I missed posting last week because I have been neck deep in a server migration/upgrade for a client that has been attacked continually by Murphy’s laws. Thankfully we are turning a corner on that.
Weather has been getting colder as have my cold showers
I hope you find this mashup to be extra full and special.
Have a great weekend!
