Where I grew up in Findlay, Ohio is a pizza parlor that was the first in the area – Jac & Do’s. Their thin crust pizza with ground beef and cheese is the best! You can roll the tiny square-cut pieces right into a roll and pop them in your mouth – so delicious! With .. read more

From Anxiety to Enthusiasm – Introverts and Public Speaking
