Berlin Wall - Lips

I feel I have crossed a new dimension and will finally stop talking to myself. Up to now I have been a bit shy about expressing my opinion and entering the blogesphere, but there is nothing like publishing online to get your head clear. Also having “googleitis” I come across so many interesting tit bits of information that I really want to share – Lots of links tend to be put out there but analysis and opinion are missing, which would help in trudging through so much info and keeping the conversation flowing! Keep in mind this is my opinion and I look forward to hearing yours!
