My son recently started going to daycare, and brought back viral goodies for the entire family — thankfully, it’s not COVID. As such, I’ve been down and out, and didn’t have it in me to write what I had planned for this week.
So, I’m just going to share some interesting links for this week, and hopefully, we’ll be back to our regularly scheduled programming next week. One other thing: I’m changing the send day for NPNR to Wednesday. So, look for the next edition on May 25.
