Some great weather this weekend – it is a bit rainy today but yesterday was just fantastic (until the hurricane at dinner time). We went down the beach and hung out for a few hour – a great day.
Best post of the week
Kristy from Master Your Card works in a bank and she shares the two times that she was robbed – it’s a pretty good read! Most of the blogosphere is filled with posts where the author doesn’t have any direct experience with the topic so it’s nice to read a first hand account of a relatively rare phenomenon.
Another great post
Hunter Nutall has a very interesting blog where he writes about a lot of different topics and his thoughts on them – this post on specialization (specialization is for insects) was quite fascinating (and not just because he linked to this blog). If you like your blogs to have an element of intellectualism about them (in which case why are you here?) then I would suggest subscribing to his blog.
