An Easy Transfer?

An Easy Transfer?
I want to tell you a little story about the huge menace posed by the relentless advance of technology and the demands of 'keeping up' that it poses on smaller operators without the benefit of IT departments and other timely, qualified, on-site assistance.

Cheap Blowjobs

Cheap Blowjobs
