One Minute with Dennis: 1-100

I began this One Minute with Dennis on July 5, 2022 and culminated the series on October 12, 2022. All were done once per day on the exact day they were broadcast. I wanted to be as real as possible as to what occurred for me to say on that particular day. Sometimes cogent, sometimes less than.
