Social Skills

I’ve had a few visits from the web host at Closet Fascination and I’ve accepted her offer to visit her.  She really “gets” the whole ‘smoking appreciation’ thing and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my visits to her ‘site.  Recently she directed her readers to a blog post about the videos being employed in the Canadian government’s campaign […]
