Reasonable Comment…..

Just can’t believe how many people put things on Digamextra without at least the area they are in .  So many times I read an ad and get excited at the thought of owning a particular item or even applying for a job such as maintenance or gardening just to find NO area mentioned . I will not contact anyone on the off chance they are in my area .   Sorry for the rant .   Martin in Colmenar.
