Griddlesode #4: Arthur Nelson

In this Griddlesode, we introduce a new segment called, “Daddy Don’t Catch on Fire –and other useful advice.” You never know where advice will come from–advice that has a dramatic effect on your perception and understanding of the world. Listen in as Ron shares some of those little tidbits that have had a direct impact on his life. Perhaps, they may have an impact on yours too.
