MR Review 2011, Jan 9 – A Busy Time

A Busy Time

    • Thanks, I’ve been lookin at the group closely, thinking that eventually the cost of natural gas would rise again, and owning such stock would be a good investement…

    • I’m thinking about bring the series back as a monthly post instead of weekly. I enjoy creating the comic series, but it’s too draining for now. I need to grow the blog in other ways first.

  1. Thanks for the mention! I’ve been able to post 3 times a week for a while, but next month will really be busy with the baby coming along. Probably need to line up some guest posts.
