    Inspiring! Look at Andrea go with those beats on Press Up Back. Impressive (even Sandy was impressed, what a great face!). As for the scene at the end it’s really sad that you guys don’t have any fun. 😉

    That is Great! thanks You Sandy and Andrea!
    Good to know about how the Work, works! the flow, the connection, the balance all connected. I am very glad to know that I have to much work to do! As Andrea said the other day in a interview with Amy :”Keep working for the rest of my life”
