More Guests Arrive at My M2 Party.

Well that was a fun day.

After work yesterday I decided to take a quick jaunt to Las Vegas to visit my good friend Jay Kho.  We made a video – coming later this week – and dined on Korean food. The only reason I am telling you this is that my trip back ended up being quite fruitful.  I rarely […]
