  • 3 Weeks of Commenting: time for a break

    Image via Wikipedia I’ve decided to take a break for a day or so and hit the challenge again in a flurry at the top of next week. Why?  Well with all this commenting on other peoples’ blogs, I’ve actually neglected my own writing. I want to get back in the groove again. So my…

  • What do you do on a day off?
