More Shame! Apology Accepted. And Retracted!

Posted on Monday, September 23, 2013 in World of CO

So when approached by someone claiming they have some uber great new e-zine I was to say the least skeptical. HOWEVER…10 seconds after looking through the demo I was 100% sold. So much so that I’m (more…)
