Lost & Found & Lost

How’s that New Year’s Resolution going?

What the what… it’s July why are we talking about resolutions you say? Well, we are more than halfway through the year, so why not?  There always seems to be a lot of chatter about the idea of making new changes at the first of the year, and then that
