It is through endurance (focus) that we can and will achieve a heck of a...

Re: UBPN Chatroom

What time works for you jmar? Currently I have been thinking every two weeks starting at 5:30pm PST, day is flexible but Wednesday seems to work for most people. Date and time is flexible though and I'm open to hearing what works for you.

I was injured in 1983 and even then they were telling parents to "wait and see." The forums also have a ...
