    For all those who still aren't part of Pi Network: JOIN Pi Network now! !!!!

    You just need an Invitation Code >>>( lavdim1 )<<< to start earning your own Pi Coins.

    It is very important to choose someone who is active at mining, because this will affect also your Pi earning. Once in 24h you have to open your Pi App, click "Mine" and close it, or the mining stops (you spend only 1 minute in 24h – that’s great).

    I am very active and careful to not let my Pi account stop mining. If you don’t have a code yet, you can use mine: lavdim1

  67. Pristine Pro Commercial Cleaning


  68. I have looked at several tutorials (this one being one of the best) that promote Astra as being the theme of choice. I am sold, but one small problem, apparently my ISP of many years (Hosting Check), has an install of WordPress , that blocks the use of any but their choice of templates, and has no provision for deleting plugins (only disable). Is there a workaround for this problem? Several years ago I signed up for lifetime hosting, and hesitate paying for another ISP . The current site was written in HTML by my ex, so I have no way to change/update it.

  69. This is cool

  70. Please can you help me. I want to create new website but I can't make it please help me
