Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. To 20 oz. Continue reading

UPDATE: Jesse’s Been Doing WERK!

It dawned on me, I post to my blog every week about topics on my mind.  It’s great and I love being able to put that out to the public for all of you to read, BUT there’s a lot going on my end that I’m not telling you!  I don’t want to keep secrets from all of my friends out there, so here’s the scoop: Continue reading
