This Week in Spring - February 11th, 2020

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to yet another installment of This Week in Spring! It’s been a very nice week indeed.

I’ve also been working on some new Spring Tips videos - what would you like to see covered, my friends?

This Week in Spring - January 14th, 2020

Hi, Spring fans! What a week! I have … nothing… happening this week! You know why? I had jury duty for which I was summonsed in mid-2019. I had to postpone it since I was on the road. I finally report to the court to serve as a juror for some trial unknown, this month, January 2020, and I was there… for maybe two hours. I was excused! You should definitely do your civic duty, of course. But, it was awesome to have it over and done within a few hours. I had blocked out the entire week, just in case.
