Stop Feeding the EMS Tee Trolls

Entry Img

If I took the time I spend perusing Facebook and spent it writing blog posts instead, I could probably fill more server space than I have available. I spend way too much time on the ‘net doing drive by posting on social media than I ever do posting here, and that’s a shame. I really […]
