>^..^< Pennywit has added advertisers to his blog. Tastefully done; does not resemble the window at K-Mart. The one that immediately piqued my interest was Spirit of America. Please click over and take a look, in case there are any groups there that you are especially interested in helping. The blog competition is almost over, but I'm sure the need will be there for a while.
>^..^< New to Donnie's blogroll: Intergalactic Capitalist. It's another Bomb in Blogworld!! Go there and see what I mean. Warning to 'church ladies': NOT PG!!!
>^..^< Pfc. Hammer Finds a Home This is a great story from Iraq. Thanks to Dale at Mostly Cajun for the link and also for finding the blog You Big Mouth, You!
>^..^< Brand new to the Blogosphere: A Sailor in the Desert. Just found it today on its first sea duty.
>^..^< The uniqueness of two of my favorite reads is what makes them magnetic blogs, drawing me back again and again to get the pulse of two poles. One describes his blog as "Politically incorrect thoughts from the edge of Michael King's conservative black mind" and the other as (paraphrasing here, can't find the quote) 'one of the few remaining liberals in Utah.' Whatever -- Mike's Ramblings, and RC's Greene Thoughts keep me informed on what's bubbling in both cauldrons!
>^..^< And I've been thinking I was having a tough time this past week! Just goes to prove that however stressed, anxiety-ridden, pushed for time, or tired you are, there are others with more on them, who breeze through it much better. God help you, indeed, Jack. Would that I had such aplomb and efficacy!
