One in particular is our very own Patrick Lee - RottenDoubt, PatDoubt, Big Kahuna of AliveNotDead.
And of course, in typical AliveNotDead style, this was not just a birthday party b...Read more
Year's end is the time when we all get reflective and take stock of what we've achieved in the past 365 days, what we could have done better and what we've learned.
