Givin Gifts

(and the joys of mail in a pandemic) So the last few years have introduced a few changes in my already busy online environment. One noteworthy change was the demise of RedditGifts with their last exchange being held in December of 2021 and the actual deletion of their website in January of 2022.

There are only so many ways…

What I might think of as a complex nuanced situation might be straight forward for another person. What… Continue reading There are only so many ways…
