  1. I seldom leave responses, but after browsing a few of the responses on
    AGIIG Business Meetings at CLA 2011 (Halifax, NS) |
    Government Information Network. I actually do have a couple of
    questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be only me or does it appear like a few of these responses come across like they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  2. Excellent weblog right here! Additionally your website loads up very
