Motivational Music Monday #48

Where were we?  Right, for most of last year and a good part of this year, I tried to post a weekly recap based (very loosely) on a song choice from the playlist and encouraged everyone to join the party.  If I recall, we usually add some beer, coffee, and an anything else goes selection… Read More »
