For instance, His interview with Ron White was great. That's the exact kind of thing I like to listen to when I'm working. I caught … Continue reading St. George in Retirement
I hate bloggers that beef about the interfaces being changed. But FFS, I started typing today and the @!_($)!@_$ interface went nuts. Why? Why, Oh Lord, do they change this stuff?
