Due to concurrent unfortunate challenges in The Republic I was unable to get Top 7 things to you earlier dear readers. As a I type I'm not even in the comfort of my home which is where I usually write to you all (and my place of preference). A whole me, I am squatting at a restaurant like an electricity refugee getting this blog post to you all.

Don't laugh. I have also seen a few of you here with me. I greet you my roommates.

You're welcome 😊
