Happy Thursday! Yep it’s time for the news once again and maybe I’ll have a review for you later. There’s not much going on on my end except the local government being stupid as usual. They’re trying to put people in jail and fine them for not doing something as small as painting the trim on their homes.  It’s like an HOA but with a badge, it would be funny if it wasn’t true sadly….
