  1. Thank you for helping us get out the reminder about the twitter party. There are still alot of great items. Father’s Day is coming up and there are items related to Golf, what Dad wouldn’t want a nice massage, or if your Dad is a reader you may just find that book he’s always wanted signed by his favorite author. Just head on over to the auction and see what treasures await.
