IMPORTANT: As previously announced, I’m taking off for a quick weekend getaway in Guadalajara, our state’s capital city. It’s my first urban getaway since the pandemic began, so I’m truly excited about it. Thank YOU cluster for making it possible! Expect announcements for pre-recorded broadcasts tomorrow and Saturday, both on Facebook and YouTube. We’ll be back live on Monday. Have a great weekend!
