Your Licenses? Frankly My Dear…

These are things important to others that I find myself totally uninterested in: Virtual […]

Where Have All The Bloggers Gone?

One of the last of the Bloghicans hit his 3003 blog mark today. While out walking today, as it often does, that was swirling around in my head when I also, for some reason, cross associated with Pete Seeger (don’t ask for logic).
