Written by Charlie

This was one of the lightest weeks of posting I have had in a while – just one of those weeks. I had a big training day on Monday and had a bunch of other things to do throughout the week. But, I promise it will pick up this week! For the next two weeks, I will be a featured blogger on the Boarding Area home page. That means that you will see my posts last a little longer at the top than normal.

Stay tuned this week also for a nice giveaway to celebrate a big milestone here on the blog!
