Get busy livin’, or get busy dolphin.

I will be blogging from the safety of the underside of my desk until the “all clear” siren sounds and we are no longer in danger of getting clobbered by space junk. As I sit here munching my emergency stash of Dr. Pepper and Teddy Grahams, I have given pause to wonder what would be […]
