Chuck is gonna love this! I, on the other hand, being an English teacher, am more into the English language, rather than as Chuck would say, 'geek speak'.....am I in trouble for saying this? Delete this if this is tacky....
Although, okay, pretty cool info, all from your phone, yes? (So, all right, there's a bit of geek in all of us!! Don't tell my husband!)
