Video Blog Kickoff: Fall Events and Complete Streets
I've held back doing video blogs for fear that the production value wouldn't be high enough to be respectable. Today I'm getting past that and will just get on with it. So without further ado, here's me in my kitchen. Links to the mentioned events are below.
