Honestly, when RY shows me WHY something is incredible and has vetted vendors to do really out of the box things I'm pretty trusting with it. I've yet to have a bad experience.

Did you Know?

The people of Zanzibar, when building a house, build their door first! Thats right, its not only to protect, but to show a sign of new life.  The bigger the door, more elaborate the door the more wealth.
AND
Freddy Mercury was born in Zanzibar.
