Robb & Stucky Furniture store

The photos I showed during the past two days were from this Robb & Stucky furniture store in Playas del Coco. Who would think that you can furnish a house in Costa Rica using the same furniture store as the USA.

We did not use a tropical decor for our two condos. We wanted a clean, modern design. We used a French interior decorator in Tamarindo, and she went to the Capitol of San Jose, 4 hours away, to find furniture for our condos.

Ironically, when my wife and I bought our house in Scottsdale, Arizona, the previous owners had the entire house furnished by Robb & Stucky in a tropical decor. They even had an artist paint murals of jungle scenes with toucans in the cutouts in the walls. There were even floor to ceiling palm trees, 16 feet (5 m.) tall, in the master bedroom. We felt guilty to have them painted over, but the tropical motif simply did not go with our furnishings from China, Tibet, Mexico, Native American cultures, and more.

We are showing photos of the Roman ruins in Merida, Spain, and some photos of Seville, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Gday administrator, I just wanted to give you
a brief heads up that your Website link: http://www.blogger.
com/comment.g?blogID=4486504529519277316&postID=3922012382447593703 is being flagged as a potentially harmful blog
in my browser internet explorer. I would highly recommend having someone look into it.
You could very well lose a lot of website visitors due to this problem.

Best of Luck.

Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization?
I'm trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I'm
not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share.
Many thanks!

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing
a blog post or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I
think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

I am new to building websites and I was wanting
to know if having your blog title related to your content really that crucial?
I see your title, "Blogger: Tamarindo, Costa Rica Daily Photo "
does appear to be spot on with what your blog is about but yet, I prefer to keep
my title less content descriptive and based
more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
