Hi Don and Bobbye:
We will be very happy to do that for you.
Thanks so much for your kind words.
Christina at Capstone forwarded me your email regarding the HOA blog that BDCC
has. I can't seem to find it, but if you can help to get it posted I would be so grateful!
Her name is Rosie, 9 month old Jack Russell, very sweet, but a bit skiddish and a
barker, but very loving. My number is 760-485-1231 and attached is her picture.
Thank you very much for your help!
I have a Hoover Floormate SpinScrub tile floor cleaner that I would love to list in the hotsheets and
maybe the blog. Do I just send the email to you and you set up the ad or is there a way I do it
myself? If I send it to you, the information is below - if I need to do it myself, can you let me know
Hoover Floormate SpinScrub for sale - $45 (retails for $150). Includes grout cleaning attachment -
great for cleaning those floors after the holidays! Only used 3 times.
