Always Choose Kindness

Many years ago, I found myself in an interesting predicament. In a parking garage, I turned into a very narrow parking space and nicked the car next to me.

You Say You Wanna Party?

I have several circles of friends with whom I mingle with regularly. We check in and catch up and laugh and moan.

Even more of them here.
