    Hello Barry,

    I’m ecstatic that the Blog is up and running. I had the good fortune of speaking with you for over an hour on the phone one day about 2 months ago. You mentioned that you were working on setting this up during our conversation. The Nadia’s Theme story and the other anecdotes are very encouraging to those of us trying to improve our language and song writing skills.

    By the way, I absolutely love the MasterWriter software. I am nearing completion of the project that I mentioned to you when we spoke. The desire to improve the quality of my lyrics was the impetus for the purchase of your software. You really gave me some valuable food for thought that I have utilized on this project. Clearly my best lyrics to date. By the way, I was taking notes as we spoke. Your explanation of the “Parts of Speech” section was a tremendous help… Amazing! You probably don’t recall the constant conversation but it has had a huge impact on this and future projects.

    Thank you,

    I remember when I went to the drive-in theater to see the movie Bless the Beast’s and the Children. It was a great movie and I couldn’t get the song out of my head. I loved it. Thank you Berry. I use MasterWriter and find it to be an extremely useful in my song writing.

    You can find the full schedule and venue locations on their website:.
    Playing as part of a network has its benefits over the single site products such as Party Poker or 888.
    Of course you will not find the pros at $20 buy-in level in a small casino but in a large poker room with $200 buy-in players
    of top calibre are certainly present and give every one a chance to
    measure up their game against the strong competition.

  12. Your entire work and portfolio is amazing, thank you for sharing, it s really great to implement your resources!
