Bottoms up, it’s Ocktoberfest! Raise your steins, your glasses, it’s been a long week and you’ve earned it. The Guru’s have been as busy as ever. We got to play with some toys all day, we shared our go-to Birthday presents that we like to have on hand in a pinch, AND.. drumroll please, we made a commercial! All in all, I think we all deserve a little pat on the back. So enjoy your weekend, for those who get Columbus Day off (I’ll try not to resent you), for everyone else, enjoy some these links from the week and we’ll see you Monday.
