Happy New Decade! I hope you enjoyed some quality RnR over the holidays. Rock n Roll isn’t what I meant by that acronym, but it could be. Regardless, may some rest, relaxation and good times with family and friends have found you over break whether you rocked out, or barely rolled away from the dinner table. All good!
