Suburban Dollar Turns One (Give Away Included)

Oh, isn’t the little baby so cute… oh wait this is a website. It feels like my third baby though and today it turns one and just like a baby I think it is just now starting to walk from it’s previous crawling pace. From what I hear it is a pretty big deal to survive this long which means I have made it over the hump and on the road to notoriety. I whipped up another video in honor of the occasion and I am giving some stuff away.
