TBB: The Pawn Broker, They Call Me Q, No Strings Attached

Everyone needs a vacation. Even though I did do some work (on the beach is not a bad place), I did manage to turn it off for a little bit. While away, I learned some useful nuggets of information: 1. Life does go on around you; 2. Always have multiple projects going on; 3. Be…
