Isn’t it funny how one day can be just like any other for people on one continent and extremely exciting for those on another? Translation: to me, it’s “just” Sunday while I know many of you overseas it’s time for the long-awaited the Super Bowl. Which I admittedly know zilch about. Oops!? Either way, have fun watching, eating lots of delcous food and cheering on your team.
What I know more about is good posts and the fact I came upon a sheer overwhelming number in the past two weeks. Because I don’t want these round-ups to become too crowded and the individual articles not getting enough attention anymore I saved some for the next dose of good good links. Anyway, I’m sure you’ll still find some good reading material in today’s post already so …
Happy reading and happy Sunday!
