The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio

I have many, many favorite movies and today I decided to share one of them with you, I think a lot of women in here would truly appreciate this little movie! It's a bitter sweet film, based on a true story. If you haven't seen it, it's a MUST SEE in my opinion. If you have seen it, what are your thoughts?

Here are some movie details:

Evelyn Ryan was a devoted mother and housewife who used her self-described "knack for words" to keep her struggling family afloat. In the 1950s and '60s, housewives across the country used their wits to win thousands of dollars in cash and prizes in jingle contests staged by corporations to promote their products. But of all the "jingle-belles" vying for supremacy, none out-rhymed Evelyn Ryan, whose creative resources usually corresponded directly to her family's needs--and with ten kids and an alcoholic husband, those needs were numerous and unending. Applying her remarkable ingenuity and an uncommon wit, Evelyn found the way to keep her family together, despite the enormous odds stacked against them.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I
was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I drop a comment each time I like a article on a site or I have
something to valuable to contribute to the discussion. Usually it is
a result of the fire communicated in the article I read. And after this article "The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio".
I was excited enough to drop a thought ;-) I do have a few questions for you if it's okay. Could it be only me or does it look like some of the comments appear like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I'd like to keep up
with everything new you have to post. Could you list every one of all your
social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
