This week’s instalment of the Job series is tackling a big fish, “Bad things happen to bad people”. It is taking more time than I thought to get the pieces to fit together well. So, to tide you over, here are some of my favourite things from around the web this week. Podcasts Special Edition:Continue reading “Web Selections: September 24, 2020”
I have a confession to make: I am a forgetful person. I have more single gloves than pairs.
