Good good links #161

Is it really Sunday again? Okay, I’ have no doubts here but I really just want to relive the past few days and maybe do a few more things differently [like getting up earlier and cross a few things off my to-do list before Thursday]. But that’s neither here nor there and you’ve come not for ramblings but good good links. Without further ado that’s what you’ll get.

Happy Sunday!
