of your social pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?
