    Howdy! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog such as
    yours require a large amount of work? I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be
    able to share my experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

    Appreciate it!

    Hi – thanks for posting this information. The photo of her medals is great – where did it come from? I have quite a bit more information about Ms Brooks as she is on a family tree that I’ve been researching. If you’d like me to send it to you offline, please let me know.
