Weekly Thingy

by Doug Wolter

images73.jpgSome of you have noticed that I’ve taken a little break from my normal blogging.  I’m doing this to devote more of my attention to the Online Book Discussion that you’re welcome to be a part of.  In lieu of this temporary change, I decided to start a Weekly Thingy.  The Weekly Thingy will happen every Friday where I’ll make note of the different things that caught my attention during the week.  Feel free to peruse the list and make any comments you wish.  Oh, and just because I link to it, doesn’t mean I always endorse it.  For those participating in the Online Book Discussion, I look forward to seeing you next week as we tackle another chapter together.  Until then, enjoy the Weekly Thingy and enjoy your weekend!
