  1. Thanks so much for listing my website, The Borgeson Bunch, here on your site. This is essentially the way I have built the site, by reading blocks and articles and following up on recommendations. If any visitors to the site have time to complete the visitor survey I would appreciate the feedback. (Dale Borgeson)
