Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (2/9/2018)
Happy birthday to me! I turn 33-years-old today, a far cry from the 21-year-old who started this website. This site and I have done quite a bit of developing over the years, and hopefully that will only continue into the future. I’ve been doing a lot more posting over on my LinkedIn page as of the start of 2018, so if you’re not already friends with me or following me, then go ahead and click whatever button is necessary to begin. This week, we give thanks to Stakers.com for being a supporter of the site!
