Friday Fast Facts: OBX

Well, the idea is that the facts are fast. I’m not so sure how fast they actually will be because when I get to yammering about something that interests me, I’m likely to slow down and really weave a talk around whatever has my interest at that moment. I love sharing my life experiences and …
