Good good links #87

What a day! As I sit here finishing this post Saturday night I got back home from a wonderful day spent with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while. That’s only 90 % of the story, though. Because – German readers will understand my frustration – the train ride back had it’s bad surprise at 9 PM. Long story short: I got home more than one hour later than planned and feel ready to hit the pillow soon. However, not before sharing some of the great posts I found this week.

Happy Sunday!
