RTT: Seriously Random … But With Pictures!

Thank God for RTT … without it (and some of my other fave memes), I wouldn’t blog at all.  Gotta look into that … meanwhile, here’s a download: I can’t wait for my new iPhone.  We didn’t get on the waiting list for the first wave in time (because you had to be hovering over […]
