  1. What is going on? You repeat the same old programs. Don’t worry about me buying anything from your sponsors because I will not be sitting through I Love Lucy and Touched by An Angel over and over. Do some program changes please. Some new Hallmark movies would be much appreciated.

  2. Interesting layout on your blog. I really enjoyed reading it and also I will be back to read more in the future.
