  1. People who have hypertension should really avoid fish sauce.

    It’s okay for people with hypotension like me though. :)

  2. Someone always has to pee in the pool. An occasional use of fish sauce is not going to hurt anyone for Pete’s Sake.

  3. Dipping fish sauce is usually diluted. One portion shouldn’t be a lot of core fish sauce in there, it wouldn’t hurt for occasional use.

  4. Real wonderful info can be found on website . “I am not merry but I do beguile The thing I am, by seeming otherwise.” by William Shakespeare.

  5. Hey there would you mind stating which blog
    platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog
    soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
