It was a busy week here, as we got back into our normal routine after spring break. I had to have a major clean-out of my bookmarks and Google Reader. Call it computer spring cleaning. I’m about 3/4 of the way there, hopefully to finish this weekend and start next week fresh. There are a few links that I really liked this week.

We’ll get there one day but for now, this post will have to satiate me.
