As Dr. Charlie Bryan, Jr. wrote we had more changes in the 20th century here than the previous three centuries combined.
Ray’s Raws contains a repository of many of the Wallace columns written in the last couple of years.

ASCOT BELLA received her graduate degree at the Ascot Institute for Norwich Terriers, Linglestown, Pennsylvania, with summa cum laude status…William J Schubart and Jane R. Schubart, provosts. Her management is formidable, and her direction of this modest blog is immeasurable.
