    The Worker [Friend?] arrived Thursday evening and left this evening so was here pretty much the same amount of time as PT.  In some ways it's a little unfair to compare what they each achieved as they were doing different things, but the contrast is so stark it can't be ignored.  PT achieved far mor...

I hadn't planned on being so personal on this site, but a recent, unsigned birthday card that came in the mail just made those feelings surge. And it... Read more

    I spent the whole day pricking the merchandise I purchased this weekend for my shops.

  • 6th of 144 things I want to change - Water

    11/4/2019 11:11:30 AM, by MAKEITWORKIT

The only thing is, I do rather like a nice cup of tea.. But I want to change from water because I am convinced it will ... Read more
