Thanks, Glynn.

I love posts like this. It lets me explore new places and find new voices without working too hard.

Have a great weekend.

Thank you for including me, Glynn. It's raining today, so I should be able to find some time to check out some of the video treats.

Have a lovely weekend.

Thanks for including me, Glynn. Unfortunately I hit publish on that post before it was supposed to go live, so I ended up taking it down. {it will run again later!} So you may want to take me off this list, since the link doesn't go anywhere -- I'm sorry for the inconvenience!!

Thanks for the mention, again and thank you for taking the time to gather up these great places to visit every week.

I'm completely blown away by the Honey Hunt pictures. Holy Moley!

I always feel honored when you include me in your good reads post, Glynn. And thank you again for this gathering of the goods! So much to enjoy.

Like Katdish, I'm in awe of the bee photographer's work. Wow. As mind blowing as the pictures are, and as fascinating as the story they tell, I kept wondering how the photographer managed to capture them. I'd love to see pictures of him taking the pictures!

on a four day layover
i can hardly wait for tomorrow
