What a big day on for the show. Episode 400 and 10k Giveaway Friday. I had GSD Blend in my cup and boy did I need it. Extra tired and more tech gremlins had me all over the place this morning. I talk about the slow roller on the road, Norman’s big behavior change and the weather changes quickly here. Leading off with The Perfect Cup Question “IF YOU HAD TO TEACH SOMETHING, WHAT WOULD YOU TEACH?” followed up by This Day In History prepared by Pip over at Ducktioncups.com.
