Barely keeping up

I seem to add more and more interesting blogs to my reader. If I don't have time, I mark it to read later and try to get back to it to read it or let it go (a good skill to have, I'm finding). Of course, the new entries just keep coming. So I've decided to dump some links here in the blog to have a record for myself as much as anyone of stuff that I have found interesting and did get back to, or want to get back to.

  1. You've got one of those incredible minds that never stops, don't cha? ;o}

  2. One could just get sucked into the blog world and not come up for years! It's so amazing at the amount of information and number of interesting minds out there.

  3. Mama Pea - well, as Susan said, there's a lot of interesting stuff out there! I guess the trick is to be able to draw the line somewhere.


Hi, sorry to make the humans do an extra step.
