  1. I tend not to leave a response, however I read a great deal of
    remarks on "DUTCH PALACE-KERALA". I actually do have a few questions
    for you if it's okay. Could it be only me or do some of the responses look like they
    are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to follow you.
    Would you post a list of the complete urls of your social community pages like your twitter feed,
