I just recently moved to Manchester, New Hampshire. I'm four months into my electrical engineering career and I'm looking to meet not just a girl, but people in general. I'm the youngest in my…Continue
"Ah, thank you for setting me straight Martin; I wasn't sure about my information. Knowing who owns Caol Ila is far less important to me, however, than knowing where I can find it locally! I usually have to…"
