baking soda does all the stuff it does because

I ran into an issue. I drink about 4 cups of coffee a day, drink a lot of diet coke, and will occasionally indulge in the celebratory cigar. As a result, after 20-odd years of life, my teeth have begun to lose their pearly luster (EGADS!). I’m not to the maggot-yellow meth addict level yet, […]

Palomino Pencil Review

5 Jun , 2013
