I just wanted to make a quick note because this got my attention for the past couple of weeks.
For as long as I lived in Los Osos, I had a one-track mind arguing that other people had a one-track mind. As soon as I started looking at all of the options for Los Osos in terms . . . → Read More: Los Osos: Getting Stronger When Focused
Here are the transcripts of the speeches made on March 3rd.
From Aaron (full version):
