    AndyG's favorite 4 letter word: work

    I hear and see so much wrong in society, and I know all societies’ have ills, but humor me- What happened to the value of work? What do you mean Andy? A lot. First of all, work is the foundation of our personal economy- or at least always has been mine. Why in the world would people avoid it...
