Gabriels – Blame

Morning all. Over the last ten years while I haven't been contributing as much to the WGOM I have been raising my herd and listening to tunes. Hopefully one day we may all benefit from both of those actions but this week you may see some value from the tunes side.

Unrelated I had some folks reach out to me privately about the disgusting events from over the weekend in Buffalo. Thanks to the well wishers.

Sadly, I know that the Twin Cites know this pain too.  All good vibes are reciprocated.
