..."There is a Mexican In Your Front Yard"
2020 Jul 0242m 30s
In this episode, I take the podcast to a direction that I never wanted to take it.  However, there was an "incident".  Join me as I describe this "incident" to you and the direction it takes the mindset and what I do to come out of this struggle of something that was difficult to talk about.  We live in a beautiful world and it is up to each of us to keep it that way, even if we cross paths with those who think differently.  If you have any comments or feedback for me on this episode, please email me at  I would absolutely love to hear from you.
