Today’s Music: Green Day – Let Yourself Go
Note on Today’s Music: It’s a bit potty mouth. But it’s a fun tune.
I’m actually a little happier than usual this Friday, despite a long week at work! I have no medical facilities to visit for anyone, I have two more concerts (that I know of) to look forward to this month, and of course, I got to read some great blogs!
These links are a bit more serious than the usual posts I put here, but they were moving and made me stop and think. Hope you enjoy them too. NBI talked about having and breaking a connection to a person that was an addiction. Steph Rogers spoke with shame about the actions of her countrymen, and BrickhouseChick taught me more than I had known about anorexia
Thanks to them for a set of brave posts, and everyone else out there for all that you share.
On a lighter (or more frustrating. Whatever.) note, last week there was a poll! And it was about every governments least favorite topic, climate change! Here’s what you said.

But this week, we’re focused on the climate that is summer. And we’re using an old classic as an inspiration.
