Angry SadHappily SOLD

I didn't make it easy for potential buyers as I essentially spent 90% of the time traveling to take final advantage of my beloved VegiVan1 -- preemptive seller's remorse I guess.
Still she sold faster than I feared -- seems I sold too low ...
Miss her already

Thanks everyone for your great support and fun here. I trust you'll welcome her new lucky owner with equal generosity and spirit should he join the forum.

Veggin' On !

Technology is increasing day by day rapidly. In the same way, bio fuel technology is also one of them. You need to follow this and get more updates for the high level of students. People are unaware of the importance of this technology but this website is making the concept of the people clear.

According to something I read on this website, it’s better to have a memorable name rather than a trendy or catchy one, because memorable ones always stick with you.
