    You hear about equipment given to clients being used for other things e.g. a shower stool becomes a plant stand. But I haven’t heard of them becoming weapons – good on them – what a couple.

    Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
