Well, here we are again. You know the drill. Then again, maybe you don’t. How silly of me to assume. You know what happens when we assume and neither of us wants that to happen. Well, maybe you do, but I don’t.

Welcome to the Weekly Town Crier, where I collect link I have found interesting and pass them along to you with the premise that you will find them just as interesting. Maybe you will, maybe you won’t, that’s up to you, not me, and I’m not going to lose any sleep over it one way or another.
