  • Times Of My Life I Will Never Get Back
    How many times have you encountered those moments, when you watched, read, listened, or participated in something where at the end you disgustedly thought, “Well there’s ten (twenty, thirty, etc.) minutes of my life I will never get back!” I said this just the other morning after reading an email from an uncle who is new to […]
