Todd: OK.

Jeff: www.eagarbros.com. E-A-G-A-R-B-R-O-S dot C-O-M and it's eagerbros.com because my last name is Eagar, Jeff Eagar. And "Bros" is short for brothers and I have three brothers but I have two brothers that I travel with around the world, different countries with and so it's sort of like a video diary of some of the things we've seen and done on our travels with people and places. Yeah, it's interesting. It's got video, stories and audio. It's all about people and poverty and wealth and their serenity..of the world. It's pretty good. It's pretty interesting I think.

Todd: Wow! Thanks.
