A Piece of My Mind turned 8 yesterday!
I'd like to say a very heartfelt thank you to all of my longtime readers. I have so many online friends that I met initially through the blogosphere, and my world is so much happier with all of you in it.

2 - Trinity (Titoli) from the Django Unchained soundtrack - Annibale E I Cantori Moderni - 2012
