Saturday Good Reads

Many good things were on the web this week. While I was working through my blocking issues with Twitter, I’m thought about posting a few each of these each day instead of a whole bunch of them on Saturday. We’ll see.

And speaking of Twitter, my account has been fully restored. It turns out that somehow I got caught up in a spam cloud – whatever that is. Twitter apologized – it should never have happened.

I’m going to have to write a poem entitled “Ensnared in a Spam Cloud.”

I've wondered where you have been :) Glad the cloud decided to release you to create chaos and maheim again.

Thank you for the mention...a vulnerable post for me, but I'm humbled to have it mentioned.
Happy Saturday.

I made the Saturday "Good Reads" list!? Yea! Thanks, Glynn.

I'm anxious to peek at some more good reads. Looks like a great list.

Gardening is keeping me from my normal blog reading. This is a nice way to catch up on golden words.

Glad you're back. You were sorely missed. Thanks for your generosity towards all of us.

Thank you for including me once again, Glynn. I appreciate your recognition of all of us.

I'm curious about that spam cloud. I barely understand cloud computing, though I think it's cool. Spam clouding, however, is not cool.

Looking forward to your "Spam Cloud" poem ... it's an honor and encouragement to be included on your list, Glynn. Thank you.

Woot! I feel like someone gave me a Grammy or something whenever I make your Saturday post.
