Every year, the company where I work holds a health fair. They set up in the break room/kitchen area and they then draw blood to check for cholesterol levels and other diseases and they administer flu shots. All for free. I will be the first one to tell you that I don’t like needles, although […]

My Brothers Second Financial Meltdown

Posted on November 9th, 2010 by by Jesse Michelsen
