Comments Off on Gloves in a Bottle Review

Because of a previous review, I’d been asked to give my thoughts on this product. It was initially slated to be reviewed while JoAnn and the kids were in Portland a few weeks back, but the project I was going to be doing during that time was postponed (which was ripping out all the downstairs […]

My blog’s not registered, and I certainly don’t recall ever registering, not even after a Sangria episode, and I certainly didn’t do it this afternoon.

Already this morning the blog gets a hit from the Washington State Department of Transportation because of the brief post yesterday about their spokesperson using some new and creative politically-correct language.
