So glad that little boy in Alabama was rescued and is safely home. So sad about that 8.0 quake and tsuname in the Solomon Islands. And SO DAMN happy I am getting back to the office today after being sick for the last 4 days with this upper respiratory infection! I’m over the coughing already!!…..Metallica has introduced a new line of shoes through the Vans company, with each member of the band getting his own signature footwear and personally choosing the design.
