I Hear Voices in my head

The Bigguner81 podcast went well. William set up a very impressive microphone and headset for me to use. It was way better quality then the old headset and microphone combination unit I had used in the past. If it would have worked it would have been awesome, but it did not. So much for high […]

Names have been changed to protect the guilty. A friend of ours is an attorney. He received a panicked phone call from the wife of a client. She was panic stricken because the police had just burst in to her house with a search warrant and arrested her husband. The attorney asked what agency they […]

Orb Scared by a Race Car Engine
