    I have gone there and signed up a few days ago. I had not received anything for a few days and when I applied again, I received a message saying that an invitation had been emailed to me. I have received none.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads very
    quick for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!
