Round two coming to an end

Written by , Posted in General

So far the World Series of Blogs has been a great success. Round two will be ending this Friday and the two blogs leading their poll will move on to the final round. The World Series. Good luck to those blogs. Also, as you will notice in our last post, we passed the 10,000 hit mark over the weekend. That is just because of people like yourself that read this blog consistently. Thank you so much for getting us to the point we are. I think I speak on behalf of Dave when I say that we are both having […]
