I don't know where the time went, but I think I know how I spent it: I've been having way too much fun. Now it's suddenly dawned on me that Thanksgiving is next week, do I have the food I need, how much more do I have to do to get the house and lawn ready to be decorated... and on and on and on-- up to and including being behind on blog posts. Ack!
With no further ado, let me round up this week's links!
