LIVE Foil Quill Tutorial

I heard a psychologist on the news today say that there are 2 responses to all that is going on right now — Either Fear or an Action Plan.   She said that you choose what to focus on.  Of course, we have to have a plan for everyone’s safety & well being.   However, with all of the alarming news & updates that we seem to be getting hourly — and with so many of us “sequestered” at home {Read More}
