    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!| а

    I really like the first cage but I can’t find a video where they show it or some drawings to get a little bit more info about it. Does someone know the original maker?
