One for the Road

One for the Road
Have you ever heard the old saying, “Do as I say, not as I do”? After all that I’ve written over the past few days about ‘biting off more than you can chew,’ I went and registered a new domain name. Blame it on the full moon, if you like, but I couldn’t resist… A small piece of a la... More »
