    Hi
    Will there be a DOD this year? There’s a link from BEA but I can only find 2011.
    thanks,

  2. I actually wanted to write down a note to be able to express gratitude to you for those amazing instructions you are sharing on this website. My rather long internet investigation has finally been honored with useful knowledge to share with my guests. I ‘d admit that many of us readers actually are undeniably lucky to dwell in a very good website with many lovely people with great opinions. I feel pretty happy to have used your weblog and look forward to tons of more fun times reading here. Thanks again for everything.
