“It’s Just My Take”…..that would be this blog which has been much ignored since 2011.  I get reminded (thank you WordPress) every time I go to preview or view a blog post I’ve created.   Let’s just say “Deb neglected this blog.” I’ll be honest.  I hit a block in the road in terms of blogging.  I […]
