Sitting in my home office on a Friday in the peace and quiet

Was is Neu? By Tom Iervolino Sitting in my home office on a Friday in the peace and quiet getting some work and PCA stuff done. I am also waiting for, actually looking forward to, the pending snow storm. Based on the reports, you would think it never snowed before much less the “we are […]
