“You Oughta Know” (again)

It’s been two weeks back at blogging again, and it feels great!  Thanks to all of you who are reading and commenting.  Thank you for visiting my little corner of the web.  So far I’ve been writing nearly every day and I’m pretty sure I can’t keep up that pace as the semester goes on, so things might start slowing down a bit.  But I’m sure I’ve given you more than enough interesting stuff to look at and ponder in the links below.
