Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

Already there is […]

Saturday, September 10th, 2016

By now everyone who is familiar with the show, The Bachelor, knows that the new guy for the next season has been chosen. When the announcement was made, viewers were told they would be “shocked.” Probably not all were, I was not.
