  1. Melanis and Josh Fine job and great video. ANswered many questions ! I love your dog photo bombs Melanie ! Keep up the good work or trying to !

  2. The storied, hallowed annals of Black History Month will ever be remiss absent mention of Tiffany Henyard, who has single-handedly done more to blight, blemish and embarrass the black “community” than any other black person in recorded history, ever.

    Super contribution; stay memorable.
