favorite back in the mix) (also other EarWolf stuff), The Bugle,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Beer (the yummy kind, not the yellow fizzy kind); Whiskey; Google

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
