Took a couple days off

Last weekend wasn’t so great for me health wise on top of America becoming the Right-Wing, Fascist Kingdom the GOP has had a boner for since Goldwater. Lot of dizzy spells, probably a combination of dehydration and the blood pressure … Continue reading

Typesetting/Layout matter, lesson 1
