Words To Ponder

Normally I wouldn’t quote an obscure American President, or even a well-known one, but for once I stumbled across a statement that I agreed with! No idea if President Taft really said this. If you are a long-time frequenter of this spot, you know I have used that quite before – 2015 I think it […]
