2012-05-03/06 Weekly LOVIEE

Since I’m a bit late on the draw, this is going to be one of the more brief weekly LOVIEEs. The monthly LOVIEE for most of May/early June will be posted shortly.

If you like what you see here, spread the word. I’ve kept this blog going off and on for most of three years now. The official third anniversary of the wide launch will be 2012 October 5, and I’d like to have a reason to really celebrate it this year. More details to come.
