Demo #5 – “In Your Hands”

Posted by on May 29, 2007

Here’s a CRAZY STORY!!!

I loved getting awesome gas milage, driving in the CARPOOL LANE all the time, and feeling all “green” and everything. The NorCal spirit so overtook me that, before long, I was even eating home-made Granola in the car…granola.jpg
