The Importance of Base Training

It’s not “Sex” Education – It’s Just Education

For those who know me, it will not come as a big surprise that I am not a big Doug Ford fan. I just can’t abide by someone who prioritizes the price of beer over the price of healthy nutritious food or prescription drugs for the working poor. I could go on all day about… Read More ❱

Celebrating Ten Years – Quietly
