Happy Thanksgiving weekend to my American readers! I hope you all get to eat your favourite holiday foods this weekend.
Here is this week’s list of poems, comic strips, reviews, and other stuff from my favourite corners of the web.
How to Tell if the Weather Is Going to be a Really Big Deal. This is something to keep in mind as winter approaches.
Small Cities in the US – Vermilion, Ohio via tayonthemove. This post is a review of a small town that the blogger recently passed through. I’ve never been to Vermilion as far as I can recall, so it was fun to see what this community is like.
Netflix and Ch-Ch-Chilly. Most of the towns I grew up in were nowhere near this small or isolated, but I was still reminded of my childhood a little. The Internet introduced a whole new world to me. I was so happy to have a wider social circle once my parents bought a family computer and signed up for it.
