Adam Montana here again. Things seem to be heating up again, and when things heat up… all kinds of rumors start flying around, people get excited, then mad, then excited, then anxious… and then people get confused and for some reason, they get mad at ME!
As silly as that might sound, it’s true!
So, in order to save myself a LOT of trouble… I’m going to start doing weekly chats. These will be either open Q&A session type chats or they will be simple update chats, depending on how much time I have free.
Location: The DinarVets.com chat room, located here.
Time: 9PM CST, every Wednesday.
