Weekly Link Round-Up

I had this post half done when Firefox crashed. For some reason the Auto Save didn't save, and I'm starting from scratch. If it happens again, I doubt very much that there will be a Links Round-Up this week. I'm not known for my patience! Let's see how fast I can type....

That's it for this week. Wherever you are, I sincerely hope you're having a perfect holiday season. I'm going to go pour some egg nog and read a few pages before it's time to rest up for another interesting day in retail. See you next Sunday!


  1. As usual a great list of links.

    We will have our annual Gingerbread House party tomorrow night - so it was quite timely to view those photos. Not that I aspire to such lofty decorating, but it does give me ideas of new ingredients to have on hand.

    Hope you have a great holiday week!

  2. I loved that story about the abandoned writer!

    Years ago, a colleague of mine was stuck in a snowdrift and asked his wife to jump out and push. She did, and soon after the car was free - he abandoned her there and drove off. He must have a very forgiving wife as they are still happily married :D

    NB: witches´ knickers is also good!

  3. Great round-up! Some book news I hadn't heard about here. :)

  4. I added the same two blogs to my Google Reader this week - good choices :-D!

    Happy Holidays, Cathy!

  5. I'm joining the Bloggiesta :) Thanks for the heads up.

  6. Oh - enjoy Boarding In My Forties - I discovered her recently myself and always look forward to my visits there.

  7. Dorte-- I had to read it aloud to my husband, and Denis said that if he'd done that to me, he'd just keep on driving! (That was the wrong answer!) And I loved the snowdrift story. :)

    Karen-- Thanks so much for stopping by, especially since I enjoy your blog so much!

    Florinda-- Great minds think alike, eh? Hope your holidays are fantastic!

    Stacy-- You're very welcome! These things are always scheduled on weekends. I work every weekend, so I pretty much do my own thing.

    Molly-- I'm really enjoying her blog, too. :)


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
