What Is Your Gift?

I wish I could tell you I have had only a couple of jobs in my career.  Truth being told, there is nothing further from the truth.  It took much longer than I would have ever anticipated to find my niche.  When I graduated from college, I had no idea what I wanted to be "when I grew up".  Eighteen years later, I am closer, but a curve ball could come at me at any…

The callers didn't speak up a lot during the show but when the Aftershow came they let him have it. Why? I don't know. It was pretty good show. But…
