What did you do this week? Guess what I did. Photo screen capture from Hercules Returns starring David Argue as Brad McBain. My favourite film of all time. That’s right! I gave notice at my day job after five and a half years there and 25 out of the last 27 years in that industry. […]Read More The Next Chapter.
