Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Nina-Marie. You seem like an interesting person, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author, so perhaps we can share books and ideas in the future.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed
