2010-07-08/11 Weekly LOVIEE

My apologies for the delay. I’ve been battling a ton of computer issues this week in addition to recovering from the July 4th holiday. Obviously, I was unfortunately never able to post the special edition LOVIEE for July 4th. Hopefully this will not be an issue by the time the next major holiday rolls around.

I know I’m posting notice of at least a couple of these events with only a few hours notice, something I usually don’t do but made necessary by technical difficulties. Hopefully it will not be a problem in future weeks and months. Speaking of months, the monthly LOVIEE for July/early August is on its way as well.
