What up world?!?! Long time since I’ve posted a REAL blog. But I have something special for you in this article. I was asked a good question by my uncle Jay, and the question was available for everyone to see on one of my many facebook wall posts. I say it is a good question because I questioned it myself while on the program. Here is the question from my uncle Jay.
