Rinda Unplugged

Apologies for the unannounced week of Rinda Unplugged.  I wanted to leave the Apex Raffle  up for a while.  It’s not going so well for them this year, but then a lot of us are holding our breaths over this economy.  The rumors circulating about the publishing industry have had me sweating out an already intense […]

Sweet Life Revisited and Kasey MacKenzie’s News!
