Hello! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template
or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!

Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but
I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Mr. Meltzer on your show today 1/26/13 you called said Churchill was your hero. I would like to know have you ever heard of the Black and tans? Look them up (Churchill & Black and Tans) and what they did and ask yourself if Churchill is still a hero.
