I know.  I know.  I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking: “What’s the dealy-O?!?!?  Where’s all the delicious new content that I’ve become so custom to seeing from my friendly neighborhood jman?”

Well…the answer to that question lies in:  the Newsbox.  We’ve moved all the pop culture content and gave it it’s own address:  the-newsbox.com.  We’ve got all kinds of crazy shit going on over there.  New podcasts, new YouTube shows, plenty of news and so much commentary, well…it’ll probably make you a lil sick to your tummy.

So what of yfnjman?  Well…here’s hoping the big guy upstairs grants me some time to once again regale you with more personal stories about raising four kids.  Cause Lord knows, I’ve got ’em.  Stories, that is.  And kids, too.

Check back often.  But, not that often.

Love always…and in all ways.

Not only am I going to link the most popular superheroine of all time to Sanger, but I’m going to do it in two legitimate steps.
