Special Summer Series (turning into the rest of the year series) continues with Jim Radar and DNA - YEA!!!!

What a great opportunity to learn about this DNA thing. Ask your questions and get answers. Decide whether you want to take the test. And then do it. If you have the results (or are waiting for them) find out what is next? What does it mean?
