Update 7/7

Posted July 7, 2011 by in Uncategorized

Hello from the third floor.
I pray you all had a marvelous 4th of July. Isn’t it a great to live in a country where we celebrate our country’s independence, not with parades of tanks and soldiers but with picnics with fireworks and family!  That sentence is from Erma Bombeck but so true. I know I am grateful.

But I feel a tad slighted that I didn’t get to see a dancing midget like someone I know – SEE.

I am sure all of you had a hectic week and were not able to see all of the hard work we have been doing  so I thought I would give you a second chance:
Check out Aaron Shust’s new web site – www.aaronshust.com
Did you check out the Downhere EPK too. It is HERE.
What about the Aarton Shust EPK? Did you see it? If not, watch it HERE.
