Been a long time…

Sorry for the absence. I have had a few of my “fans” asking why I haven’t posted in a whlie. I can’t say that I haven’t thought about posting, but I just haven’t had anything that I particularly wanted to say. I mean I could always talk about politics or stuff like that, but then, […]
