    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    The Force never was with Han. But I am anxious to see how much his wife Leia has learned to use it over the past 30 years. Not to mention their 3 children, whom the force is apparently going to be VERY strong with. :)
