What’s Up with Shorty?

Hey all,

I haven’t been posting the past couple weeks because I’m currently working on a contract opportunity that requires a considerable amount time.

I’m going to reduce my posting schedule to once a week. While I’ll try to post on the same day, my ultimate goal is to get info to you at least once a week.

Thanks for sticking with me. I’ll be back in action next week!
