ransom notes

I’m liking this new mantra, passive aggressive money, so i pulled up the old edition of this which I now find extremely embarrassing. I rewrote it top to bottom condensing redundant material and adding new material, so in essence its more than 30% new material.  I did some new research but not a ton, so […]
