When the time comes that a joy begins to feel like a job it is a sign that you need to take some time off. I have been very proud of myself, for 3+ straight months I have been able to post daily and bring you obscure daily facts. Though for two very simple reasons: 1) It has become a dreaded daily task, and 2) I am getting, on average, 3 views a day, I have decided to take some time off, re-access, and try and figure out what my next step will be. I thank you all. Stay Tuned. -RVS
