2010-02-01/07 Weekly LOVIEE

Keeping the verbiage short for now, this is what I found for the week. It’s going to be light for a while as explained previously. I’m not giving up on this blog, just becoming a lot pickier about what I post. I leave it up to you to decide whether that is good or bad.

All week
