Re: Any one heard of this Colontown site ?

I had once wanted to start a 501C3 and was talked out of it, not to say I wont in the future ...

I have been thinking about it for awhile and you just gave me the push to do it without feeling guilty as though somehow its something I am not doing correctly and that's why I'm in pain. Thank you!

Re: Non-narcotic pain relievers?
