2012-05-28/06-03 Weekly LOVIEE

Due to computer problems earlier in the week, this was delayed slightly. So this is going to be a bit brief by comparison. I have received news about several great events coming up this summer, so the brevity of the listings here should be short-lived. Do note that a couple of these are copied over from the ongoing LOVIEE since I’m not sure who’s still looking there, and there are things there too good to simply be forgotten.
